Route 66 Trivia Tuesday Contest!

By P.C. Zick@PCZick

Win a free copy of Live from the Road in today’s Route 66 Trivia Tuesday Contest.Completion of Route 66 in 1926 signified a direct route from Chicago to L.A. for more than 2,000 miles (some records say 2,200, but I’ve seen 2,400). Along the way, odes to the Mother Road can still be found in the Route 66 Rabbit Farm in southern Illinois and the Will Rogers Memorial Museum in Oklahoma and the Lizard Rodeo Lounge in New Mexico. And there is so much more, much of it seen by the characters in the novel.

Be the first to comment with the correct answers to these three questions and I’ll gift you with a copy of the book on Kindle.

1) Who coined the phrase “Mother Road?”

2) How many states does Route 66 go through?

3) List the states.

That’s it! If you don’t win this week, there’s always next Tuesday!

      Kristi – Thanks for participating. I know that Cyrus Stevens Avery is considered the “father of Route 66” but I can’t find evidence that he coined the phrase “Mother Road.”


  3. John Steinbeck, eight states, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California.

    Cool questions! And I don’t live far from it here in CA!
