We want to make a summer roadtrip and drive the complete ROUTE 66(Chicago - L.A) with our 9 year old son, starting in july 2004. Does anyone have info and suggestions, esp. HOW MUCH TIME do we need, is 4 weeks enough? We're planning to drive in a family car and sleep in motels etc.
Thanks a lot

It can be a little challenging to drive the entire route since the original route 66 route has been broken into little chunks that are not connected to anything. However, there is a superb web site that chronicles a trip made earlier this summer along the entire stretch of Rte 66. Daily logs, photos and articles are on-line at the <a href = "http://www.cart66pf.org/66caravan/index.htm">Route 66 Web site</a>.
Four weeks is sufficient. Also be sure and check out our <a href= "http://www.roadtripamerica.com/links/route66.htm">Rte 66 Resources page.</a>
