I was talking to my Dad the other day and he brought up a road trip he has always wanted to take. He mentions it from time-to-time, but it's so cool to hear the passion in his voice every time he mentions it.

Dad has always wanted to jump in his 1957 Austin Healey and just enjoy a nice ride on the Mother Road, from start to finish. We even talked about how he would pick me up in Amarillo and we would finish out the trip together. Not a bad father-son bonding experience, if you ask me.

U.S. Route 66 is also known at the Will Rogers Highway and was established in 1926 and it one of the most iconic roads in America. It begins in Chicago, Illinois and runs through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and wrapping up in Los Angeles, California. I would estimate that you would need to plan on a least a week for a one way trip on the 24-hundred mile roadway, but imagine all the beautiful sights and attractions you would see.

I found a pretty cool site that kind breaks down a lot of the questions you would have if you planned driving Route 66.

I would have to say that this is a trip that is on my bucket list.
