The Mother Road. Current maps do not include old Route 66. Route 66 is 2448 miles long. (about 4000 km)

Route 66 was commissioned in 1926, picking up as many as possible bits and pieces of existing road. Route 66 crosses 8 states and 3 time zones.
Route 66 starts in Chicago, and ends in L.A. (Santa Monica).

Some people think driving it in the opposite direction is historically wrong, but it's mainly a lot harder as all available documentation goes the "right" way. In 1926 only 800 miles of Route 66 were paved. Only in 1937 Route 66 got paved end-to-end.

You can only drive parts of Route 66 these days... it has been replaced by the interstate highways I-55, I-44, I-40, I-15 and I-10, but still a surprisingly high amount of old road is waiting to be found by the more adventurous traveler.

Route 66 is also know as "The Mother Road", "The Main Street of America" and "The Will Rogers Highway".
During all of its life, Route 66 continued to evolve, leaving many abandoned stretches of concrete, still waiting to be found by the more curious and patient traveler.

Route 66 was also the title of a TV series playing from 1960 till 1964
Cyrus Stevens Avery from Tulsa Oklahoma can be called the father of Route 66
In 1985 Route 66 was officially decommissioned, but for daily use it was replaced far earlier by the Interstates.

The National Historic Route 66 Federation is the worldwide, nonprofit organization dedicated to directing the public's attention to the importance of U. S. Highway Route 66 in America's cultural heritage and acquiring the federal, state and private support necessary to preserve the historic landmarks and revitalize the economies of communities along the entire 2,400-mile stretch of road.
Some parts of old route 66 are very cool, e.g. the General Store in Hackberry Arizona. The original highway went from Chicago to Los Angeles.

The act of putting cocaine in a lubricated condom, tying it off, and inserting it in a partner's anus. A needle is then used to carefully prick a small hole (or holes, known as the "trucker challenge") in the condom, allowing the cocaine to start to leak out, and allows for the bottom (henceforth called the "ride") to start getting high. The top (henceforth called the "driver") then continues to have sex with the ride until the cocaine leaks into his body via penal skin absorption. Once both people are riding the cocaine high, the act of coitus is then known as a "Route 66", named after US Route 66; an influential road established in 1926 running from Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica, California. It is known as this because of the length of time necessary for the driver to begin the high, meaning that the act itself is all about the long ride. Best done at sunset, so that the couple can look to the sunset and get a good view while riding Route 66.
