That's what a visitor from Australia wrote in the Guest Book today. Apparently they enjoyed their visit to Afton Station, and I certainly enjoyed their visit. What a fantastic day, with a lot of foreign travelers on Route 66 again today. I handled the crowds alone most of the day, but Betty came in at a perfect time to help me out when a group of 11 on bikes from Lucerne, Switzerland, came in near the time I needed to close up and head for home. Thanks so much, Betty!
Ed Klein, a true hands-on Route 66 advocate, stopped in on his way home to Arizona after being away from home for 2 months, during which time he worked on a number of Route 66 projects. For the past two days he's been working on renovations of a couple of rooms at the Boots Court in Carthage, Missouri. We discussed, as we have before, the acquisition of the Rest Haven Motel sign in Afton. I do hope that this possible soon. We shall see. In the meantime, it was great getting to meet Ed in person for the first time.
