Winter in Seligman 
spacer (1K)

We often are asked if it snows in Seligman. Here is a photo taken December 11th. 2009. Seligman received up to two feet of snow in the surrounding mountains.  We welcome the precipitation. The result of this will be a spectacular Spring.  We always welcome any form of precipitation. Soon Seligman will turn from the snowy white to a variety of colors when wildflowers begin to bloom this Spring.

Coffee Facts  
spacer (1K)

History

During the American Civil War when coffee was scarce, the citizens of New Orleans used chicory as a substitute. Today, they enjoy their coffee with chicory, which is mixed with a quantity of strong black coffee and hot, rich milk.

Also during the American Civil War, the Union soldiers were issued eight pounds of ground roasted coffee as part of their personal ration of one hundred pounds of food.  And they had another choice: ten pounds of green coffee beans.

We invite you to join us for your favorite coffee drink at our coffee bar.

American Flag Fun Facts

 Symbolism

Everything on the flag symbolizes attitude and resolve in American history. The 13 stripes (seven red and six white) are for the original 13 colonies and the 50 stars represent all the states in the United States of America. The colors in the flag also mean something. Red is for Valor and Hardiness; white is for Innocence and Purity; and blue is for Vigilance, Perseverance and Justice.

From Route 66 to Guatemala by Bicycle
spacer (1K)

Petr Zimola continues his travels (from the Czech Republic to New York - then journeying on a bicycle since New York).  Since we met Petr in Seligman in October, he has continued on his journey to the West Coast and then headed southward. His latest update was sent from El Salvador as he continues to cycle and share his enthusiasm with us.  The photo is of Petr overlooking an active volcano in Guatemala.  In December as we travelled through Guatemala, we were two to three days ahead of Petr and enjoyed his perspective on locations that we visited ahead of him. View our Guatemalan video at  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuAln0dNxdY.

Prospero Año Nuevo.

Greek Flag now on Route 66
spacer (1K)

This year we have a new flag to display with our flag collection. Our friends David and Liz returned to Arizona from an extended stay in Greece.  Thanks to their thoughtfulness, we now own a Greek flag. 

Greek contribution to New Years tradition:
The tradition of using a baby to signify the New Year was started by ancient Greeks around 600 B.C. They would carry a baby around in a basket to honor Dionysus, the God of Fertility and symbolize his annual rebirth.

Japanese Talent

An accomplished musician, a professional photographer, a great friend - That is Yasuhiko, from Tokyo, Japan. We have had the pleasure of visiting with Yasuhiko on his yearly visit to the United States. He has shared with us some of his spectacular photography from Route 66 and the Western States.
Just when we thought Yasuhiko's talent was limited to photography, we heard his musical abilities as "Gomente" on You Tube:

We look forward to seeing Yasuhiko's smiling face again on Route 66.

History

A Natural Wonder in the Making

The story of the Grand Canyon Caverns' formation starts 345 million years ago, at the bottom of an ancient sea. This was during the Mississippian Period of geologic time. The entire Southwestern U.S. was covered by ocean. As tiny sea animals lived and died, their shells and skeletons fell to the ocean floor creating a fine, oozy mud, very rich in lime deposits. This mud eventually became the limestone bedrock which is the base rock of the Caverns. Later on, forces deep within the earth, such as volcanic eruptions and earthquakes, cause the ocean floor to rise several thousands of feet, becoming the mountaintops of today. The Caverns' elevation is now more than 5,000 feet above sea level. These upheavals split the earth's crust. Rainwater started entering these cracks and seeping into the limestone. This was the very beginning of the Grand Canyon Caverns.

Classic Route 66
spacer (1K)

Ron and Jan Sellars brightened our day when they visited us this fall. Here is Ron and Jan's story.    
 
     We've owned the "Godfather" aka '32 Auburn for seven years.  Drove Route 66 from Santa Monica Pier to Seligman ....  Continued on to Oklahoma City before the good weather ran out.  Plan to complete the rest of 66 next year.  Bremerton Washington is home, but we travel six months a year in our motorhome pulling the Auburn on an open trailer.  Have now dropped and driven her in all 48 contiguous states, parts of Canada, and just long enough in Mexico for bragging rights and a margarita.

French Gift to The United States of America
spacer (1K)

The Statue of Liberty is one of the most recognized symbols of American freedom anywhere. Standing tall on Liberty Island in the middle of the Hudson River in New York City Harbor, the Statue of Liberty was given to the U. S. by the French in 1886. The French gave the Statue of Liberty, or Statue de la Liberté, to the United States as a token of friendship.

Alexandre Gustave Eiffel, creator of the Eiffel Tower, designed the interior structure, while Frederic Auguste Bartholdi was the sculptor.  Made of copper, the statue depicts Lady Liberty standing tall with the torch of freedom raised with her right arm.
 
Thanks to many of our French visitors on Route 66 this past year.

 Bonne Année !

We appreciate all the comments that we have received from our readers.  Our main focus is  Route 66 and the "Route 66 Experience" stories.  In turn, we have learned a lot from our newsletter readers about their part of the world through their emails and photos.  Thanks for the exchange and for letting us get a glimpse of your country.

Many have asked about past newsletters that have been sent.  Jeffery Seligman, previously featured last summer, suggested that we archive our newsletters.  This was a great idea.  Our newsletters are now archived on our website:

Seligman Yesterday
spacer (1K)

The Arizona Highway Department reported that more than 500,000 out-of-state cars travelled Route 66 in 1937, but Seligman experienced its real heyday after World War II when returning veterans and other motorists hit the road and made the Southwest a popular tourist destination.  Seligman’s businesses lured travelers along Route 66 with their exuberant slogans, signs, neon lights, and other gimmicks, until Interstate 40 opened in 1978, bypassing Seligman and signaling the end of the heyday of the Mother Road

Seligman Today

The National Register listing of a two block area of Seligman in 2005 as a Historic District focused additional public attention on Seligman and the value of preserving the significant historic resources that illustrate its history.

Coffee Facts  
spacer (1K)

Here's to Your Health

A scientific report form the University of California found that the steam rising from a cup of coffee contains the same amounts of antioxidants as three oranges. The antioxidants are heterocyclic compounds which prevents cancer and heart disease. It's good for you!
 
Advertisements for coffee in London in 1657 claimed that the beverage was a cure for scurvy, gout and other ills.

After the decaffeinating process, processing companies no longer throw the caffeine away; they sell it to pharmaceutical companies.

After they are roasted and when the coffee beans begin to cool, they release about 700 chemical substances that make up the vaporizing aromas.


We invite you to join us for your favorite coffee drink at our coffee bar.

Washinton's Birthday/Presidents Day
February 15th
spacer (1K)

 Washington's Birthday is officially to honor the life and work of the first president of the United States, George Washington. Some people see it as an opportunity to commemorate all past presidents of the United States.  Washington's Birthday is sometimes known as Presidents' Day. Some states pay particular attention to Abraham Lincoln, as his birthday was also in mid-February.  In the week before the holiday, schools often organize events and lessons to educate their students about the presidents of the United States and George Washington in particular. It is a popular day for stores to start their sales.

Many thanks to Cecilie who sent us a postcard from her unique home town, Hell, Norway.  Now we know for a fact that "hell has frozen over".  Winter temperatures can get down to -4 degrees F (-20C). Hell, Norway, population 352, is the home of the Hell Music Festival.

We hope to see Cecilie visiting us again this summer on Route 66.

Route 66 "Jim"
Route 66 to Holland
spacer (1K)

When Mieke and Wim Wiss from Lelystad, Holland visited Seligman, they were looking for a special souvenir.  One of our decorations in the front of the building was just waiting to be adopted.  Although we were concerned about the culture shock of leaving Arizona's high desert on Route 66, we decided that "Jim" would enjoy living in another part of the world.  Named by his new owners, this proud metal cowboy now provides Mieke and Wim with a perfect rememberance of Arizona's Wild West.  The picture of "Jim" shows him standing in the December snow in Holland. In the summer months, he will stand happily amongst the flowers in their beautiful garden.  We wish all of the family well.

In this video, there are Arizona Route 66 scenes including Seligman.  He not only composed the music but also performs his musical talent in the video which is a perfect fit for his photography.

The displayed photograph (taken by Yasuhiko) is a scene of the Tama River, a short walking distance from his house in Japan.

Hiking and Cycling at Grand Canyon Caverns

It's great to have a space big enough to have an adventure with refreshments never more than 1.5 miles away. Grand Canyon Caverns has virtually all 1,400 acres available to hikers, horse back riders and road trail bike enthusiasts. Our place has a perimeter of about 8 miles: most of it in second growth forest last logged in the 1940's with no plans to ever log it again. Our ranch family graze their terrific saddle horses across the whole property at various times of the year keeping everything fire safe and ready for cross country fun without ever leaving the property. Whether you hike,  bike or trail ride our paths lead to mesas with 360 degree views of 50 miles or more in all directions. We have an amazing pine forest that covers the whole East side of our recreation property for your enjoyment. We have hundreds of rare plant species thriving in our protected space. Take a break at our store along Route 66 or a mile East at the Cavern's restaurant...Everywhere you go in the distance you'll see our huge water tower at an elevation of 6,000 feet...which is why our forests are thriving. Come enjoy our outdoors before or after a tour of the largest dry Caverns in The United States and sixth largest in the world.

Elvis on Route 66?
spacer (1K)

The presence of Elvis is alive and well on Route 66 according to a Seligman visitor, Bree Reeves, from Las Vegas.  Bree, who works at Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, has informed us that Las Vegas is the wedding capital of the United States with over 112,000 couples getting married there in 2009.  A popular scenario is dressing up like Elvis and Marilyn Monroe for the ceremony.  Newly married couples usually go on to travel Route 66 and visit the Grand Canyon while they are on their honeymoon.  Graceland Wedding Chapel was the first chapel in the country to offer the famous "Elvis Ceremony" where Elvis performs during the ceremony. Since Bree has visited Seligman (three hours from Las Vegas), she envisions Seligman as a perfect backdrop for Elvis.

View some of the "Elvis ceremonies" on their website : http://www.gracelandchapel.com/ or call Bree at 800-824-5732.

Follow up article from Jean-Paul who lives in France
spacer (1K)


The world's largest replica of the Statue of Liberty, 12 meters high, was unveiled 4 July 2004 in Colmar, Alsace, France to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi. Colmar is the birthplace of Bartholdi, the sculptor of the Statue of Liberty.

The new statue was installed on a roundabout in a commercial zone where it welcomes visitors at the northern entrance to the picturesque Alsatian city, prefecture of Haut-Rhin.

Seligman History
spacer (1K)
 Around 1900, the Santa Fe Line moved its Arizona midpoint offices from Ash Fork to Seligman. Trains stopped in Seligman regularly, not only for mail and for cattle headed for the Chicago and Oklahoma City stockyards but also to bring tourists who dined and stayed at the big, handsome, new Havasu Harvey House, built around 1905 by the railroad for Fred Harvey. The Seligman Sundries building located in front of the Harvey House was built in 1904 and is the oldest commercial building still in existence in Seligman.

Coffee Facts  
spacer (1K)

Coffee berries start as green berries in their early stage of growth, then turn yellow, red, then dark crimson when they are finally ripe and yield the best coffee. In fact, according to the rule of "FIVE": the Arabica coffee plant takes about "FIVE" years to mature and produce its first crop. A healthy coffee tree will produce only about "FIVE" pounds of green beans per year, but only about "ONE-FIFTH" of a pound meets the rigid sorting standards to be sold as "Specialty Coffee."

We invite you to join us for your favorite coffee drink at our coffee bar.

March 17th - St. Patrick's Day
spacer (1K)

Happy Saint Patrick's Day to all of our Irish travellers!

The first St. Patrick's Day parade took place not in Ireland, but in the United States. Irish soldiers serving in the English military marched through New York City on March 17, 1762.  Along with their music, the parade helped the soldiers reconnect with their Irish roots as well as with their fellow Irishmen serving in the English army.

Details of Route 66 fundraising motorcycle challenge 2010 announced!!

2010_logo_web

 "End of the Trail"
spacer (1K)

"66-to-Cali" is located on the World Famous Santa Monica Pier at the end of Route 66!  After 83 years of having NOTHING on the pier to celebrate the Mother Road's fabulous finish, we opened last summer and have greeted travelers from around the world ever since. Visited by over 3.5 MILLION people every year, the pier got a long overdue addition on it's 83rd birthday this year when "66-to-Cali" resurrected a classic "Santa Monica 66:  End of the Trail" sign there that had been lost for over 50 years.  Make sure to get your picture taken at the "End of the Trail" sign, and please stop to say "hi" to owners Dan and Jessica at our "66-to-Cali" kiosk while you're visiting!

Coffee Facts  
spacer (1K)

So they say - The Italians drink their espresso with sugar, the Germans and Swiss - with equal parts of hot chocolate, the Mexicans - with cinnamon, the Belgians - with chocolate. Moroccans drink their coffee with peppercorns, the Ethiopians - with a pinch of salt. Coffee drinkers in the Middle East usually add cardamom and spices. Whipped cream is the favorite among Austrians. The Egyptians are extremely fond of pure and strong coffee. They seldom add sugar to it, nor milk nor cream. They serve unsweeteened coffee to mourners and sweetened coffee at weddings. The Italians are the unrivaled World Masters of Espresso.

We invite you to join us for your favorite coffee drink at our coffee bar.

Czech Filming
spacer (1K)

The very first Czech film about the famous Route 66 will be shot this Spring during this year’s first trip to the Mother Road.  Zdenek Jurasek from the Czech Route 66 Association announced that they will be leaving Prague on April 23rd - destination Route 66.
After arriving in Chicago on their 17-day tour to Los Angeles, they will begin filming the first Czech film about Route 66. 

On their tour of Main Street America they will be accompanied by a film unit under the direction of Tomas Zindler, Czech director and cameraman.  The movie that seeks to depict the beauties of the famous American 66 Highway from the perspective of the Czech and Slovak fans will be broadcasted on televisions in the Czech and Slovak Republic.  Plans are also underway to distribute the film on DVD.  Given that the footage is going to be shot in high resolution, they also plan to bring the movie to the cinema audience.

Seligman looks forward to their visit on May 4th!

This tour takes you on a 15-mile trip down the most dramatic stretch of river in the western United States. Their experienced guide will tell you the story of the area's soaring sandstone cliffs, crystal blue-green waters, abundant wildlife, exploration by Major John Wesley Powell and others, and the river's modern role in the Southwest's water and power delivery system.

Grand Canyon Caverns
Route 66 Attraction 30 Minutes from Seligman
spacer (1K)


When Route 66 travellers camped in the 1950’s and 1960’s, campgrounds always offered a nice picnic table and fire ring [weather permitting] with the gift of some space and privacy. That’s what Grand Canyon Caverns RV park and campgrounds offers to today’s outdoor enthusiasts.

The Grand Canyon Caverns has 50 full hook-up sites for RV’s of all sizes and special spots surrounded by the privacy of full grown trees without hookups but with potable running water.

RV and camping guests have full use of a big heated pool, disc golf course and miles of nature trails right on their 800 acres.

You’ll enjoy a great stay on top of their amazing caverns which are right below you and accessible by elevator in the cavern's building a short walk from your site.

London Visitors on 66
spacer (1K)

Las Vegas, Lake Havasu, Route 66 through Seligman and then Sedona. This was the route that Steve and Tracy Slade experienced on their two week tour of the United States. The British couple had an interesting story about their hometown of Great Dunmow, Essex, England. This town hosts the Dunmow Flitch Trials. A flitch of bacon (a salted and cured side of bacon) is awarded to married couples anywhere in the world who can satisfy the judge and jury of 6 maidens and 6 bachelors that in one year ond one day they have not argued.  The interesting story is on http://www.dunmowflitchtrials.co.uk/.  Any contestants?

Tracy and Steve are pictured with Lynne (left)  and Jim Conkle (right). Jim, representing the Route 66 Pulse newspaper and the Route 66 Alliance, stopped by on his regular Route 66 swing through Seligman. Steve and Tracy were impressed with the friendliness of everyone they met while travelling Route 66.

Arizona Rock 'n Roll on Route 66
Local Talent
spacer (1K)


Frank Fafara's rock 'n roll recordings were on radios across Arizona from 1959 to 1964. His 45 RPM vinyl singles were also popular at many of the jukeboxes along fabled Route 66. Frank and his band were quite popular in Northern Arizona and made many live appearances from Winslow to Kingman as well as in the nearby communities of Prescott, Mayer, & Show Low.  Fafara's "Only in My Dreams" CD album is a once-in-a-lifetime music discovery for Route 66 aficionados. It is indeed original Route 66 Rock 'n Roll.
 
Since drinking coffee was a mainstay for cross-country travellers on the original Mother Road, Frank Fafara recommends that you savor a cup of Fossil Creek's Route 66 Blend as you drive the road today. To complete your trip down memory lane, enjoy Frank's fun album as you drive along and listen to some of the road's original rock 'n roll music. The "Only in My Dreams" album also includes black & white photos of Frank and his band along with other legendary singers from those wonderful halcyon days of rock 'n roll.

Seligman, Arizona

The original name for Seligman was Prescott Junction.  Seligman developed when the railroad from Prescott to the main line was completed in 1886.  With the completion of the Ashfork railroad branch, however, the older Prescott branch was abandoned.  Prescott Junction thereafter gradually came to be called Seligman, named after two Seligman brothers, New York bankers connected with the A.&P.R.R., who owned the Hashknife Cattle company.  In May 1897 the A&PRR reorganized, abandoning Williams as its western terminus, substituting Seligman as its western terminus. At that time, the Williams round house was moved to Seligman.

Thief robs arcade with cup of coffee!

BERLIN
Tue Feb 9, 2010 11:32am EST

BERLIN (Reuters) - A thief in the German town of Hamelin robbed an amusement arcade by threatening the attendant with a cup of coffee, authorities said on Tuesday.
“He wasn’t going to pour coffee over her, he was going to hit her with the cup,” a spokesman for local police said.
Brandishing the steaming cup he had just ordered, the thief forced the 26-year-old to open the till and fled with the cash.
Police would not say how much money he had taken from the attendant, who had been alone in the arcade. “We don’t want to encourage others to try this,” the spokesman said.

Irish Friends
spacer (1K)

Route 66 travelers by motorcycle commonly travel the entire length of Route 66 from Chicago to Los Angeles.  An adventurous group of friends from Ireland stopped in Seligman on their journey. Their travels took them across the country and then back to their starting point in Chicago, a distance of over 5,000 miles.  This fun-loving group of friends all live within 20 miles of each other in Tralle, Co, Kerry, Ireland. Tralee is home to the internationally renowned 'Rose of Tralee' festival, held every August.

We thank them for sharing their story with us on their 4- week journey through the states and wish them well. Sincere thanks for the autographed flag of Ireland which is proudly displayed on our wall in Sundries.

Contributed by John McEnulty
Grand Canyon Caverns has many wonderful groups we host before and after their amazing journey to our neighbors and friends, The Havasupai Nation, at Supai, in the bottom of The Grand Canyon.

The Alpenglow Adventures organization is extra special.  Their mission is organizing hiking trips for people who can, and cannot, walk on the best hiking trails around the world.  We know the Supai Hilltop trail into the Grand Canyon just North of our Caverns Resort is one the most scenic anywhere on the planet.

Thailand to Route 66
spacer (1K)

Arin, Kusuma and family visited us in October of last year. Their interest in Route 66 and the Grand Canyon brought them back to visit us again this year on April 10th.  We were happy to see their smiling faces and be a small part of their travels.  Exchanging conversation about our way of life and learning about theirs was very rewarding for us.   

A valuable benefit being located on Route 66 is the education we receive when talking with our visitors and friends from around the world.

Elvis Visits Seligman

Meet Arron Philips from Worksop, England as he sings his way across Route 66 in Arizona.  We were fortunate enough to be serenaded by this Elvis Tribute singer.  He has promised us that he will let us know when his production CD is recorded. Throughout his performance, we thought that Elvis was in the building. Thanks for the entertainment, Arron, and good luck as you pursue your singing career. Elvis would be proud.

Route 66 Tattoo Man
spacer (1K)

Last year the 2009 "Person of the Year" Award by the Route 66 Alliance was presented to none other than Ron Jones, the "Tattoo Man".  We had the pleasure of visiting with Ron and his wife, Roz, as they passed through Seligman on their way to the Laughlin Classic Car show in April.

The "Route 66 Tattoo Man" has 84 tattoos that he has collected over the past 10 years.  83 of the 84 tattoos are classic Route 66 art.  A genuine Route 66 roadie, Ron has become an avid historian and supporter of Route 66.  People like Ron contribute to the individuality that is found on Route 66, all with the common purpose of keeping Route 66 alive.

"Always remember--No matter where you go--There you are.

American Pie
 
spacer (1K)

A much needed study of the best pie on Route 66 was conducted by Roger Naylor who unselfishly availed himself to the task. Classic home town diners from Flagstaff, Arizona to Kingman, Arizona were put to the test. This very informative study was  published by the Las Vegas Review - Journal in the Sunday Travel section. You can read Roger's reveiw by going to Roger's Pie Review.
Roger is a real supporter of Route 66 and writings about his discoveries on Route 66 will help to enhance your Route 66 Experience.

Carson's Road Trip With Friends
 
spacer (1K)
Carson with his family and friends from Worthington, Ohio near Columbus, decided to have a bachelor party with style. They flew to Phoenix and then traveled north to experience a Route 66 road trip.  This great group of young men made Seligman part of their celebration. The world famous Black Cat Bar was part of their adventure.  We enjoyed serving them coffee the next morning and listening to their enthusiasm and appreciation for a great visit to Seligman.  As one of the gentlemen said, "Route 66 is the way it used to be."  Carson is fortunate to have such great family and friends.  Congratulations on your upcoming wedding, Carson.

Also, thanks to the Black Cat (one of our great neighbors) for providing a comfortable setting where local residents and tourists can mingle and solve the world's problems.

Espresso new
spacer (1K)

The first rudimentary espresso machine prototype was created in France in 1822. Luigi Bezzera patented the first espresso machine in 1901, a steam driven design. Desiderio Pavoni purchased the patent from Bezzera in 1905, and through additional experimentation was able to produce better results by using a more optimum brew temperature of 195 degrees at 8-9 BAR of pressure. La Pavoni was the first manufacturer of espresso machines used in coffee houses. Modern day espresso in the commercial establishment is attributed to the Gaggia piston lever Crema Caffe machine, first introduced in 1947.

Ramblin' Jack is still on the road. During May Jack had to take Route 66 as he was on his way to a preformance in New Mexico. He is considered on of the country's legendary foundations of folk music. We thanked him for stopping by as we listened to his stories and music.

French Traveller Goes To New Heights
spacer (1K)

1870 - Mounted on their stilts, the shepherds of Landes drove their flocks across the wastes, going through bushes, brush and pools of water, and traversing marshes with safety, without having to seek roads or beaten footpaths.
2010 - Meet Manu Cuadra from Mimizan, France. Travelling on stilts from Chicago to Santa Monica, of course on Route 66, Manu said that this is his dream come true. This 42 year old adventurist wants to be the first and also to preserve the tradition that originated in his home town. Watching Manu glide down the road three and one half feet above everyone else that was walking was a sight to see. 

 A special thanks to the Grand Canyon Caverns, the Highlander Motel in Kingman, the friendly people of Oatman, and the Needles Chamber of Commerce who provided assistance on his journey west.

An American tour, including another stop at Carnegie Hall, followed, as well as Zucchero's first performances in Australia.

We enjoyed listening to his CD while he visited. He had the traditional "tow truck" escort out of town.

Reunion Island is 11,235 miles from Seligman. This French island of about 800,000 population is located in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar, about 120 mi south west of Mauritius, the nearest island.

Our visitors Albert Riviere and his friends wanted us to annotate the distance on our signs. There is a contrasting difference of  scenery of Reunionr Island with the scenery on Route 66. The espresso they enjoyed with us was our universal language.

Coffee Facts

The first wholesale coffee roasting company in America started business in 1790. That same year, the first advertisement for coffee in a newspaper was published. What is believed to be the first coffee roasting plant in America started operations at 4 Great Dock Street in New York City, now Pearl Street.

We invite you to join us for your favorite coffee drink

Independence Day
spacer (1K)

July 4th - 2010    Seligman, Arizona

July 4th is the day that the United States of America declared its independence from Britain. This day, a national holiday, is celebrated in a number of ways in the United States.  Fireworks, barbecues, parades and gatherings are traditional.  Freedom is the main theme of the celebration.

Pictured is a United States Marine Corps KC-130 taking off from Kandahar Air Base in Afghanistan. The crew of this aircraft sent us the signed photo along with a United States flag flown in Afghanistan on June 14th, 2010.  This special flight crew, along with all of the military personnel, are the reason we can celebrate days such as July 4th, symbolizing freedom.

Skating Along 66
spacer (1K)

Shane Reilly skateboarded by our store the other day. That is right... he "skated" by on a skateboard while pulling a miniature teardrop trailer behind him. Traversing Route 66, Shane is promoting his SK8-66 project.  Ten interactive sculptures of teardrop trailers have been placed on Route 66.  One of the ten has been placed at the Historic Seligman Sundries.  Each one of these sculptures is bar coded. From your IPhone or Droid, using a free Sticky Bits application, you can scan the bar code and then post your own Route 66 experience to that sculpture.  Follow Shane on http://sk8-66.blogspot.com/

Pictured is Shane on his skateboard with his miniature teardrop.  He is in front of our 1948 Invader trailer.

Vespa Power


Most 2-wheel Route 66 tours begin as the Harleys rev up their engines and roar down the road.  Georgio and Guiliana decided that a 50cc Vespa motor scooter would be just fine for them.  During their 2-month journey from Chicago to Los Angeles, they are traveling about 100 miles a day.  As they "purred" into our parking lot in Seligman, a group of Italian tourists provided them with warm Italian greetings.

After getting "refueled" with some espresso, we saw smiles and the traditional thumbs up, signifying their approval of the espresso.  Read about the interesting couple's story of a life filled with adventure and challenges. www.terraeasfalto.it

Normandy

An impromptu flag ceremony was held on June 5th.  Newfound friends from Normandy presented us with their banner from Normandy as we presented them with an American flag.  We appreciate the thoughtfulness of the international gesture and prominently display their banner in our store.

Tom Cousineau
spacer (1K)

When an imposing figure, 6'3" and in obviously great athletic shape, strides through your door, it gets your attention.  That's what happened when Tom Cousineau visited us recently.  At Ohio State, Tom was a -time All American and broke many school records for his football prowess in the late 1970's. With the Cleveland Browns, he was a two-time all NFL player. 

We thoroughly enjoyed visiting with Tom and his family.

The Slovak Republic
spacer (1K)

Slovakia is a country of almost 5 million people. A few of them decided to join Martin - from Travel America, CZ. - to experience Route 66 the traditional way, on Harleys.  They left Chicago on June 7th and stopped in Seligman on June 14th, heading to the West Coast.  Although we did not know their spoken language, their smiles told the story.  The "Greenhorns for Slovakia" are associated with the Czech Republic Route 66 Association.
