Default Re: route 66 pt. II or the happy birthday ride

leaving out of Joliet you come to the fork in the road, straight ahead there is a rout 66 marker or you can follow the road that cuts off to the left. I followed the marker, it wasn't the road to take though cause it put me on I-55 with no way to get back. the road to the left is the one that takes you to the beginning of route 66 in Chicago. so that ended my kicks on route 66 so it was time to head home. I picked up us-12 for a nice senic ride through the south side of Chicago before making it back to Hammond, IN.. from there I followed us- 12 then took us-31 north. I took I-94 east to Watervliet, MI. and stuffed my self with a whopper, fries, chocolate chip cookies, and a coke from burger king. the burger king lunch worked its magic and by the time I made it to Jackson, MI. I was happy to see the rest area and relieve my self. feeling much better and much lighter I made the hour and a half ride home from Jackson, arriving about 17:15 and 808 miles for my weekend trip

I appreciate you taking the time to do this Ride Report. I admit that while I know Rte 66 starts in Chicago, I always think of the "Out West" portion when I think of Rte 66. Your pics show a different perspective.

I wish it were a little easier to post pics on this forum...

Doh! Nevermind, I see you weren't out west, but if you head that direction check out the town. It's cool!

Did you ride thru the town on Rt 66, think it's in AZ, where the goats have the run of it? I've ridden thru there in 1998 but cannot remember the name of it.

I only had time to make it out to Pontiac, IL. one day from Detroit to Pontiac and one day to get back home for my birthday celebration with the family

Cool pics.

Some of those places would make ideal bonus locations for an endurance rally.
