Driving Route 66 is not for anyone in a hurry. There is a lot to see and visit. Ghost towns, Maple Sirup (that’s right Sirup with an I, watch the video for an explanation), log cabin Chapels and giant wagons just to name a few.
This is a trip on Route 66 through Northern Illinois.
If you have never been on Route 66 it is a blast from the past. I often wonder if the Baby Boomers are the last ones to really appreciate this Mother Road. I remember traveling Route 66 from Joliet, Illinois to Los Angles, California back in 1963 with my parents. Back then it was just a road and all of the roadside attractions just seemed normal.
Enjoy the video and photos, there are more to come
