And we have the meet photo.


Left to right: Brandon Gorte (me), Brian Rawson-Ketchum (rawmustard), Kim Harvey (kharvey10), David Backlin, Jason Ilyes (jpi), Carl Kittle's wife, Justin Schwendeman, Carl Kittle.  I apologize for not knowing the last three on the right's names completely.

Anyway, here's a US-66 shield for you to water your mouths over.


It's a frontage road detour near Elkhart, IL.

And a very usable bike path.

You did better than me when I tried to decipher the names at the Central PA meet. I had a lot of question marks and nobody bothered to actually type out their names.

Justin's last name is Schwendeman. I rode with him for most of the latter portion of the meet. I believe the other gentleman who rode with Kim is Carl Kittle, and he was with his wife.

I was actually in St Louis last weekend but I did my own sightseeing trip. Anyways is the US 66 shield supposed to be some kind of joke? I would think IDOT knows it no longer exist right?

It's a contractor sign for a detour.

Eric and Justin Near were not at the meet.

My bad. I didn't look closely at the photo, and when I saw a male and female and the names Eric and Justin, I presumed it was the Nears. Eric's wife is named Justin.

Funny Eric Near story -- he's originally from Ironton, Ohio, and he came to the Charleston, WV meet I hosted back in 2008. He texted me and said he was somewhere on I-64 and then he concluded the text with E Near. I didn't realize it was from him, as I thought someone was saying they were on 64 E(ast) Near... and then the rest of the text didn't come through.  :-D

Though parts of the highway have street signs saying "US Highway 66"
