Love this video -- especially the footage of cars struggling along muddy, unpaved roads. We're located right on Route 66 in Tulsa, and I think we really take it for granted sometimes. We forget how difficult travel was before the advent of good, all-weather roads.

Trailer: Return to the Road. They called it "The Main Street of America." When Martin Milner starred in the television series Route 66, U.S. Highway 66 was the busiest and most famous road in the Unites States.
Thirty years later, Martin Milner (Route 66, Adam-12) hosts this heartwarming return to what remains of Route 66. It's an incredible 2,400 mile trip that winds its way through eight states, hundreds of small towns, and a cast of characters too outlandish and charming to have been made up. These are the real-life people of the highway. In dozens of candid interviews they form a riveting portrait of roadside America and its struggle against the 'franchise blight'.
International award-winning double-length collector's set. Martin Milner, in a 1960 corvette, returns to "The Mother Road" and profiles her people like never before. Return to the Road takes you back to the America of another time... When diners, drive-in movies, and greasy spoons did booming business along the shoulders of two lane highways.
