Getting Our Kicks on Route 66

July 9, 2014

Wendy and I have returned from our big summer vacation, which was 11 days along the modern equivalents of historic Route 66 west from Tulsa as far as Albuquerque, New Mexico. Our focus was a long stay in Santa Fe, which also happened to be along the original route of old US 66. As my schedule permits over the coming weeks I’ll be posting about our adventure, narrating photos of our road trip out west.
