Hi all, some friends and I are looking at doing the old route 66 next year or the next. I was wondering what info you guys could give me. Should I go on a guided tour or do it ourselves ? The guided tours seem to be very regimented and I can understand that but I would like to be more flexible. Are there any books, maps, websites, and any other info that you could recommend ? I'm particularly interested in historical sites and the geographical formations along the way. Also, the little lady does not camp so inexpensive motels/hotels would be a plus as well. Thanks for help you can give and maybe we'll see you along the way.
