Getting our kicks

                            on route 66.

OK. so technically we made better time driving parallel on route 40, but we had this strange sensation that we were in a Disney animated film, Cars.   http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0317219/.  Occasionally, we found ourselves driving a stretch of the historic highway, like when we stopped to fuel up is how we found this little restored gem in Shamrock Texas.

Although you can’t actually fuel up here, you can get  friendly tourist info.

We have an explainable urge to watch Cars. The teepee motel does indeed exist.

Regardless whether we were driving along historic route 66 or parallel on route 40, there are parts that are indeed nostalgic.  However; sadly, there are also many, many parts of the route that are run down and deserted like a ghost town.  #thestruggleisreal
