Kansas, the State Route 66 Forgot

Last Updated: April 23, 2020.

Day 2 of Driving America’s Memory Lane covered the span of Missouri.

Left Joplin, MO about 6:10 AM after a night at Pontiac Palace.

Driving west on MO66, this signage snuck up on me:

Should I take it or not? Taken! And it’s a good thing, Kansas is just a hop, skip & jump away.

We’re in Kansas Now, Dorothy!

The road narrows and winds toward Galena.

Stopped at America’s Most-Advertised Fast Food Joint ™ in Baxter and had their BigB “with” but no luck on refills of hot tea. Oh well, I got to do an upper-half sponge bath, including hair wash in their biffy.

It’s amazing how fast that goes with short/non-existent hair! Oh, well, back on the road… onward toward Okie-land.

It’s only 7:48 AM on Day Three – Monday, June 28, 2016 and already some great memories on #Route66.

Yesterday on Route 66.

Let’s see what the rest of the day brings.
