A more detailed posting about Saturday evenings Chillin’ on Beale Street, and details about forthcoming events, will follow this afternoons visit to the dentist. A quick summary is that a good time was had by one and all.
As an added plus we were able to share the fun, the delightful weather, and a little Kingman hospitality with some fine folks from Australia as Dale Butel and his tour group arrived just as the festivities got under way. There were gun fighters, a wide array of vintage cars, music, and an overall pleasant evening

The wide array of vehicles on display was truly amazing. They ran the gamut from a new Challenger and Camaro, to a retractable hardtop Ford, motorcycles, vintage trucks, and even a De Soto and colorful hot rods.
The next addition of Chillin’ on Beale Street is scheduled fort he evening of May 15. If your motoring east or west on the double six, I hope you will be able to join us.
Now, an explanation for the title. It only takes one bad apple to spoil the barrel and the bad apple that left a very sour taste with our visitors from down under was a very rude, and even abusive, service station attendant.
On behalf of the people of Kingman, I apologize.

If you enjoy Jim Hinckley\'s America, take a second to support jimhinckleysamerica on Patreon!


Jim Hinckley's America is a grand adventure on the back roads and two lane highways. It is an odyssey seasoned with fascinating people, and memory making discoveries. As made evident by the publication of fourteen books on subjects as diverse as diverse as Ghost Towns of the Southwest, The Illustrated History of the Checker Cab Manufacturing Company, Travel Route 66, Backroads of Arizona, and The Route 66 Encyclopedia, I enjoy sharing adventures and helping people plan for their own memory making journeys.

Thank you, shared adventures are the best adventures.
