Route 66: more Missouri …

DAY THREE: We drove the old road as much as we could today! Sometimes we got a little bit lost, but that was OK, because usually it led to a good discovery…

And then we DID manage to visit a few places we really wanted to stop at… like “Gay Parita,” Gary Turner’s place in Paris Springs MO! Gary is an amazing guy! He greeted us as if we were long lost friends… and he took the time out to chat with us a bit about the Mother Road and about the places and people along this stretch…

We enjoyed Gary’s hospitality, and would have liked to have stayed longer, but we had to get back on the road…

It seems like, even with all the time that we have, there is just never enough time to do all that we would like… We need to keep up our pace or we will fall hopelessly behind!

The funny thing is that this was supposed to be the ultimate trip… and in fact, it is turning out to be something of an introduction rather than an emphatic conclusion… and so, for me personally, it makes me think about coming back and doing each section in much greater detail…

I guess I have been bitten by the road bug…
