Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

Route 66 to Oatman, Ar.

Oatman was about an hours ride through some scenic desert land. We traveled on the famous Route 66, winding our way through the mountains and desert.
Get Your Kicks!
Main Street Oatman is shared by the Wild Burro's that come down from the hills for the free food that the tourist give them.
Where did the Burros come from?
History on Oatman
After leaving Oatman, we continued on route 66 that took us into the mountains where there are past and present gold mines. The rode was dotted with a lot of abandoned homes and stores, as well as old mine shafts.
The rode was very curvey and there were no guard rails so if you were not paying attention or going too fast, this was your fate.
A view along the way.

You can see the mine openings in the hillside.

Old VW camper, that is expandable foam insulation on the back of the bus, someone was living in this thing.
