After lingering gray and gloom in Michigan, we finally experienced a rare February weekend of sunshine and temperatures nearing 60. So this past Saturday, February 18, my hubby Randy and I decided it was time for us to fly.
We often reminisce about the flying Route 66 trip we made last summer for our wedding. It's fun to look back on our adventure and rehash everything we saw and experienced. So it's no wonder that Route 66 once again popped into my head when trying to decide on an aviation day trip. Route 66 starts in Chicago and heads southwest, through much of Illinois. During our trip last summer, our first and only stop in Illinois was Litchfield, which is in the southern part of the state. There are many towns along the northernmost section of Illinois Route 66 that are easily accessible by airplane in less then two hours.
