Just had to stop at the State Line to take a picture. Just before this we passed the tiny town of Texola, which has a bit of an identity problem. Since the date of its founding in 1901, the town has been known as Texoma, Texokla, and Texola--the result of conflicting surveys that showed it in Texas or Oklahoma at various times. #thechandlersroute66adventures #oklahoma66 #historicroute66
Built by Bradley Kiser in 1930, then in downtown Allenreed, TX #thechandlersroute66adventures #texas66 #historicroute66 #historicroute66gasstation

Route 66, Arizona | The only thing keeping me motivated at the moment is I will soon be back in the States. Motivation is something I am finding hard to have at the moment 🤦🏼‍♀️ • #route66 #america #southernblt #wanderlust #bucketlist #travel #arizona #getmeback #love #hot #summer #travelling #instatravel #happydays #findyourhappyplace #livelife #usa #stateside #cars #historic #historicroute66 #awesome #motiavtion #helpme

We had lunch at Ann's Chicken Fry House today. Originally the building was a 1948 gas and service station that served motorists on Route 66 from 1948 to 1966. In 1966, it became a restaurant named the "Three Bulls Steak House." In the early 1970s, the business was purchased by Al Burchett and his brother. They needed a new name, but couldn't decide on what name to use, so the out their names, as well as their wife's name in a hat. The winning name was Ann, which is Al's brother's wife. The food here was excellent! #thechandlersroute66adventures #oklahoma66 #historicroute66 #divesanddiners
We drove over the longest Pony Truss Bridge on Route 66 today. It was built in 1933, is 3,994 feet long, and has 38 Pony Trusses. It was so cool. This bridge was also used in the filming of "The Grapes of Wrath" starring Henry Fonda. #thechandlersroute66adventures #oklahoma66 #historicroute66
This rural Route 66 filling station, with an over the drive design, was built by Carl Ditmore in 1929. W.O. Waldrop bought the business/home in 1934 and renamed the place, the Provine Station. A small tourist court was added for overnight stays. In 1941, Lucille and Carl Hamons became the new owners. They raised their three children, Dene, Carl Jr., and Cheryl here. For 59 years, Lucille operated the business. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. #thechandlersroute66adventures #oklahoma66 #historicroute66

We stopped to eat on Route 66 on our way home from Missouri ... too bad I didn't get the whole sign, but we lookin good on our road trip!! #route66 #historicroute66 #oldroute66 #jubelts #vacation #onourwayhome #roadtrip
We had this place on our list of things to do as a maybe. I had already been and the price tag the privately run facility charged to stand on one corner of a giant hole in the ground for a few minutes seemed ridiculous. Yet as we drew closer and were low on gas right around the time we reached the exit for it, which conveniently had a gas station, we decided to live in the moment and go for it. Also, when I started posting from my adventures one of the first posts was a panorama from my first stop here. Wanted to see if I could do a little better this time. 😉 #roadtripusa  #southwest #arizona #instagramaz #exploreaz  #visitaz  #visitarizona #arizonacollective #igersaz  #igsouthwest #sonyalphasclub #sonya6300 #sonyalpha #explorearizona   #sonyimages #adventureculture  #route66 #historicroute66 #getyourkicksonroute66 #arizonahighways #see_arizona #azculture #sonyalphagang #roadsideamerica #lightroommasters #agameoftones #meteorcrater #crater #nmazcoroadtrip2017 #touristtrap
Pop's on Route 66. Also known as a "soda ranch and diner", it boasts having 700 different soda flavors. I wish we could have been here at night to see the soda bottle all lit up. But, alas. . . unfortunately, you can't do and see everything on Route 66. Soda bottle is 66-feet tall. #thechandlersroute66adventures #oklahoma66 #historicroute66 #sodas

The Round Barn of Arcadia. Built in 1898, this barn sits on the original alignment of Route 66. It was built by William H. Odor and the construction is considered an architectural wonder. #thechandlersroute66adventures #oklahoma66 #historicroute66 #barns
