Route 66 in Pictures
Just last night I learned that we missed out on a bit of American pop culture that would have been interesting for the roadtrip. We never saw the movie "Cars" which, apparently, is based on the story of I-40 killing Route 66. This was our experience too. Here are photos...
We used a book called Road Trip USA by Jamie Jensen, which pointed us to towns, sights, cafes and oddities along the way. I got into the greasy spoon cafes along the way.

Joe and Aggies in Holbrook, AZ.
Dinosaurs, dinosaurs everywhere. Holbrook, AZ.
19 cents per gallon.
We drove, a LOT. Actually, I rode a lot and Sachi drove a lot. There is something about the little gas stations that seems so American. It's like a little microcosm of the local population.
