What is also neat for me is my Airstream is a 1951 so it was being used in the same environment.

Thanks again for sharing - more is always better...

Thanks. That is a good suggestion. I don't know if I have too many more from back then but remember a couple from about 1945. I will gather (find) them and begin a thread. I will look forward to all the other contributions.

In Oct. '95 I drove on "old" Rte. 66 as much as possible but mostly had to follow Rte. 40. NW of Tucumcari is Conchas Res. a beautiful place to camp, swim, fish, perfect sunsets and few people. Camping with 3 dogs that love water makes for a soggy tent but we had an inlet to ourselves and just ran wild! I can't wait to travel back in my Airstream. I still have 3 dogs but only 1 from '95--she's 20 and still swims.

If it's a good time to go , we are not tied to 66 and are open to suggestions of places to visit and camp there that are dog friendly.
Depending on your dates, you could even make the Branson Rally dates 12-14 October!

That's one of my "must do's." Should be a great trip. AZ will be fine in October.

If I were to do Route 66, October would be my choice of month to do it in. Love those cool nights. Have a safe trip and post some pix when you're through. Make sure to check out Oatman, AZ. Quaint little historic town where the burros have the right of way.

October will be great for your trip, right now's our rainy season. Look for the cheapest fuel at the boder between NM & AZ - Lupton -(we stopped just off I-40), the "J that Flies" in Winslow (they also have a website where you can check fuel prices nation wide), and Maverick in northern Flagstaff. AZ welcomes you!

Its got be a Rt 66 trip

Now I am really ready to go 66 again. We just got back from Door County, Wisconsin ( been going there for 25 years and its great) but I have a hard time staying in one place with the Airstream, love that open road.
Our Chesapeake Vinny will be going, so camping by water is a must in order to keep him a happy dog camper. We will probably go as far as Kingman so any campground suggestions along 66 that are dog friendly and near water are greatly appreciated.

October is the perfect time of year to be in NoAZ...the "high country" as we desert rats call it. The "monsoons" will have passed by then...the days will be pleasant and the nights will be cool and refreshing. There are several campgrounds, private and public in the area of Flagstaff. Have a great time and drive safely! And most of all, have a blast!

Happy Trails and Tales...TB
