Route 66, more than just a road for Sandi Wheaton
There are few places in the world like Route 66. This 2,448 mile stretch represents the quintessential road trip. It is the "Mother Road" - a road that symbolizes the optimism of a bygone era and captures the imagination of young and old alike. Route 66 embodies the freedom and unshakable spirit of the road traveler, and Sandi Wheaton has captured this journey from Chicago to Los Angeles in a Jeep, an Aliner trailer, photographing it from end to end.

By following these simple steps, you'll be able to donate your RV to a suitable and worthy charity in no time.
Lose weight by changing your plate
A new "diet" is finding its way onto our kitchen shelves. One that doesn't require detailed calorie counts, extreme food avoidance, or even complicated rules for pairing. The 9-Inch 'Diet' is not your typical diet book. Peculiarly, it is a book about plates, which makes it readily accessible for everyone, at home in the RV and on the road.
