Route 66 - Part 1
Whooo-Hooo!!! What a great and wonderful late start in the pouring rain. Then, a ride in a RED 57 Thunderbird, an interview with Rich at the Ra66it Ranch, BBQ in St. Louis and our first landmark that isn't there. Tim's working on some text to go with this...updates to come...work flow is being tweaked...smooth is the word for Sunday.
I was talking with Jim a month or so back about absolutely nothing and the subject of Route 66 came up. I reminded him that it would be ten years since we took that first ride, and Lord how things have changed since then. There was a silence on the other end, and he said;
“We ought to do it again”
“Yeah right” I answered.
“No” he insisted, “We HAVE to do it again!”
Long story short, we are.
We were trying to come up with a concept, a through-line for this whole thing, and I guess what it is all about is not so much just Route 66, but the very spirit of a road trip. Not the mileage, but the friends made and maintained. Not about the last time you saw something or somewhere, but how both have changed in the last ten years. It all about people, and change.
The comma is important.
