The end of the road with Pipes & Sticks on Route 66

Post-shave – an absolute gentleman, character and more importantly a steady hand! Afterwards, we wandered around Angel’s shop and museum. The decor had not changed in 50 years and it became very apparent just how popular this place was when two coach loads of people stopped by. It was only 9 am.

Before we went for breakfast, Willie and I were invited to a trading post along the road called “Historic Seligman Sundries” which boasted Seligman’s only gourmet coffee and had much in the way of memorabilia such as old vintage cars and trucks parked outside. To our surprise, the owners offered us the opportunity to put a sign up for Glasgow on their post which was quite an honour! Once we showed how good our D.I.Y skills were (not), we signed and dated it.

Afterwards, we met up with the rest of the team at the RoadKill Cafe and had one of the best breakfasts of the trip. Their motto is “You Kill It, We Grill It”!

For the journey, it was pedal to the metal (foot to the floor) with a seven-hour journey through the Mohave Dessert to Los Angeles and on to Santa Monica Beach with only a couple of rest stops. Our aim was to catch the sunset which we made with 20 minutes to spare which is no surprise there!
