Ben's 2017 Route 66 Adventure
The Journey Begins
Tuesday, May 2
Depart Decatur AL
The first leg was to Hebron IN, about 540
miles. 75 remained
to the Chicago
kickoff point, and the room would be a lot
cheaper than staying in Chi-town.
Departing Decatur AL
About 3 hours later, as I was turning into the
National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green KY for a planned pit
stop, I noticed that the turn signal was blinking double speed.
That could only mean one thing - a blown bulb. I talked to David
Smith, the head of prepping new Vettes for Museum Delivery. He
showed me how to access the left front turn signal bulb through
the wheel well, and directed me to the nearby AutoZone to get a
replacement bulb. Thanks David!
The arrow points to the access panel hidden in
the darkness of the wheel well. Mission complete in the
AutoZone parking lot. Total time lost, less than 1 hour.
This would prove to be the
ONLY repair needed for the entire trip!
From my room at the Super 8 in Hebron IN.
first night on the road was actually FREE, thanks to my Wyndham Rewards points!
So far, 4 states: AL, TN, KY, IN.
