Books, Planning and an Update

Friday, October 15, 2010

We have purchased several books to help us in our planning for the Route 66 ride. The best one so far is Route 66: EZ66 Guide for Travelers. It has page by page maps and directions. The best part is that it's spiral-bound.

Another was given to us by a friend since she is done with the ride. Motorcycle Guide to Route 66

The third is Route 66 Adventure Handbook. It has a lot of information on the fun places to visit on the trip.

Our friends from Australia, Bill and Robyn, are finalizing their trip plans to get to the US next spring. They will fly to Los Angeles and then take the train to Texas where they will pick up their bike that they have stored with friends. We plan to meet outside Chicago in early May. We don't know how much of the route we will do together. Our trip is leisurely since we are retired. Theirs might be a bit tighter since they will have a drop-dead date to return home.

All in all, things are progressing!

Ride safe,
Stu and Donna

Hi Donna and Stu, How much did you pay for the EZ66 Guide for Travellers. Sellers I found on the net want about AU$60 for a new copy; is that about right?
Regards,
Bill & Robyn

That is pretty pricey, Bill. In the US it's under $20 full price and at Amazon it's less than that (click the link in the article to view it).
