Over the years an odd tradition has developed with this blog and that is closing out the year with views from the inner sanctum, that odd enclave where ideas become books, memories made manifest in souvenirs and trinkets collect, and an eclectic library continues to grow. Yesterday, I spent most of the day looking for the office that was buried deep under piles of notebooks, folders, print outs, scans of old newspapers, books with colorful post it tabs, assorted pages of scribbling’s, mail, ledgers, and assorted odds and ends that seem to accumulate during a project. 
As Route 66 is such an integral part of our lives, the office is filled with mementos from road trips, notes from friends and fans of my work, and historic links to that highways past. How many Route 66 locations, personalities, or friends of the road can you find represented in the eclectic collection?

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.
