    We came through Amboy in Jan.2006.We stopped at Roys and bought T -Shirts. No gas at the time but it was suppose to be have gas by the Spring.I would have liked to have had more time to hike to the crater but didnt get to. Will probably be going back through in July,and will give an update then.

    I stopped by Amboy on September 28, 2006 -- no gas yet (and I think it will be years before that happens again).

    My friend & I just finished our own 66 journey, traveling for 15 days from Chicago to LA. Road Dog is right...those last 80 miles in LA will kill you. I thought they had taken the Santa Monica Pier & had moved it further west!! It was dream I have had for about 15 years & finally found the right one to make the trip with. It takes a special person to enjoy looking at old motels, old cafes and old ruins of tourist "traps". I loved every mile & plan to do this again in 2010. A fever for the old highway took me over & when I returned home I felt as if I had left "home" behind me on 66. I have never had a trip move me in such ways. I am a Baby Boomer and the sites on old 66 reminded me so of my childhood that I had to brush the memories from my face as if they were gnats on a hot summer night. Route 66ers make up a kind of cult & now I am a member, having my baptism on the highway. No longer an armchair journeyman through books; I have had the real thing & nothing will ever feel the same again. Next time, I know to allow more time. Route 66 is a woman you love slowly and not rush. Next time, I'll give it more time.

    I had hoped to make a faster trip, but you just have to stop and talk to people.

    All 66ed out, but will do it again...in a couple years.

    Keep on Down that Two Lane Highway. --RoadDog

    Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! I've never felt that special attraction for Route 66 -- but I do have several "favorite" roads and certainly know the feeling - thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. And we look forward to any more that you post here.

    Default Hard to Beat

    One of the great road trips to take, anywhere. Definitely takes you back.

    Glad you enjoyed it.

    We're thinking another end-to-end in 2009.
