Left the motel around 6:45 this morning and stopped down the road at Walmart to pick up a few things. Then off to the historic section and the murals.
Got sprayed by a sprinkler system that was spraying into the road at an intersection just past the first mural. They have automatic sprinklers to water the grass in a little railroad park.
We had a great visit with a guy at a full service gas station. Oh and by the way it is a "gas station" not a convenience store. He pumps gas........period right on a corner of Route 66.
We got pics of all the murals plus one that isn't recorded in any advertising yet, that the gas station guy told us about. Hmmmmmm......gas station guy, I didn't even get his name even though I do remember it said Manager on his name tag.
Then we headed down the road and see the worlds largest rocking chair and man is it BIG. It's 42' tall and 20' wide. They won't let you sit in it though. Probably because it would be such a climb up into the seat of it.
We see lots of nice old buildings, old cars, motels, restaurants and even run I-44 for stretch and got off again for lunch. After lunch when we were getting gas we felt some sprinkles. Sooooooo.....we hit I-44 again and outrun it with only a few sprinkles on us.
Decided to get a room in Carthage, MO for the night and not push our luck. It has guest laundry so we did the clothes up too.
So here we are in Carthage, MO at the Best Western Precious Moments. What a nice place it is and I would recommend it to anyone passing through looking for a room. It is probably the nicest Best Western we have stayed in and only $69 dollars for the night.
Does anyone know what this is?
Have a nice night everyone.
