She has put in a lot of years on Route 66, and she says they have been good ones.
I was curious about the long distance travelers she had herself seen. She spoke of many.
- pushing strollers
- carrying backpacks
- on horseback
- with small dogs
- with support vehicles
Mostly, she remembered bicyclists, and lots of them. She went on to say that some years the road was busy with these folks and then other years not so much.
She spoke of the help the travelers received and how that seemed to be such a surprise to most of them.
