"To me, Route 66 is a fascinating puzzle, an archeological dig of over 2448 miles, through over 7 decades of roadside Americana. My desire to discover as much of the old alignments of Hwy 66 as possible led in 1994 to collaboration with fellow road historian Jim Ross on "Here It Is!" the best-selling 8-state set of Route 66 maps, and in 1998 to "Bones of the Old Road," a video exploring mysterious "lost" sections of the early roadway (with videographer Kathy Anderson). 2005 brought the acclaimed "EZ 66 Guide for Travelers," a complete guide to touring Route 66 which I researched, authored and illustrated, published by the National Historic Route 66 Federation. I have written extensively for Route 66 Magazine, the Route 66 Federation News and American Road, where I am a Department Editor."
