Default Route 66

Last year, to celebrate my retirement, I hopped on Route 66 in downtown Chicago and traveled solo to Las Vegas where my wife flew in to meet me.
Here is the blog I kept: http://66andbeyond.blogspot.com/

Only averaged 38MPG with my 2005 Jetta TDI, mostly because of my roof rack which generated quite a bit of wind resistance.

Otherwise, a joy to drive.

Very Nice. The wife and I have talked about doing that for years and maybe will one day. I've been through all the areas you visited and there is nothing more beautiful.

Great blog!
