When I began my Route 66 journey, I never imagined that I’d end up writing about my experience for my day job at FIXD. Life has a way of throwing the unexpected at you, and here we are, with the first part of my adventure published today. If you’d rather read a long-form version of my journey across Illinois, rather than the more disjointed posts I made here along the way, you might enjoy reading this more refined version of the story.
A couple of weeks ago they also published my article about the history of Route 66. I started this as an introduction to the trip itself, but there’s so much history, it exploded into its own article. I went over a lot of this in bits and pieces in my posts along the way, but if you’re a history nerd like I am, you may be interested in this post as well.
