Route 66 (aka The Mother Road) helped shape the history of America. Commissioned in 1926, it was the first highway to link Chicago to Los Angeles crossing eight states along it’s path. Route 66 became America’s highway and the ultimate road trip. Sadly it is no longer necessary for cross-country travel and has been replaced by interstates with no stoplights and no special places, just a way to cover ground in a hurry. But as the movie Cars taught us; the real joy of traveling is to slow down, take the road less traveled and enjoy those special places (think Radiator Springs). Cinematographer John Holod’s newest RV Adventure video captures the essence of the Route 66 experience in the soon to be released “Route 66 RV Adventure: Exploring the Mother Road”. As John points out, “Route 66 is special, it crosses the rivers, plains, mountains and deserts of eight states. Come along for the over 2,000 mile ride as we explore it’s drive-inns, gas stations, museums, kitschy roadside attractions and most importantly, it’s people. Americana at it’s finest! Today, visitors come from all over the globe to travel what some call the most magical road in the world.” The video is scheduled for release September of this year, but you can catch a sneak peak here! Anything that contains the words “RV” and “adventure” is for me. Looking forward to the video and traveling more of Route 66 during future RVing adventures!
Note: There are boondocking locations along Route 66 too. The adjacent picture was taken just south of Ludlow, California
