Here we go...

Welcome to Electric Route 66! The goal of this site is to promote electric vehicle travel on classic US Highways like Route 66. It is not always easy to hit the open road in an EV; it's a chicken-and-egg sort of problem: how to build infrastructure at small towns and attractions when few EVs are currently visiting, and how to get people to travel in their EVs when limited charging infrastructure can sometimes be an obstacle. The EV revolution is coming, and the classic and historic stops along Route 66 should prepare for it if they want to survive and grow. As an EV owner and Route 66 roadie I want to help them, so they will be around to enjoy for years to come. Now, I just want to make clear that I'm not an expert on electric vehicles. There are two of them in my household, but I have no technical training or any job in the electric vehicle industry. I'm coming at this subject from the perspective of a layman enthusiast. This should help to keep the postings light and
