We left Santa Monica June 30th, and made it all the way to Williams Arizona. We stayed at The Route 66 Inn on the east side of town. Williams is a must see along Route 66. Well, actually, all the towns along Route 66 are a must see in my opinion. We did stop off along the way to interview a few people in Seligman Arizona. This town was by passed by the interstate and almost shriveled up and blew away. A man named Angel Delgadillo and the people of Seligman rallied around the town they called home, and started an organization to promote their town and all the towns along Route 66 in Arizona. The other 7-states soon followed. I had the honor of speaking with Angel, his daughter Mirna, and son-in-law Mauricio. On day two of our trek eastward, we made it to Albuquerque, New Mexico. If you like country music check out Albuquerque's classic country music station 104.7 at www.classiccountry1047.com Today, July 2nd, we made it to Clinton, Oklahoma. Our goal is to make it to Missouri by the foruth of July. I would like to cover how a small town along Route 66 celebrates the nations birthday. At this rate, we hope to make it home by July 8th. That would make it a full month we've been on the road, but from here we do have a few stops to make along the way to shoot some more broll. That would be the only thing that would slow us down. Happy Fourth of July!!! And thanks for checking in!
