Pros: I really enjoyed the scenery shown during the author's flight. Cons: I felt that the author went into way too much psycho-babble about his personal life while filiming the wall of his hotel room. It would have been more tolerable had he talked about this while showing more scenery as he was flying along.

Pros: Very informative and interesting Cons: Screen script could be a little better written. While the DVD was very informative and interesting, it's hardly worth $29.00. Price should be in the $10.00 to $15.00 range.

Pros: As a pilot, and a photographer, I really enjoyed the DVD. Even Mr. Munson's narrative was enjoyable, though the early view of his hotel room - for several minutes - was a little too much. Cons: Could have been even better with some video instead of just still photos. watched and enjoyed then passed it along to a friend who has driven Route 66 for years.

Pros: nice photos, good music Cons: I really thought this was going to be a video, and not just a series of still shots.... not worth the price, One Six Right is 10 times better and $10 cheaper!!!

Pros: Very informational. Cons: From a highschool students point of view, it was a little boaring. I expected an action filled video of fun views and experiences. No offence but its not my favorite video.
