Route 66, Burma Shave, and GMO Free Billy Williams

Running Route 66 has its ups and downs. On some days the miles come easy, and on others they never seem to end. Sometimes the road signs provide some unique photo opps. Believe me, I was less than pleased to discover that Flagstaff remained 89 miles away between two signs placed ten miles apart. As it turns out, both signs were wrong in our case because we took a long detour to keep us off Interstate 40. (Two or three different locals said we can legally run on freeways in Arizona, but I have an aversion to semi trucks, VWs, and every other projectile traveling at 75 MPH.)

I also have an aversion to GMOs, Turns out that I’m in good company. Bill Williams, the founder of Williams, Arizona, posed for a great GMO Free USA pic.

I’m no poet, but here’s my attempt at a Burma Shave type of poem:

Running Route 66
Takes some time
Enjoy the photos
And don’t fret the rhyme

    These Williams, AZ area folks have got some seriously, SERIOUSLY significant funny bones! LOVE it! A refreshing sight, I’m sure, for a couple of guys pounding the pavement for a GMO free USA. Hope you continue to enjoy every possible moment of this HISTORIC trek!
