If Chris talks just like he writes, then it must have made the Dakota Indian's day. He's probably writng about his conversation with Canny on an Indian Forum somewhere. LOL

Talking Parts of route 66...

As always I enjoy reading your posts....when I was younger I had my fair share of british cars; MG's and Triumphs you would think that I would taken a hint that when a car is named after somone's garage.....(for those that don't know MG stands for Morris Garage and the joke is, "if it isn't in Morris' Garage it will be in someone elses, being repaired" ) Anyway, I have driven along parts of Route 66 with my travels to and from various places. Parts of it still look like they did in it's heyday, a little weather beaten but still there. Parts are missing completely, and others have become the perenial tourist trap. When I visit an area of the country, I typically try to drive the older US higways, those are the ones that still have the little mom and pop stores and motels on them, you get to see what America was/is all about by driving those roads.

Also Chris FWIW it takes about 6.5 hours at 500mph to fly across the USA Almost as long as it takes to fly to GB from the USA....
