What have your experiences been with Route 66?


For many years, a National Park Service preservation program has tried to preserve landmarks and tourist destinations along Route 66.

However, federal funding for the program is scheduled to expire in two years unless Congress comes up with an alternate plan. Some of the tourist destinations in Arizona and elsewhere along the route could be affected.

Cronkite News wants to hear what experiences you have had traveling Route 66. Any funny stories or unforgettable memories? What are your thoughts on the potential future of Route 66 without adequate funding? Even if you never traveled the route, do you believe the legacy should be preserved?

We will not publish your response without your permission. A journalist from Cronkite News or the Public Insight Network may contact you for further reporting.
