The Trip comes to an End with lots of Memories !!!

August 21, We leave Pontiac,IL. to head home.... traveling across Indiana and Ohio, we stopped at Van Wert, Ohio at a fairground for the night. The rain is all around us for the night. We wake up to sunshine and hit the road thru Ohio to Rt. 80 into Penna. We arrive at Penn Wood for the night to rest before the last run to home.
   August 23, Saturday, We leave Penn Wood for home, only 225 miles to go... We arrive at 4pm
Here is a recap.. We drove 9,511 miles over 3 months over 75 days on the road. We average cost for camping of $14.95 per night along the way. Gas was a low of $3.12 to a high of $4.00 in Yellowstone.
     We had a wonderful trip and met lots of interesting people along the way.Yellowstone should be on everybody's Bucket List .... Route 66 was like a scavenger hunt everyday looking for the Historical sites as well as towns sights too. See you down the road soon ...Thanks for coming along, I hope you enjoyed the pictures along the way ...only 45 albums were posted for your enjoyment.

Last day on Rt. 66

 August 19, Tuesday,
      Today we took a drive back into see the Mural Museum. Very interesting to see how the town was painted all over with the paintings on the wall. We also saw a special section where an artist does an invisible painting on dresses that only show up under a black light..see the pictures, it’s unbelievable to see them under light. Then there was also a Gold Leaf display on the history and the steps explained on how to apply the gold. There was a collection of pictures showing the artists that came  into the town to paint.
     Then we followed Rt.66 north thru Odell and Dwight to see old gas stations along the way. Our last town north was Wilmington where we located the Gemini Giant at the Launching Pad restaurant. However the restaurant was closed, so I hope it opens again so Gemini can stay on the property for all to see.
     We have reach the end of Rt. 66 that we want to travel, we are staying away from the Chicago traffic. Back to Pontiac for another day so we can catch up on laundry on Wednesday.
 See the pictures from Rt 66 last  leg..
