The End…

September 3, 2009 by

So that’s it. We flew off from LAX. But we just had enough time to pop into a Route 66 Bar in the airport itself to have one final stodgy american meal. Good Times.

There were loads of other small roadside attractions along the old route 66. Sometimes it was difficult to find them, and sometimes we just came across some weird stuff. Here’s a few bits we stumbled upon.

Full video coming soon

August 30, 2009 by

Well the blog is nearly over.

Though Luke has been busy editing all the HD footage of our trip into a small documentary and plans to nearly finish it this weekend. We took about 16 hours of video footage, and he has cut it down into about an hour long piece.

So hopefully after he has finished I will be able to chop it up into 10 min episodes and post here on the blog for all to see.

Walnut Canyon

August 27, 2009 by

Outside Flagstaff, Arizona we visited Walnut Canyon National Monument.

Wandering deep down into the canyon we could see living quarters built into the cliff faces where people used to live and store food in the area.

We drank a stupid amount of water that day.

Puerco Pueblo

August 26, 2009 by

An old village site, with massive rock formations. Ancient carvings (petroglyphs) can be seen in the rock made by people hundreds of years ago, well they lived there from AD 1250 until about the late 1300’s.

The clouds out there looked amazing too. And this crumbling rock face below may not look that big, but was huuuge.

Key Lime Pie

August 25, 2009 by

Santa Monica, LA. After reaching our final goal – the end of route 66, we headed off to the English pub and had some traditional english food.

But then we wanted some traditionally American food. And Luke kept going on about trying some Key Lime Pie, so on the way back we popped into the one place we knew did it.

Four Beers and Four Key Lime Pies please!

Very tasty it was too. Hooters!
