Moderators mountainborn Posted June 29, 2008 Moderators Share Posted June 29, 2008 Easily located on old historic Route 66 in Elk City Oklahoma, the museum is a step back into the childhood of those that traveled it in the era. Here is our first view as we drove down Main st. in Elk City: We found lots of paved parking with easy access and a paved access completely around the entire city's block that the museum occupies. Butcherknife and I would be walking along the self guided tour route when suddenly one of us would get very quiet, deep in thought, remembering. . . . . Then the other one would quietly say, tell me about it . . . . . We shared the grandest stories about family, friends and the good times of the era. For example: Didja' ever ride a well worn, hand me down bicycle for many miles, delivering the "GRIT" newspaper, as you saved nickles and dimes ? All the while dreaming of the day when you would be able to deliver those papers on a shiney red Cushman scooter ? When we strolled hand in hand around the corner and there it was . . . I just kind of froze in place. After a few seconds of silence, Betty said, "tell me about it". I did. It was a story of sweat, flat tires, bad dogs and a chain that just would not stay on that bicycle. Yep, we had a grand old walk down memory lane at the Route 66 National Museum ! > PS, note the reflection on the hood of the jeep in the first photo. It was many miles yet to the high mountain jeep trail passes out in Colorado and the jeep was still fairly clean. I would rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth 08' Oliver Legacy Elite HULL NUMBER 0003(sold) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
