The 2007-2008 edition of the ever-popular Oklahoma Route 66 Association Trip Guide is hitting the streets this week. Copies have been distributed at some state tourism centers, and over the course of the next few days, volunteers will be delivering copies to the association’s member businesses across Oklahoma.
The 72-page guide includes a full-color cover, maps, turn-by-turn directions, information about the history of the towns along Route 66 in Oklahoma, photographs, trivia facts, a business directory, an Oklahoma Route 66 Association membership application, and more.
Copies will be available at the Sapulpa Route 66 Blowout (June 1-2 in downtown Sapulpa), Tulsarama! (June 15-17 in downtown Tulsa), the National Route 66 Festival (June 21-24 in Clinton), the Oklahoma Route 66 Association office in Chandler, state tourism centers, and many Oklahoma Route 66 businesses. Plans are also in the works for the guide to be available as a downloadable PDF on the Oklahoma Route 66 Association Web site.
And if you happen to bump into yours truly along the road somewhere, odds are good I’ll have a few copies stashed in my beloved Starlight Express, which frequently doubles as a rolling tourist information center.
UPDATE 5/27/07: The Trip Guide can now be downloaded in six parts from this site as Acrobat files.
