Route 66 Fun
Took a 7-hr trip from Oklahoma City to San Jon, NM.. Wow is I-40 BORING! However, there a plenty of windmills, as far as the eye can see! And hey.. While we're on a boring road, we may as well have some fun with Route 66 nostalgia, right? :-)
The Britten Leaning Water Tower: Who know, this looks unsafe to me!
Bates Motel Sign: I don't know what this is all about. It's not the original motel, nor is it where the Psycho movie was filmed. Found out that somebody put up this sign for art work.. Well, it gets a LOT of visitors! LOL!
Cadillac Ranch: Seriously.. a farmer put a lot of old Cadillacs in the ground and let people come to paint them. Has gotten a LOT of visitors over the years and is actually quite interesting!
The Cowboy: Who knows, it's just a Route 66 icon.. Ha!
Finally made it to New Mexico! Woot Woot!! Now things will get fun! For now though, it's time to rest our backs..
Stay Details: San Jon Village Park: This is a cute little park in the middle of no-where that allows people to stay overnight at their park. The spots have a picnic table, and the park has bathrooms and a garbage bin. The back field belongs to a school and houses a baseball field. When we arrived, we were there with one other class-A motorhome. By nightfall, 4 others had joined us in the park. Did I mention this is FREE??
