Mr: That's a tiny little camper right there, the back opens up and they got a kitchen and storage.
Mrs. A camper? You mean a trailer for camping supplies?"
Mr. No, no, that's a camper, you can sleep inside of it.
Mrs. No way, that is too tiny!Mr. No it's not, I betcha they just got tired and pulled off to rest, I bet there's people sleeping in there right now.
And so it begins, seldom will we make a stop and not have an admirer or two. Literally not a day went by in our two weeks on the road that we didn't have someone strike up a conversation about our teardrop. "What is it? Where did you buy it? Do you really sleep in there?"
After brushing teeth and cleaning up a bit at the truckstop, we finally hop on Route 66 at 9:30 am.
Here is our very first roadside oddity, you see we were quite excited.
Stands 42'4" tall
Weighs 27,500 lbs
We spotted the rock frog! Aunt Nancy, Americana expert and enthusiast, had given us a list of things to look out for. This was one of them, it was a like a scavenger hunt, looking for everything on her list and finding a ton of stuff in between.
Our very first neon stop, the Munger Moss Motel
Our first diner stop, the Bell Restaurant in Lebanon MO. We enjoyed a most satisfying breakfast at 11:30am. Love that ceiling!
Edit: I missed a page in our travel log! More to come from from our adventures on the 11th - I can't believe we did so much all in one day...part 2 of day 2 coming soon.
