Route 66 Confidential

Kitsch hallmarks Old Route 66
(Click to enlarge)

After leaving Flagstaff, we decided to travel on some of the old, historic Route 66. We stopped in Seligman, AZ, where we bought a few postcards, saw a few old cars, ran into a bunch of Finnish bikers (annoying!), and had pie at Westside Lilo's. We drove through some interesting old towns and along some nerve racking stretches of road. We also enjoyed some modern variations on an old roadside classic: Burma Shave signs! We definitely had some "kicks on Route 66!"

It wouldn't be a road trip without Route 66! Glad you had some pie!

What not Stuckeys?

Marley: So true. So, so true!

Cele: Nope, no Stuckey's sadly. I loved their pecan brittle because it had coconut in it.

Hee Hee. I loved those Burma Shave ads. And that pie! Mmmmmmm

Maya: Burma Shave signs are the best. I wish more advertisers would use that format. So much more interesting. Wish we'd tried the schnitzl at Lilo's. Perhaps another trip?
