Route 66 – part 1

We are here in Chicago after a not to bad a flight lasting eight hours and ten minutes. What greeted us was worse than we left behind in the UK, snow! A couple of pics from the plane windows shows it’s not that bad, but it’s a little chilly compared to what we were expecting.

After we managed to get through customs etc. we were thinking about the car. Originally we wanted a 2015 Mustang of course, looking at the luggage and possibility of bad weather we decided to swap for a nice new Ford Explorer instead.

R66-3

There was plenty of traffic on the way to the hotel for our overnight stop before we spend the day here and loaded up on supplies. We did get stung for $40 to park the car overnight at the hotel though. But when your tired you can’t be bothered to argue.

We are hoping to find the sign for Route 66 where it starts tomorrow, you can’t come all this way without a pic of that can you? Lets hope we find it.
