My plans instead of FF '09

To start I really wanted to make FF '09 this year but being that no decision has been made about where, when, or how FF '09 is going off I decided to take my own road trip. I commited to driving Old RT 66 this summer with my Dad. We're taking 2-3 weeks and hitting every tourist trap and roadside attraction we can find. We've bought the tackiest RT 66 shirts and blues brothers sunglasses. Also a must do while we're out there we're hitting up Bonneville for speed week. Once we get to Cali we're picking up my 1968 GTO that has been in storage since I was in third grade and trailering it back via the interstate. Hopefully it'll be everything we hope. For anyone that has driven 66 in the past do you have any stories "must sees" or advice for us. Thanks so much and hopefully I'll be able to make FF in '10.

Cool let us know when you're in the area. Route 66 is really close if you want to come all the way out here.

If you get the chance to stay in Needles, CA, on your trip, DON'T. Unless of course you enjoy 119 degrees during the day and still miserable at night
