    It was an ok video but I've been disappointed by no mention at all of the "Angel of route 66" who wrote to lawmakers to revive small towns along route 66. He was responsible for turnung route 66 into historic route 66.

    Two issues with this: Y'all forgot to reference that 60's show, Route 66, with Martin Milner! Also, no "Life Is A Highway" in the background? Overall, very informative video. Road tripping Route 66 has been on my bucket list since I was 16. One day, one day...

    Oklahoma wants to rename a section of rt 66 to memorialize a president who won his seat by fear mongering, pushing racist and xenophobic wall and accepting help from a foreign power. Nice going Oklahoma... not. Why save it just to rename it after someone who fails at being a human?

    I know the yellow house! It hosts a salon nowadays, in a corner of the parking lot of Safeway (the only grocer in Williams). Our family does a traditional trip to the Dairy Queen next door each time we camp up at Whitehorse Lake. I love Williams and I'm so glad to see such a tiny little landmark mentioned as a piece of someone's history
