Dear Route 66 Enthusiast:
My name is Kevin Wong and I am a professional travel and landscape photographer who lives in Joshua Tree, California. My business, Mojave Desert Excursions provides guided photo opportunity tours in and near the Mojave National Preserve and I often travel along Route 66 where it passes through the Mojave Desert.
This week, I launched a funding campaign on Kickstarter.com
for a photographic essay book on the lives and faces of those who live on or
near the segment of Route 66 that passes through the Mojave Desert (Ludlow,
Amboy, Cadiz, Chambless, Essex, Goffs and Needles). I will also interview those
that work on the road, the tourists that travel the road, and the passionate
people that preserve and promote Route 66. This project will cost $3,000 and it
was selected by Kickstarter for its project vision and for the quality of reward
gifts. Yes, as a pledge patron you will receive a reward gift for each level of
pledge! There are only 45 days open for this project, so don't delay...please
make a pledge now and send me on the road to record the lives and faces
on "Route 66 - the Mojave Experience". You can make a pledge of $1.00 or more by clicking here. If you find this project inspiring and worthy, please forward this post to your friends and networks. I am open to any and all recommendations and suggestions to this project.

"In the West we lead fast, crammed complex lives. We have so much to do, and to get done, and there is little time to stop and do nothing much. In Africa life is much slower, and the days stretch long, hot and unhurried. This is a great place to rest, relax and reflect. There is lots going on, but you can choose your level of participation and be as busy or as quiet as you like."
If you are interested in experiencing the magic of Africa first-hand, have friends that have been going on about travelling to Africa but never have plucked up the courage to go there, or if you just need to relax, kick off your shoes and 'go with the flow', this project is just for you...
