This is the official Start of Route 66!
Will Rogers Highway, Main Street of America, The Mother Road – whatever you call U.S. Route 66, the more than 2000 mile highway is the original home of the road trip. This series is dedicated to key landmarks along Historic Route 66. From The Windy City to the Pacific Coast, Route 66 is a wonderful way to explore America. The historic highway runs past once-forgotten monuments, oddball landmarks, awesome natural scenery and honest-to-goodness small town charm. For your caching pleasure, here are some landmarks to make the journey worthwhile!
This is the California Desert and home to many animals. This is their home! Please take care of it while you are visiting. This artwork has 200 caches in it and is over 20 miles in total. Plan your route and make sure you have plenty of water and snacks. Please keep food from rubbing off onto the containers, IE: BBQ chips, Pizza, Squid, to name a few. These attract animals thinking the containers are food and they are carried away. And most of all carry out what you take in, don’t leave anything behind.
There are 2 dirt access roads from the main highway. You can use these roads to get near major portions of the artwork. This is no place for motorhomes. The dirt roads are not friendly to low clearance vehicles. There are soft shoulders on Kelbaker Road and you may get stuck if not careful.
We have placed 3 Ammo Cans with extra logs and containers throughout the trail for any caches that may need some TLC. Use them if needed and please deposit any extras when you leave so others may use them.
All containers are green prescription bottles that are easily removed from a wire hanger. There is no need to pull, tug, bend, or hit it with a big stick. Please do not move containers, this is a long series. There should be enough time to sign the log and replace the container.
We created this Trackable Geo-coin for our Route-66 800 cache series, GC2J17A. For more info feel free to contact us.
The tracking number for this coin is PCV684
