If this is a bit tough to read click to enlarge. This is a page from the latest issue of Garage Gear, a British publication. It was forwarded to me by Maurrie Salenger, the marketing manager at Voyageur Press.

Imagine my surprise to see that listed as the number one prize in an upcoming giveaway was a copy of Route 66 Backroads! I am just getting over the concern that someone will catch me imitating a writer and then this happens.
Still, it does provide a glimmer of hope that the dream of becoming a writer when I grow up is drawing closer to being a reality. Perhaps I will even become a writer that eats every day!
On a serious note I felt that this should be shared with you, the folks who make Route 66 Backroads a success. Thank you very much for the support, the encouragement and the ideas.
The launch date for the website, route66info.com, is drawing closer. The home page is complete, the bio page is finished, the references page is almost finished and the first photo gallery is also nearing completion. I hope you enjoy the finished product and will feel free to contribute ideas and suggestions to help make it your number one source for information about Route 66 and the other historic highways of America. As regular readers may have guessed vintage cars and trucks will also be a big part of the website.
The long and short of is is this, the website will be an expanded version of this blog. This will allow for the blog to be a bit cleaner in context, a little more streamlined with less clutter.
One final note for today’s post. The date for the big book give away is drawing closer so sign up as a follower of the blog today, don’t delay.
