Last Updated: July 31 2016. I’m Buzze A. Long and I’ll be your host for our travels through the Heartland of America as I drive Route 66, Route66, Rout 66, The Main Street Of America, The Road Of Flight.
I’m named after my Grandpap Buzze. He always said he only knew of two things named Buzze – a preacher and a mule – and he wasn’t sure which one he was named after.
Child of the 60’s who has been traveling since inception in the womb.
Driving a Pontiac Montana minivan from PA to Chicago, the embarkation point for The Mother Road; then on to the Great Adventure of Driving Route 66. Get Your Kicks On Route 66!
Route 66 has many names: The Mother Road, The Main Street of America, Will Rogers Highway, The Great Diagonal Way, Will Rogers Memorial Highway, America’s Main Street. In the Far West, it follows The National Trails Highway, also referred to as The National Old Trails Highway.
We live in one of the greatest countries in the world and what better time to touch it than in the weeks leading up to the birthday of our country, July 4th. Looking forward to lots of fireworks and ICE CREAM!
Travel plans include lots of pix, a few stops along the way including a special one in Missouri and another one in Flagstaff, AZ.
This blog about Route 66 will include facts, pictures and my musings about The Mother Road.
I lived in Flagstaff for 5 years and am looking forward to seeing friends & family there, along with seeing how my old hometown has changed in the intervening years.
The bags are packed & ready to go. Leaving western PA approximately 1 PM on Friday June 24th 2016.
Come along on these travels so that you too can say, “I Drove The Mother Road Route 66”.
See you along the way!
