Routing of the Trip

(ORIGINAL VERSION – OCTOBER 2009)

Here is the originally proposed route.

The actual historical Route 66 is from segment 03 (Chicago) to segment 20 (Santa Monica). The rest of the trip segments I put together based on what I thought might be interesting, and so that we would be going back a different way then we came.
