Dottie Martin has a kinship with Route 66. Her junior and senior high schools in Edwardsville, Ill., were right on the Mother Road. So when it was time for her to drive back to Seattle after her high school reunion, Martin took the long way home, traveling along what's left of America's first transcontinental highway. In San Bernardino County, a longtime wish came true as Martin pulled into the Wigwam Motel for a night in a tepee. "I had never slept in a wigwam," she said of her desire to soak up the nostalgia and kitsch of decades past.

Why do people get such a kick out of Route 66--that stretch of road that brought many a dreamer West? Tom Snyder, author of "The Route 66 Traveler's Guide and Roadside Companion," has a theory: "A lot hasn't changed in the last 30 to 50 years. People who travel the route get a feeling of what this country was--and still is. It's easy to forget that now with our frequent flier programs." You may capture the real or imagined spirit of Route 66 at the "Route 66 Rendezvous" this weekend.
