Off We Go

This car and I are the same age. It has 53,900 original miles on it. I think I have more miles on me than she has!

The mechanic has his doubts that I can make it from Richland, Washington to Kansas City. I believe in her.

I’ll head south into Oregon then east to Twin Fall, ID. From there I’ll head south to Vegas and on to Phoenix.

After a short stop there I’ll head north to Route 66 and east again, winding my way home to Kansas City.

With a pound of jerky by my side, cigars, plenty of water, and a full tank of gas…off we go!


Russell Viers

I'm just a guy who finds the world an interesting place and likes to capture certain moments with a camera. They aren't for sale, or anything. I just like them. Well, usually. I've taken a lot of photos I don't like, as well.

How Far to Vegas

Day Three: Another morning waking up in a cheap hotel along the way with bad coffee. I love this. Yesterday was NOT without event, although nothing worth raising the blood pressure...

Stopping to Fixing the Wobble

I’ve had a wobble when I get over 65 since I started, but I’ve not really worried about it as I’m generally going slower than that on the back roads. Well it got worse coming out of Brownfield, TX, so decided to find a place.

It Was All Over the News

I saw it from the interstate, the old, neglected, neon, motel sign sitting along old Route 66. I had to exit and go back. The old motel was as neglected as the sign. This place hasn’t had a patron in ages...
