The two RV Gypsies on
Route 66 in Winslow, AZ
October 4, 2022

U.S. Route 66 was originally routed through the city of Winslow, Arizona. A contract to build Interstate 40 as a bypass north of Winslow was awarded at the end of 1977. I-40 replaced U.S. Route 66 in Arizona in its entirety. However, Winslow and many other cities the two RV Gypsies have been in still have Route 66 signs everywhere, and there are still parts of the original Route 66 in several places.

Winslow was named for either Edward F. Winslow, president of St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad, which owned half of the old Atlantic and Pacific Railroad, or Tom Winslow, a prospector who lived in the area.
