CARTHAGE, Mo. -- One of the halfway stops on the Mother Road re-opened on Tuesday with a ribbon cutting and nostalgia. Spared from foreclosure and demolition, the Boots Motel is back in business.

Four million cars were rolling off Detroit's assembly lines by the end of World War II. Americans were free and ready to travel. Thousands rolled through the Ozarks on their way to or from the Grand Canyon or southern California's sunny beaches.

Just an added plug for my hometown of Carthage-when traveling through, be sure to stop on Friday or Saturday night and catch a double feature at the original 66 Drive-In theater. But get there early, the line to get in is pretty long!
