RAIN. Yippee! We need it badly. COLD AND DREARY. Boo! Sure cuts down on visitors to Afton Station. We left a little early today because we couldn't imagine anyone wanting to play tourist on a day like today. Hope we didn't miss anyone. There were only three visitors today, from Denver, CO and Omaha, NE.
I may have more to report tomorrow, as I'm going to dinner with Route 66 friends. Should be fun, and a good way to warm up.
I'm the owner of Afton Station, in Afton Oklahoma, a small private Route 66 memorabilia and antique car museum housed in a restored filling station. We are visited daily by both domestic and foreign travelers who are exploring the charms of old Route 66. Their stories will be told here (and maybe a little bit of other stuff, too.) Since I live 80 miles from Afton Station, a straight shot on Route 66, you'll probably hear a lot about the Mother Road, too.
