    Are you into hiking or driving to a scenic spot? So much to see in the pacific northwest. Is Washington State farther west than your thinking of traveling?

      I live in Illinois about 40 miles north of St. Louis. If you get this way there is a Classic Car place off of Interstate 55 at the 41 mile marker that's worth seeing. There are some really nice cars there. Doesn't look like much from the outside. Not much else this way to see though. I wouldn't drive too far out of my way.

          if you were gonna come west from OKC, I highly recomend taking 40 to Gallup NMexico, and head up into Utah to Moab, some really beautiful country there.

          One could go north through to Cheyenne, then on north to I-90 and head back east.

          If you stretch it to the PNW, ie Boise, there's some beautiful country here too, but your gonna have alot of windshield time. OKC is 24 hours windshield time from here, and thats on the route through Utah to Gallup and across 40.

            a sidetrip you would like...

            make your way to Boise, see your cousin, then head north up Highway 95, and make a detour to ride the big tour boat Hells Canyon Adventures runs through the Canyon. Ride through the biggest navigable rapids in the deepest Gorge in North America.

            Hells Canyon Dam to Pittsburgh landing and back is a day trip,

            Wild Sheep and Granite are class 4's, and Waterspout and Rush creek are class 3's...

            that video on the homepage is Wildsheep....

            thats a 36' triple Cummins Diesel boat I think.."Gusto Del Rio"....

                Ive drove by this place a few times. Never stopped but I wanted to. If the inside is even better than the outside then they have quite a few classics. I saw a bunch outside I would like to have.

                    I would recommend the Wind River Range in Wyoming. It's by far my favorite place to visit in the area. You could lose yourself for a good long time there.

                    Oh, and the font works fine.

                        Then whenever someone needs to find out about a possible place to go, someone may have already posted something here and he/she can get more info if they really plan to go.
                        I hit a bunch of Route 66 all over Arizona. From the exploited site seeing route 66 to the old town, ran down pot holed route 66. Route 66 is just plain cool, no matter where you see it. I can't imagine it being any different in other states. Salt Lake City is cool. The Salt Flats will amaze you to see them. Bonneville's a dive, but if you watch something like "The World's Fastest Indian" movie or some shows on the Salt Flats it makes them a lot more interesting.

                              if he gets that far south,[west] Big Bend National Forest is a must see. don't go in the summer though. I've been twice & it's even better now with new roads open.
