Oh, and to update another facet of this 10-year-old thread, I still have the '05 Vibe. 187,000 miles and still zero major problems. Did have the infamous Tanaka airbag recall, and then a recall on the recall. Did not drive it on this particular trip, though, but it is hitting the road for San Diego in less than a month. The '99 Miata was not so lucky, took a check from insurance for it in '16 following a chain-reaction crash on I-10 that would've cost about 7K to repair.
Thank you for posting the photos and info about the Gillespie Dam Bridge. This is something we may want to include in an upcoming issue of American Road magazine.
Curious about your comment, "It looks like there are places for interpretive signs in two places, but they have not as of yet been installed." I did a little research and came across this:
There was interpretive signage placed at the bridge during the 2011-2012 bridge rehabilitation project. However it has since been stolen.
The text that appeared on the interpretive plaques and photos can be found at: Next Exit History, http://www.nextexithistory.com/explore/historical-sites/historic-gillespie-dam-bridge/

Thank you so much for sharing the interesting history on the Cajon Pass area in California! Many of us do try to imagine what travel was like in the early days of travel when roadways were newly paved. The excerpt from your 1921 travel book certainly provides something to get our imaginations going.

Thank you for the information about the upcoming 2017 Route 66 Association Of Missouri Motor Tour in September. WE would love to hear how the goes and see some photos - so please share here after the event.
Please be share here about your Cajon Pass tour and let us know how it goes. We of course would love a couple photos too!

Mike, Thank you for your account of Death Valley Nat'l. Park and the gorgeous photo. Even if someone isn't an aspiring geologist or earth scientist, your enthusiasm will make all travelers want to add this park to their bucket list!
Well you are giving us a good education on music! Your description of night traveling music is very intriguing—the "Motorcycle Cop" by Power Glove is something we need to look up and listen to. Thanks!
That's 2 we had'nt thought of! Thanks and please add more!
American Road magazine wants your help! We want to put together the ultimate road trip playlist!
What are the “must have” songs for your road trip? Feel free say why too.
We can start it off with: “I’ve Been Everywhere” - by Johnny Cash
This gets a vote from us because of all the places named in the song! The upbeat tune is great for driving too!

I agree, very disappointing that people would do something like that! Glad you enjoyed the article, it's an interesting website.
