fitly I will be debuting my latest video next week. It is the culmination of more than 2 years of aerial videography shot all along Route 66 shot mostly by myself and other colleagues. Ever since drones became affordable I wanted to bring this new perspective to my friends of the Route 66 community. Finally after much editing and juggling life’s priorities, we are happy to show the world, the Most Amazing Views of Route 66, an aerial documentary.
Join me January 23rd at 6:30PM in Lebanon Missouri where I will personally explain some of the unique views we have captured. The event is hosted by the Lebanon-Laclede County Route 66 Society. Be there for a meet and greet with myself. The video will be shown here first before it is publicly released. The official press release is below:
“Roamin Rich, will be the guest speaker at the Lebanon-Laclede County Route 66 Society’s annual meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 23 in the Joan True Room of the Lebanon-Laclede County Library.
Roamin Rich, a self-described road warrior and explorer who has traveled the full length of Route 66 many times, will present his video, “Route 66 – A bird’s eye view.”
Through his travels, articles, blog, photos and YouTube channel, Roamin Rich has been “a strong advocate and publicist for any and all things about the community of Route 66 and other old U.S. highways,” according to his website, www.hookedonroute66.com.
“His mission is to appeal to as many people as he can all over the world. He wants to expose the world to the iconic landmarks, people, buildings, historic infrastructure, and the diverse culture that reside along the old U.S. highways all across this great country.”
Roamin Rich, a native of St. Charles, is a board member of the Route 66 Gasconade River Bridge Guardians, the group trying to save the historic Laclede County bridge that closed in December 2014.
Also at the meeting, curator Mark Spangler will give a tour of the library’s Route 66 Museum, which attracts 11,000 to 13,000 visitors a year.
A short business meeting will be held to review Route 66 Society projects for 2016 and what’s coming up for 2017 and to elect board members and officers.
The annual meeting is free and open to the public.”
If you can’t make it to the event, please be sure to stop through on your next adventure and see the great Route 66 exhibit the Library has on display year round. It is one of the best historical Route 66 museums in Missouri.
Special thanks to the Gasconade Guardians, Gary Sosniecki, and other locals of Pulaski and Laclede County.
