Last summer we had a visit from a couple of folks who were in the process of turning a 4,000 acre spread into a guest ranch right outside of Afton. I haven't heard much from them since, but I just visited their website and it appears that they're open for business. Their website is: JMC Ranch . The site includes some photos and contact information. I'm just telling you this because if you're traveling Route 66 in the future and would enjoy a very different kind of accomodation, and maybe learn a little bit about riding and roping (or at least watch others do it) this might be for you. If you are traveling with (or on) a horse, they will board it for you. RV hookups are also available. If you decide to inquire about their facility, tell them I sent you.
