Route 66 in Oklahoma: Mile 69

This historic service station on Route 66 in Vinita is constructed from native stone.



  1. Route 66 friend,

    It has always been my dream to drive the whole length of Route 66 and it looks like I will be able to realize my dream soon. I am female, traveling alone, in a small motorhome.

    It is a long story that I’ll be glad to share with you if interested, but to make a long story short let me just say that I plan to drive from Illinois to California starting November 1, 2009.

    I have been following Sandi’s blog ( and it has inspired me to do something, some sort of project, related to the Mother Road.

    And this is the reason I am writing to you today, to ask for help and inspiration in coming up with a project that would benefit Route 66 and that I could do along the way.

    If you have ever thought of something that someone should do about or related to Route 66, please let me know, I would appreciate your suggestions. Perhaps something that can be “collected” along the way, but not necessarily objects unless you have a good idea, either way. I am open for any suggestions you may have.

    I am not an artist or photographer and I have never written a book but I have written both a thesis and a dissertation as I do have two advanced degrees, a masters and a doctorate.

    If you’d like to know more about me, you can see my old travel blog at and my new blog at

    Also, if you have any tips about what to do or see along Route 66, where to eat or where to park overnight, I’d love to hear those too.

    Thanks for your time and I look forward to your advice and suggestions regarding Route 66.
