Programming and providing support for this service has been a labor
of love since 1997. We are one of the few services online who values our users'
privacy, and have never sold your information. We have even fought hard to defend your
privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket
to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we
also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

If you had a flat on the drivers side, the motorist had little of no room changing the tire with fast stream of traffic close behind his back. No maneuvering circumstances and totally dangerous at that. You could be easily hit and dragged down the Route 66 roadway if you were not careful.. A lookout was necessary for your protection,
Crouched down on your knees trying to change flat tires with traffic buzzing behind you real close and dangerous...
New "66" to the south modern, wide with shoulders and outstanding safety features compared to the old.
New "66" to the south much of it updated and divided, eventually with bridges, underpasses and frontage roads, Eventual Interstate 40 fh officially replace the old Highway 66 routing in this particular area.
