Honestly a bit jealous. Always wanted to something like 'Sickest view in the history of everything ever' in real life. Also why no night shots of downtown LA. Is there anything to see on route 66 or is it only famous because it's their first highway?

Simply forgot to take the camera with me at night :P

I can't imagine doing a whole roadtrip just following route 66. In most places it's been replaced by the regular interstates. The part we did was from Williams Arizona to Lake Havasu city in Cali. That was still the authentic road. Especially the stretch around Oatman was impressive in the sense that you were driving there all by yourself on a visibly old road through pretty cool scenery. It's definitely a different feeling than cruising down the highway. Other than enjoying the drive there's really nothing to do though ;-)
