Follow my progress along Route 66 to Chicago and back on the map below. It will be automatically updated (with a slight location fudge factor) during my trip.
As well as using the handy Trackserver plugin and Trackme app for Android, I am also using the Route 66 Navigation app (available on both Apple and Android). It has turn-by-turn instructions – which will be very handy because I don’t have a real, live navigator with me – and stacks of points of interests so I can complete my photography mission.
I’ll also be taking two travel guides to help navigate in the right directions and steer me towards interesting sites: Lonely Planet Route 66 Road Trip Travel Guide and the seminal Route 66: EZ66 GUIDE For Travelers, both of which come highly recommended.
