A high-speed trip on Oatman Road January 3, 2012

No, the driver wasn’t doing anything dangerous. He mounted a video camera on the side of his vehicle, drove that winding stretch of Route 66 from Oatman, Ariz., to the Cool Springs Camp at normal speed, than compressed the 18 minutes of footage to under 5 1/2 minutes.

The video was created by Norman Fisk’s Diamond Valley Productions, which made the “Route 66 Arizona, an American Story” documentary for DVD last year.

Mention of the uniquely American Route 66 evokes adventurous memories in my mind. In the 1950’s and 60’s my family and I traversed the highway from the West coast to New Mexico and back.

We stayed in the Wigwams, saw the faces and dress of the Native Americans and bought turquoise jewelry. Vincent Price, the actor, was a shopper along with us in one tourist site.

It has been a pleasure to see Norman Fisk’s CD about Route 66. I have given copies of it to others.

However…..I will let Fisk make that trip over the Gold Road hill!

We did it almost that fast with Dale Butel & crew in October but we stopped to take a few pictures/videos
