  1. On our latest trip, we also squeezed in some photos of filming locations - here's the ones I took from Easy Rider, which were all on old alignments of 66 at the Park Moabi exit off I-40, near the Old Trails Arch Bridge (on both sides of the Colorado River), as well as in Flagstaff. I missed one in Bellemont, I'll have to get next time! Until then, here's what I have, all from the opening credits: Easy Rider Filming Locations http://wp.me/p2bBcu-Cl Jennifer

    Vienna, Missouri

    Spring begins today (March 20). What better way to celebrate it than to get out and take a drive on the famous roads and highways of our great country. One such highway of course is Route 66. One namesake town very close to Route 66 is Vienna, Missouri, so it is the subject of this installment of the For Namesake" Blog [1] Vienna, Missouri (32.18692, -91.94904) http://mapjam.com/vienna-missouri Vienna, Missouri is a village of 610 located in Maries County at the Intersection of US Route 63 and Missouri State Route 42. It is the county seat of Maries County and lies 20 miles northwest of Rolla. The nearest university is Missouri University of Science and Technology, formally the University of Missouri-Rolla in Rolla. Famous Route 66 passes by south of Vienna, through the communities of Rolla and St. James. Maries County was organized in March of 1855 and named for the Big and Little Maries Rivers. Vienna was selected as the county seat. It is said that Dr. V.G. Lethem, who was the presiding county judge, had a young women in his family named Vie Anna who had passed away. He desired that the village be given that name to honor her. Commissioner McCord, thinking this unwise, chose instead to name the community after the Austrian Capital, Vienna, a name so similar that even the good Dr. would approve. The post office here dates from 1867 forward, so we can take that as the date of the founding of the village, although it most likely had its beginning earlier. [2] In Vienna you may visit the Maries County Courthouse and the Maries County Historical Society Museum. Dixon has the Blue Jay Farm, Boling Springs Canoe Rentals and the Rocky Edge Bluff Farm. The Capital city of Jefferson City has many attractions including The Art Bazaar, Carnahan Memorial Gardens, Cole County Historical Society Museum, Jefferson Landing State Historical Site, La Maison Conference Center, Lewis & Clark Trailhead Monument, Missouri Governors Mansion, Missouri Highway Patrol Safety Education Center & Museum, Missouri State Capitol, Missouri State Museum, Missouri Veterinary Medical Foundation Museum, Museum of Missouri Military History Rudge Nature Center and Summit Lake Winery. Rolla has a Visitors Center at 1311 Kings Highway. There you may learn about The Centre, Leach Theater, Ozark Actors Theater, Splash Zone, University of Science & Technology Experimental Mine, University of Science & Technology Mineral Museum and other Rolla area attractions. In St. James you may visit the St. James Winery. The Mark Twain National Forest is just southwest of Rolla. Vienna is located close to several conservation areas including Canaan Conservation Area, Painted Rock Conservation Area, Spring Creek Conservation Area, and Woods Memorial Conservation Area. Nearby Lakes include Lake Ozark and Peaceful Valley Lake. State Parks in the region include Ha Ha Tonka State Park, Katy Trail State Park, Lake of the Ozarks State Park and Onondaga Cave State Park.

  4. I just wanted to let everyone know that I have started a new Blog on American Road. It is entitled "For Namesake". It is about cities and towns in America that were inspired by Famous World Cities. With each installment of this blog we will explore towns in our great country that have the same names as famous world cities. Places like Athens, Berlin, Cairo, Dublin, London, Paris, etc. Many of these are along famous highways like Route 66, the Lincoln Highway, Yellowstone Trail, etc., while others are on back country roads that you might otherwise never drive on. So far I have posted an introduction Blog and two towns, Athens, Texas and Florence, Oregon. Many more will follow every week or two. If you can't wait to read about them all (185 or so in total) you can read ahead by going to Amazon or Barnes & Noble and downloading a copy of my Ebook about them "For Namesake, a Travel Book - Places in America Inspired by Famous World Cities". Search for it by my name Rick Etchells. Hope that you all enjoy - I wrote it for all of us that have an urge to wander even if that is only in your armchair with a map and a suitable cool drink alongside. etchr66 (aka Rick Etchells)
  5. My name is Rick Etchells. I love to travel 2 lane highways and read about the history of the towns and cities along the back roads of America. Several years ago now I created the American Road Magazine Index. I maintain and update it with each new issue. The index is now available as a online database that allows you to search for the Magazine articles by Road Name, Route, Topic, Author, Department, etc. As I woud travel the back roads and the famous highways such as Route 66, The Lincoln Highway, Our National Road, etc., I often ran across towns that had the same name as famous world cities, towns such as Athens, Berlin, Cairo, Dublin, London, Paris, etc. I would always wonder how did they get those names and what their history was. I became so intrigued by this that I finally wrote and published a book about them. The book was recently released as an Ebook. It is entitled "For Namesake, a Travel Book - Places in America Inspired by Famous World Cities". It is available for the Kindle and devices with a Kindle app at the following Link: http://www.amazon.com/For-Namesake-Travel-Book-ebook/dp/B00CBM6JFK. It is also available for the Barnes and Noble Nook and devices with a Nook App at : http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/for-namesake-a-travel-book-places-in-america-inspired-by-famous-world-cities-rick-etchells/1115130086?ean=2940016722009 I believe that the towns talked about in the book would be of interest to the readers of American Road so I decided to start this blog to introduce them to my fellow roadies. With each installment we will talk about one of the towns from the book. In total the book talks about 17 Famous World Cities and 185 places in America that have the same names. The list includes: 14 towns named Athens 15 towns named Berlin 07 towns named Cairo 09 towns named Dublin 15 towns named Florence 13 towns named Geneva 17 towns named Georgetown 06 towns named Havana 06 towns, named Lima 09 towns named Lisbon 14 towns named London 05 towns named Madrid 10 towns named Milan 06 towns named Moscow 13 towns named Paris 08 towns named Rome 11 towns named Vienna 08 towns named Warsaw
