I am planning a trip from Barstow, CA to US 95 via old Route 66. Has anyone taken this drive recently? If so, is the road in decent condition? We plan on just boondocking along the way and take a slow ride across.

Thanks for any information.

We recently went from Huntington Beach, CA, by way of Barstow and the I-40 to Albuquerque, NM.

In this stretch, it looked like you would have have to get on and off the 66 and use the I-40 for different stretches, using the I-40 the majority of the way.

When running on Old 66 in California be careful of the railroad crossings. They are the climb up to the track and down after the tracks type.
Have fun on your trip.

Tincup, you'll love it. The road was in great shape a couple years ago when I took it. Especially for as you put it," a slow ride across". I recommend seeing the old Kelso train depot. It's not far out of your way and it's a grand old spectacle. It was abandoned when I saw it but now I think it's a visitor center and museum or something like that. Also, the old Goffs School. It's owned by Dennis Casebier who founded the "Friends of the Mojave Road". He's a historical expert on the area among other things and you can tour the school. Amboy is a big step back in time also. I love stuff like that. Kel.
