Anything that combines seeing America, RVing and art, I love, love, love.
That’s what ‘EZ66 Guide for Travelers’ by Jerry McClanahan offers.
“Eighty percent of the original Route 66 is still easily drivable, but often not on ordinary maps & signage. The EZ66 GUIDE is the answer to finding the route, most of it suitable for RVs. This is the ultimate guide for exploring the Mother Road whether you’re driving west or east. Its maps & directions are comprehensive yet easy to follow. Highly rated.” Convenient 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, 216 page, paperback format. Available on Amazon for around $25.
Noted Route 66 author, artist and historian, Jerry McClanahan has been mapping Route 66 since his family vacations during the 1960s, when he sat in the back seat of the family Ford, trying to draw his own crude map of the road, according to his website, McJerry66.com
Born in Oklahoma in 1957, Jerry s family moved out to sunny Southern California in 1959 (sadly, they did NOT take Route 66). Then there followed a decade of wonderful journeys down the ‘Mother Road,’ from California thru Oklahoma City.
Jerry rediscovered Route 66 in 1981, when he and his father made a trip out west, stopping at everything this time. Since then, almost every year has found Jerry making numerous expeditions along the route, mapping, photographing and collecting information. Much of that information is found in ‘EZ66 Guide for Travelers.’
In 2008, Jerry moved to Chandler, Oklahoma, where he welcomes visitors to his art gallery, just a stone’s throw off Route 66. Read more about McJerry’s Route 66 Gallery on RVShortStops.com
