Historical Route 66 is tricky. This time the dead end of it brought me to the Bent Tree Inn old hotel converted into a community.
I spent a night in McDonalds which I like for their 24×7 care about traveling people. Big bathroom, WiFi and electric plugs are quarantined. After many times of WiFi disappointments in different places McDonalds seems to be the only place to stop for coffee and food breaks.
University professors Bev and Bob and family bought a few properties around to bring and take care of teenagers whose parents have problems with low. These guys were so enthusiastic to help me with loading my bike and carrying it up to the hi-way because Route 66 has dead end here. We are thinking about hiking the Appalachian Trail with them as a part of their recovery from abusive families.
