I was watching one of our local morning news program this morning and they were spotlighting a motel in Carthage, Missouri.
Carthage, Missouri is along the original ROUTE 66 that travels across our country. It encompasses 8 states and is also known as "The Mother Road" and "America's Highway".
The motel is Boots Court Motel and the famous Clark Gable stayed there. The hotel has been under revitalization and it is restored to the original decor. You can even stay in the very room Clark slept in.
Did you ever watch the television series "Route 66"? The series ran from 1960 - 1964.
A great show--every episode on the road. It was about Buzz and Tod, two young men who seek out adventure instead of being tied down, they do odd jobs to keep them going. They drove a Chevrolet Convertible. It starred George Maharis and Martin Milner.
