Maria Traska passed away in October 2016 after a short battle with an aggressive form of lung cancer. She was the driver of this page and a forthcoming book on Route 66. Her ashes were spread at Schustek Pond (Route 66 and County Line Road in Burr Ridge).
We did not discover the username and password for this page until recently, which is why this notice is so delayed.
Dave Clark has signed on to try to bring the book to completion. As we have time, we’ll continue to update this blog.
