Tin Can Caravan: Indian Country
Tue. Sept. 25 - Albuquerque to Gallup, NM via Acoma Sky City Pueblo (156 miles)
We depart Albuquerque via Central Avenue and its many Route 66 landmarks. The bus then heads to Acoma Sky City, the oldest continuously inhabited community in North America, and now home to 4,800 tribal members of the Acoma Pueblo and 250 dwellings perched atop a sheer-walled 367 foot sandstone bluff. We then head out to Grants, NM (briefly known as "The Carrot Capital Of The World" in the 1930s). Late afternoon finds us pulling into the neon-bedazzled town of Gallup, NM for an evening show.
This ticket provides detailed travel itinerary along Rte. 66, inclusion in the Tin Can Caravan and priority admission to evening event.
The musicians on this segment of the trip include Fred Eaglesmith Band, Roger Marin, Gordie Tentrees, Bill Poss, Tiff Ginn and Mary Gauthier.
The TIN CAN CARAVAN is an eighteen-day road trip down Historic Route 66, led by the master road warrior himself, Fred Eaglesmith. And where Fred leads, we follow. Fred and his band in their bus... and a motley crew of vans, campers, bikes and cars following, over the twists, turns and history of America's most legendary highway. Come for the whole tour, a week-long stretch, or just a day or two. It's all up to you. At least one show daily -public or private- in every state traversed by Route 66.
This day ticket entitles you to the following:
- The day's itinerary with route directions and venue addresses.
- Access to the Travelling Steam Show Caravan with Bill Poss as Trail Boss. He will be your point of contact for any situations that might arise. His cell number is 512-203-4619. You can choose to travel with Bill's group or strike out on your own Bill will not be taking attendance each day.
- Admission for one person to the evening's music event.
- Details and contact information for the evening's camping location (does not include reservation or camping fees). Please note: neither Bill nor Roots On The Rails are arranging any camping or hotel accommodations for Tin Canner Day Ticket holders. You are responsible for setting up your own accommodations along the route, based on your preferences.
- Roots On the Rails is not arranging Tin Canner admission to any of the attractions along the route unless specifically noted in the day's itinerary. Again, this is to allow you maximum flexibility to set your own itinerary. Because of the size of the bus group, there may be tours, attractions, restaurants and other stops that will not be accessible to Tin Canners during the same time period when the bus is scheduled to be there. We will make note of these restrictions on the daily schedule.
Roots On The Rails is not responsible for responding to any vehicle breakdowns, accidents or other travel snafus along the way. Please make sure that your vehicles are in good working order, that you sign up for road service programs if you feel you will need them and that your vehicle insurance is current. If you choose to drink while on the tour, you are responsible for having a designated driver. Drinking and driving, or driving while impaired, is illegal.
