The afternoon was far busier and most interesting. We had a couple of visitors from Nevada, MO and men from Tulsa and Jenks, OK. And then came our most interesting visitors of the day.
Kelly Ludwig, a young woman from Kansas City, has developed a Route 66 app for the iPhone! She and her friend from Lee's Summit, MO were traveling back home from a trip top Tahlequah, OK and found themselves on a short stretch of Route 66, so they stopped in to Afton Station to meet us. The app, entitled "Road Trip 66", costs $3.99, and it sure seems worth the money. We installed it on my iPhone on the way home from Afton (rather, Ron installed it while I drove) and it looks good! http://bestroadtripever.com/route66 I haven't had a chance to spend any quality time with it, but the small demonstration Kelly gave us at the Station was enough for me to be impressed. Ron Warnick reviewed it in February here: “Road Trip 66? iPhone app released « Route 66 News. Kelly told us that it now incorporates the National Historic Route 66 Federation's recently released the "2011 Dining and Lodging Guide" as well. Here's Kelly, taking some more shots.
The anticipated visit from the men from Rogers, Arkansas never materialized, but it was a fine day on Route 66 anyway. . . as usual!
