California Route 66 Road Trip

It’s me! Matt Stone. Back in 2011 my wife Dianne and I went on an epic road trip across the United State of America, we started in Chicago and followed the old alignments of Historic Route 66 as far as Flagstaff, AZ (see our video of the trip here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YrPONHckPp8). We went up to Las Vegas followed by Los Angeles and San Francisco which meant we missed some of the best sections of Route 66 through western Arizona and almost all of California.

On our trip to Los Angeles where we spent most of our time at Disneyland, Anaheim (video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jY1DTQZ25vA), we did a day trip into the California desert along Route 66 as far as we could drive in half a day.

We stopped off at the McDonalds museum in San Bernardino where we met the museum curator Jack Marcus, the California Route 66 Museum in Victorville where we had a personal tour of the museum from Lou, one of the volunteers who had many amazing stories about the collection and his own life growing up in the USA, with our final stop being Barstow and seeing the famous Harvey House and Train Station.
