Getting ready for a road trip

I recently returned from a family history research trip to Tennessee and soon we will be off on a road trip to Missouri.  While none of the places we will be visiting are in California, I find I have no pictures of the trip to the Arizona border on Interstate 40. I guess we drive it so often, it doesn't occur to me to take pictures of something that has become boring.

There are many things to see and do between our home and the border so this trip, I will be making an effort to document some of those places. Route 66 runs from San Bernardino to the Arizona border and yet, I have not taken the time to see the historical sites along the way. They probably don't grab my attention because as children, Route 66 was our route to Texas to visit family. I can drive this in my sleep so it's time to make it interesting again.


  1. You're doing a lot of traveling this summer! I'll look forward to seeing what you discover. I find that taking pictures to show other people makes me much more interested in what's familiar to me.

  2. I recently got back from a three week road trip back east to NJ and TN. I've made this trip many times and never grow tired of the trip. I get tired from the long daily drives, but I don't get tired of the route. Someday I hope to slow down and take in more of the sites. The Route 66 tour would be one that I'd like to do.

    Hope you had a good trip to Missouri.
