Laurie Garth is an Australian (from Burpengary, near Brisbane) who is a veteran of Route 66 travel, and yet I had never been in the right place at the right time to meet him face to face. He's a member of our Route 66 Yahoo eGroup however, so I feel like I've known him for a while. Today, I finally met him in person. He and his companion Jean Kewley are in the U.S. on another Mother Road adventure, and they visited with Tattoo Man and me for almost two hours today. What lovely and interesting people, and what a pleasant visit!
