The man behind the Triangle Motel January 20, 2014

KC Keefer’s latest clip in his ongoing “Genuine Route 66 Life” series consists of an interview with Alan McNeil, owner of the long-closed Triangle Motel in Amarillo, Texas.

You have to give McNeil credit — he keeps plugging away nearly eight years after he started and with not a lot of money in hand. A lot of people would have given up long before.

I think he keeps at it partly because of a workday in 2006 where eight roadies removed hundreds — if not thousands — of pounds of junk from the motel’s rooms made the task a bit less overwhelming. I think it stunned him people cared so much about the project.
