Three Cool Route 66 travel tools for your Kindle and Iphone

This edition of Route 66 for Kids — newly updated for 2012, and available on Amazon for the first time ever — is a parent’s guide to the best museums, playgrounds, zoos, amusement parks, ice-cream stands and other kid-friendly attractions that line the shoulders of the Mother Road for 2,448 miles from Chicago to Los Angeles. Here you’ll find addresses, phone numbers, hours, admission prices and other information to help you plan an unforgettable family vacation on America’s most storied highway.

Join author and internationally known Route 66 expert Emily Priddy as she shows you where to catch a drive-in movie, pet a wild burro, or sleep in a wigwam on historic Route 66.


Route 66 Pocketbook As seen in Route 66 Magazine, this is full of facts and never before seen photos from Route 66. Sold in 66 Museums, Angel’s Barbershop, Blue Swallow Motel, Meteor Crater and many other trading posts. This is the 8th edition and the first Kindle edition of the little book that has sold thousands of copies over the years. Also known as the World’s Smallest Route 66 Book, this is a fun read with all the basic 66 facts and plus more about the people, places and things on the old road.

I’ve downloaded this ebook and while it’s full of facts and figures about the “Mother Road” it seems a bit hard to follow. However we’ll give it a road test on our “Retro Roadtrip” next month and I’ll be sure to let you know!


Route 66 app for Iphone – “Road Trip 66″ contains more than 1,400 roadside attractions, motels, neon signs, restaurants, and museums on the Mother Road. Using a Google Maps base, it helps guide you down the proper path of Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica.

I’m an Android user myself – but if you want details on this be sure to check out the review on Route 66 News that has all the technical details!

Little America in Cheyenne is just such a unique place. Luxurious, but a throw back to another time, with a decorating scheme in

#4 – Detail of Kitchen handles from other house

My friend over at Ranch Handy posted about this Kitchen (not hers) quite some time ago, but I’m not sure she ever found these handles…aren’t they cool? I also LOVE the knotty pine cabinet doors. We had a ton of this in our old house – knotty pine built ins and we loved it. Even when we ripped out a wall with closets between two very small rooms, we carefully saved all the lumber. The
