Last July we moved from Garden City, MI to Kingman, AZ which is the heart of old Route 66, our new home is within walking distance of Route 66. We've ridden up and down the old Route, stopping in at various tourist stops from Seligman to Topock and into Needles, CA. Many stops along the way carry Route 66 soda which is sweetned with cane sugar, not corn anything. I started collecting the bottles and have been trying to decide what to do with them, here's my, "Route 66 Bouquet". If you're ever in the area, Oatman, AZ is a MUST stop, the little town is a real hoot.
