Barbie reports from Route 66
This reporter's job never gets dull. I've done the Olympics with the pagentry and 1/100th second gold medal wins. I've had the thrill of the Obama convention. Now it's time for a little road trip.
It's official the eloping duo leaves Adrian, Michigan early early Friday Morning to begin their Route 66 journey to the Coral Sands.
I'll be pushing off from Chicago as soon as I file this while the boyz will be crossing Ohio and Indiana. We plan to meet up near St. Louis where they will be joining me on Route 66. Don't worry they'll be doing the part of the Mother Road they missed, north into Chicago, on their way home.
The trip should be enlightening. For a roving reporter there is nothing more thrilling than riding that road not taken before. I am very interested in meeting up with this guy and asking him about his hot dog, I hear tell it's the size of Ruby's "Dinah" He's on Route 66 in Atlanta, Illnois just north of Lincoln. He used to work in front of a restaurant called Bunyon’s in Berwyn, Illinois (also on old Route 66) from about 1965 to 2003.
I'll be filing a story or two on our caravan way west, so stay tuned.
(Midge, I'll meet you in Santa Fe, we can always make it a double wedding!)
