Travelers Retrospective #1: June, 24 2013
I can't believe that this past weekend celebrated the first time my family and I ever took a planned trip down Route 66. Saturday would be eight years since we left, which means eight years ago today we left Claremore, OK finally ending up in Shamrock, TX for the night. Eight years ago today we saw the Blue Whale of Catoosa, traveled down some forgotten stretches of 66 in Oklahoma, saw the flour mulls at Yukon, and ate some fantastic real Texas Roadhouse BBQ in Shamrock, TX. It was also the first time on our trip that we made it to our motel before 6PM. Thank God we did because we would see a lot more the day following.
