However Kerouac did spend some time on Route 6 in the mid-section of the country, so I wonder how prominent the actual road scenes will be in the upcoming movie adaptation of his book starring Kirsten Dunst and Viggo Mortensen to be released later this year. And how fortuitous and coincidental that the movie is coming out right around the time that my travel guide, Stay On Route 6, will be available for purchase! (More news about that - as well as links to Amazon - in upcoming posts).

I'll be keeping tabs on the release date of On the Road and will keep you informed. And, if you're planning your own cross-country trip and want to stay off the Interstates, stay tuned for more information about Stay On Route 6: Your Guide To All 3,652 Miles of Transcontinental US Route 6.
