At the beginning of the tour .
Our next real stop was in Clinton, Oklahoma, where the sight of the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum was. For a small fee you can go through many rooms which show how the famous road was over each ten year period, starting back when car and trucks were barely able to move. Each room played music from that era, and it was fun the go through that alone. The displays covered both the kinds of cars, but early areas showed a few of the tools and devices used to create the roads that made up Route 66. The last room was a small theatre where a twenty-minute film was shown going from the early days to the end, which was caused by President Eisenhower when he decided that the autobauns of Germany was what America needed to get from one place to another quicker and easier. Naturally, the tour ends in the gift shop, and I found a tee shirt that I liked.
We had stopped in an Indian Souvenir Shop along the freeway, but that doesn’t really count. So I won’t tell you about it and the fact that we spent another good long half hour and found a little something for our other son. I can’t say what it is because he might read the blog before we give it to him and that would ruin the surprise. And like I said before, I’m not even gonna talk about it.
