Over the course of the past few months we have touched on the possibility of tours being offered in the Kingman area several times. Well, recently this idea moved closer to fruition.

So, just out of curiosity, who would be interested in a one of a kind tour along Route 66 and sections of the National Old Trails Highway from Kingman to Seligman with yours truly as the guide? Who might have interest in a customized tour of the seldom explored Kingman historic district as well as the cities Route 66 corridor, including segments of the National Old Trails Highway, celebrity associated sites, and the former Kingman Army Airfield?
To eliminate any confusion it should be noted that I am still working with Rick Thomas of Open Road Productions to develop custom tours. This, however, is for the development of customized tours on Route 66 or in the southwest.
For my dearest friend and I, the absolute highlight of our Route adventures is the people we meet along the way, friends we share those odysseys with, and opportunities for seeing the road anew through the eyes of visitors. As an example, last Sunday we were privileged with an opportunity to share a lunch and lively conversation with Slyvia and Bernhard Hohn.

What a charming, enthusiastic, and adventuresome couple. We are looking forward to seeing them next summer during the European Route 66 Festival in Germany.
In addition to a new found friendship, they blessed us with some excellent German sweet treats. Sylvia also shared this photo as a souvenir of our lunch together.
Good times on the old double six, you betcha!
