    After Route 66... You should do the Great Loop!





    I have looked into the Great Loop, the only issue I have with it is my current boat uses considerably more fuel than would be advisable. The average speed on the loop is 8 MPH between the locks and the various wake limits. To change out boats I would prefer to go to a diesel powered around 32-34 in that class I love the Mainship Pilot 34 Sedan, (Rumrunner edition). The loop also requires about a year to complete and I would be best served doing it when and if we sell our current home, prior to moving on to the next one.

    My buddy and his girl did it this summer 


    they said they tried taking the old route as much as they could 

    That seems to be a recurring theme, as we get closer I expect we will jump back and forth from the various super highways to see the attractions. If we are retired and have no definite schedule, time is not an issue. My first thought is we would start in a rental car from Chicago, drive one way covering the route and then take the California Zephyr from Sacramento to Denver and fly home from there. Give ourselves a decent cushion to allow for the train/flight connections and just enjoy the drive.

  3. We were kicking around some ideas for a vacation. Watching some different documentaries and came across "Passport to the world : Route 66" and wondered if anyone has done the drive from Chicago to Santa Monica via the old route 66.


    Lots of interesting restaurants and nostalgic sites along the way.

    Anyone tried it?

    Is it worth the drive?

    Tips for best things along the way?

  4. I went to college and played volleyball with George Santos, obviously I was the backup as his skill set was so incredible that he took up two positions on the court any time he was out there. Sadly he played in 26 of the 22 games we played, so I really never had a chance to show my stuff.
