    Sounds like a boatload of fun. Just do your best with the options you have. See if the roadside diners will cook you up omelets in actual butter and eat a lot of bunless burgers and just enjoy yourself. Skip the donuts but don't stress over the ingredient list of the chili. You can undo the damage when you get back to real life.

      That should be fun. Why not put a cooler in your trailer or on the back and shop in grocery stores? If you are staying in campgrounds you can cook meat over the fire and you can bring backpacking cooking gear for boiling water if your space is limited. See Zen Backpacking Stoves - Home of the Alcohol Stove for how to make your own backpacking stove.

        yeah, lots of diner breakfast food. Eggs, bacon, sausage, tomato, avocado. And big fat bacon blue cheese avocado burgers with fried eggs on top. no bun.

          It is a pity to eat at a chain on a trip like that, but Copper River has a blackened tuna salad and they will give you bottles of extra virgin olive oil (Roland brand, which fails some tests Test Results) and balsamic vinegar to dress it yourself.

            You guys and gals have great ideas

            We are not staying in any chain motel and eating only at the vintage diners.

            Let the good times roll

            Maybe see some of you out on the road.

              Have fun passing through my hometown of Pontiac IL! Haha doubt you'd be spending much time there as there's truly nothing to do, however I'm always surprised at the number of tourists we get each year. Met a lovely couple from France once. Have a great trip!

                Make up a bottle of your own salad dressing and carry it in your cooler and then in a purse or tote bag into restaurants. Diners usually have horrible salad dressing.

                  Sweetwater barbeque in St Robert, MO. You won't be disappointed.

                    Check yelp and chowhound. If you can't find a thread specifically for Rt 66, search some of the major cities for recommendations.

                      Taking my chin up bar with me and will be working on the pushups to see if I can get to the 100 pushup level by trips end. Without my weight equipment it should be fun to see how fit I can stay in. Pull ups, pushups, and sprint/walking is the scenario for a month
