Miss Route 66 travels her namesake

Kara Knudsen, 18, of Norco, Calif., was crowned Miss Route 66 for 2006-07 at a pageant in Barstow a while back.

To her credit, she’s been traveling the road that provides her title, according to the Winslow (Ariz.) Mail:

She and her grandfather, Robert Knudsen, 75, have been travelling their favorite road eastbound for some time; visiting the historic sites, meeting people and collecting souvenir pins along this stretch. They stopped in Winslow last week to stay for a few days while traveling around to see local sights and visits friends in the area while staying around to participate in the Winslow Christmas Parade.

She’s also trying to promote the pageant so that other towns along the route create their own pageant, and it event becomes a nationwide event “to promote the 66 history and culture.”

    Hi I am Kara Ann Knudsen. I had such a fun time traveling down Route 66 creating wonderful memories with my grandfather. I learned so much history and exciting facts about the Historic Route 66. Learning all kinds of interesting facts is enabling me to be a great ambassador as Miss Route 66 2006-2007. I have many pictures and exciting memories to share! Do YOU have a main website or e-mail?
    Thank you, I hope to hear from you soon.
    Miss Route 66,
    Kara Ann Knudsen
