Do EPIC Sh*t Road Trip / Route 66: Texas

Route 66 only crosses a small portion of Texas, but that section has a couple of very important stops.  The U-Drop Inn and Tower Station is a much photographed stop along the route, and I have to be honest, I can’t figure out why.  Sure, the pun is funny, but in terms of architecture or […]

Do EPIC Sh*t Road Trip / Route 66 – Missouri and Kansas

The next stretch of Route 66 I traveled down was Missouri and Kansas.  I am including Kansas in this post because there are only 13 miles of Route 66 that cut across a tiny corner, and I drove it the same day I was driving through Missouri.  That little 13 miles has a lot of […]

Do EPIC Sh*t Road Trip / Roadside Oddities: The World’s Largest Wooden Nickel

Do EPIC Sh*t Road Trip / Roadside Oddities: Pioneer Pete the Rooster

In Lincoln, Nebraska, Lee’s Restaurant has been serving up chicken since 1945.  I don’t know if the draw to the restaurant is actually the fried chicken, the live piano player that takes requests, or the roadside giant of a giant rooster that stands outside of the restaurant is the draw, but I personally think the […]
