I'll interrupt your regularly-scheduled autoposting...

...for this announcement! I have officially finished my (backwards, according to Route 66 fanatics) journey from Flagstaff to Chicago. I traveled solely on the remaining portions of Route 66 (which is a lot, I was on the interstates very rarely), so it took 7 days of driving to accomplish. Now I have 2 days to drive back!!

I did some tweeting on the way (minimal in later states because I was concentrating more on taking pictures with my camera, rather than my phone), so I have reproduced the appropriate road trip tweets here if anyone would like to see them. I included my travel grievances, since those are just fun.

Please start at the bottom and read up as most recent tweets are on top!
