in okla lots of the old road still exists. be warned though,its rough, broken up,very narrow( lots of how shall we say mirror destroying bridges if you meet a oncoming vehicles). most of the route from oklahoma city west roughly follows or is now a service road to I-40. lots of twist and turns as it crosses and recrosses the interstate and it runs through lots of small towns.unfortunately most of the real old time motor courts and things are long gone.but motels/food/fuel in the towns are plentiful.back years ago we did the drive i dont know how many times,but i-40 replaced it,and it simply died overnight.just as a side note,my dad got the second of the two tickets he ever got in his life on i-40 the day before it officialy opened!! he was so happy not to have to drive on the old road ,he couldnt wait any longer!! the last time i was on it was about three years ago on motor cycle. contact the route 66 association for better info. if i were to do it all the way,i believe i would choose to travel by car, and stay in motels.camping prices are high. price of fuel as you get in the more remote areas is quite a bit higher,and i think you could probably save money that way. but it can be done.make sure the rv you get has good tires,and make sure everything is secured before beginning,because it will beat you to pieces.some confusion exists as to the exact route in spots,since it often changed as larger cities grew,but for the most part you can do the entire route.
