Miles of Possibility Conference, Joliet IL, October 2017

We had lunch here with David Clark during our excelent day tour. The Chicken was Fantastic!

With no Official Route 66 Festival this year, Bonnie and I attended the Miles of Possibility Conferences in Joliet Illinois. This was the third MOP Conferences and our second.  We had pre-arranged a Tour of the Chicago Route 66 Area with David Clark of We spent Monday with David walking the strets of Chicago and then setting out on the road to Joliet to see the sites. David gave us and exceptional tour. He was also a speaker at the Conference.

On Tuesday we picked up our rental car and headed south on Route 66 to visit the Litchfield Museum and to see and visit Terri Ryborn’s Sprague’s Service Station in Normal, IL. We made stops in Pontiac and many other towns along the way. We spent the night in Springfield and then the next day visited Litchfield and Normal. On our return trip we stopped at the Cozy Dog for lunch and met Buz Waldmire. After lunch it was back on the highway to Joliet.
