Editor's note: It was Kathy Miller's passionate opinion on the following subject that inspired the web site team to create this new feature, 66 Soapbox. Here now is the first (of hopefully many!) opinions voiced here about all things Route 66!
Is the Great American Road Trip on Route 66 really that great? Over the past two weeks NBC broadcast a television show called “The Great American Road Trip.” They tout it as “a wholesome show the whole family can watch!” And it is just that, I can say that after watching it I agree, it is a wholesome family show! On the NBC website it says this about the show, “Adventure and competition prevail as seven families begin their journey across America on Route 66, beginning at Chicago's Wrigley Field.”
