Free Range Vagabond Route 66

FREE RANGE UPDATE

Life on the Free Range According to the pictures found on egg cartons, Free Range chickens are happier.  So why not humans?  It turns out we are.  September twenty-ninth marks the one year anniversary of our vagabond lifestyle and we like it! Vagabond chickens are right. The plan was to settle somewhere within a month of…

A productive week of Route 66 fun!

Anniversary Trip Photos

As mentioned last week we took a little road trip to celebrate our fourteenth wedding anniversary. We spent our first night at the La Posada after hanging around the Motor Palace. The night was so nice we lost track of time and got back to the hotel to find the Turquoise Room closed. Luckily our…

Route 66 at night 1

Here’s a few pictures taken around Route 66 at night. Some have been published on websites, Facebook, and other blogs others have been sitting in our archives for years. We’ll post ’em in small batches so you don’t get sick of them all at once. Just Cruisn’ Car Show. They have a burnout contest on…

Jenny’s

These are shots inside the remains of what was once a bar so notorious the city of Winslow purchased it (and the Motor Palace) just to shut it down. Jenny’s was the kind of place few people seem to have direct knowledge of and fewer are willing to talk about.  It was connected to the…

New bath tub.

We just got a bath tub for the Motor Palace from Al & Anna in Orange. Al’s a Winslow fan and an Urban Designer who went to school in Flagstaff. They even offered us a break on the price since it was going to a good home.   Bondorella even got in on the action.
