Bought a map

RandAtlas-LargeScalspiralboToday I bought a map. Actually it is a “road atlas” of the United States, and hopefully it will help me figure out the route we have to take, so that i can plug it all into a mapping program and figure out roughly how long the trip will really take.

I mean we know it will be long. But we need to get a baseline idea.

And so the map…. Uh, I mean Atlas…

Current maps (even “road atlases”) don’t show Route 66 anymore… officially it no longer exists! But luckily there are lots of other travellers who have left breadcrumbs on the internet so we can plot the line of the old route across the current mix of roads that have replaced it.
