Today started out with Wendi finding an origami bird on her bike. Gotta mean good luck right?
As we left the hotel at 8:30am, it was already 84 degrees. We thought the bird was suppose to be "good" luck. Well, we headed north off I-40 on Route 66, which actually dumps us back on to I-40 further East. Nothing exciting to report on that little …

Took a drive into historical downtown Winslow later, this was the town in the EAGLES song,
"Take it Easy"
" I was standing on the corner of Winslow Arizona such a fine sight to see"
" It's a girl, My lord, In a flatbed ford, slowing down to take a look at me"
So course I had to get my picture taken on this famous ...
