Preliminary Rally Description

We plan to camp at the Heart of Oklahoma RV Park in Shawnee, OK. Shawnee, with a population of 31,000, has three museums, five casinos (owned by four tribes), and hosts world, national, and state-wide rodeos year-round. Nearly three dozen hand-painted (by local artists) horses stand proud around town. Nearby, is Oklahoma City (OKC) known for its cowboy culture with its many world class museums, a National Memorial, art galleries, boutiques and vintage shopping. OKC is a can't-miss stop in cowboy country and we won't.

This rally will include activities associated with the imminent Historic Route 66 Centennial. Route 66, which runs through the heart of Oklahoma, was established on November 11, 1926, by the American Association of State Highway Officials. The new highway was 2,400 miles long and wound through eight states, including Oklahoma. It was not completely paved until 12 years after its designation. With the establishment of the interstate highway system, Route 66 (also known as the Mother Road) lost much of its traffic and was decommissioned as a federal highway on June 27, 1985. Oklahoma still has more than 400 drivable miles of Route 66 today. The Oklahoma Route 66 Museum in Clinton offers visitors a personal journey through the history of the nation's most revered highway. Nearby, along Route 66, are the 1930's Route 66 Interpretive Center (Chandler), Round Barn (Arcadia), the 1915 Threatt Filling Station (Luther), Pops 66, including a 66' tall Soda Bottle, and more.

Proposed activities include:
