Hail, Hail! The Gang's All Here!

Afton Station celebrated the start of March in a big way, with a full house of visitors almost every minute.   What fun it was!   We had about an equal number of travelers and regulars, 19 in all.   Our travelers came from Oklahoma City OK, Dallas TX, Milwaukee WI, Catoosa OK, Chelsea OK, LaCrosse WI, and Neosho MO.  

First in the door was this family (mom, grandmom, and cousins) from Oklahoma City and Dallas, and what a great way to start.  The whole family is extremely enthusiastic about Route 66, have done a good bit of travel on the Mother Road in the past, and always stay in mom 'n pop motels.   It's so great to witness such enthusiasm, especially after a long, lonely winter.
From LaCrosse, Wisconsin came this couple, also happy Route 66 travelers on their way home from a trip.
Lots of friends dropped in, too, to celebrate the Grand ReOpening.    Betty, Tattoo Man, Crazy Legs Walker, Robin and Phil, Marly and Sue, and our young volunteers from the Afton school all stopped by.  As usual, Ron M. was with me all day and I don't know how I get along without him.  Also, David came by with six friends from Anderson, MO and took them for rides in some of the old cars.   It got a little crazy at times, but I'm not complaining. 

I forgot how tired a full day at the Station can make me, so I'm going to stop here because tomorrow is another day.  Hopefully, I will be more articulate after a good night's sleep.   See you in Afton tomorrow!
