So, my Joplin friends, how many of these places have you been to? If you’ve visited them all, then I applaud you. If not, here’s your challenge: For one day, be a tourist. Start at North Range Line Road and trace historic Route 66 solely for the purpose of pleasure and discovery, rather than as a means of getting from point A to point B.
You might even play “(Get Your Kicks on) Route 66” to get you in an adventurous mood.
If you ever plan to motor west,
Travel my way, take the highway that is best.
Get your kicks on Route 66.
