One of the real treats for us is being able to stay in the historic Munger Moss Motel in Lebanon, Missouri.   We’ll be in Lebanon playing for the Route 66 festival as part of our tour, and we’re quite stoked about being able to stay here.

The Munger Moss won the 2006 Business of the Year award from the Route 66 Preservation association, and it’s a well deserved award for them.  Everyone I’ve talked to that has stayed there has had a fabulous stay.

The Munger Moss opened in 1946, and has been maintained in pristine condition with a fabulous neon sign and Route 66 themed rooms.  It promises to be a great stay there!

One of the things we’re wanting to accomplish with this trip across Route 66 is to make connections and new friends.  I was just sent a wonderful website called Couch Surfing.  I especially like the mission statement of this group:  “Participating in making a better world, one couch at a time”.

I’ve recently been reading about some of the old time buskers who worked their way across the country, and the lasting friendships they made in the towns they played in..some of those friendships lasted for the rest of their lives.

This exactly one of the goals of this trip…to meet folks all around Route 66, form friendships, and spread peace and love through music.  I can’t think of any better way to do it than couch surfing!
