Hello out there…
It’s only been a few days since I posted about our February trip to Texas and Florida, but it felt so good to actually be writing again, and trying my best to figure out the “new” version of WordPress, that I am compelled to jump right back in the saddle here and try it again.
On this warm and sunny (yeah!) Tuesday here in Aurora, Illinois, I’ve enjoyed spending some time reading other blogs and posting some comments. I’ve also been at work on writing another article for The 66 News, the newsletter for members of the Route 66 Association of Illinois. I’m proud to be associated with this wonderful group and serving as a board member. Anyone who has any kind of interest in The Mother Road, should look into joining one of the associations.
For those eager to get out on the road again, the annual Route 66 Association of Illinois Motor Tour is just around the corner, June 9, 10 & 11. As always, there will be plenty of fun over the course of that weekend. This year, the Tour’s theme is “Remember When…” and it all begins Friday, June 9 in Edwardsville, Illinois, at 5:00 p.m. CDT at the Comfort Inn.
Saturday morning is when the drive begins from south to north with many nostalgic stops along the way. That evening, rounding out the day’s drive, there is the Hall of Fame Banquet in Lincoln, Illinois.
Anyone who is looking for a way to get involved and explore the Illinois portion of “America’s Main Street,” this is a terrific opportunity to join us for the ride!
For all of the details and cost and basic itinerary, visit the Route 66 Association of Illinois’ web site: il66assoc.org
Now, I have to get back to writing that article for the newsletter. Deadline is fast approaching. See you on the road!
