Glenrio, a real Route 66 ghost town as mentioned in the book: Ghost Towns of Route 66. Located on the Texas/New Mexico border (it's mile marker 0 for Interstate 40), the sign still stands for the First/Last Motel in Texas. Just imagine back in the 30's and 40's with the non-stop traffic pulling into town after a long day on the Texas or New Mexico plains. This must have seemed like an oasis. Just imagine traveling west in 1933 in a Model A with all your belongings in back.
