Oh my god finally someone else with the same interest. I always been fascinated with them too. I just love them. Looking at business signs. Signs on the road. And all the businesses off of it. I find a fascination with them that no one else does. Other people probably think that's weird that I think about it and find a interest in it.

I love the way they are organized, with odd numbers for north-south routes and even for east-west, at least in the US. I can only tell which direction I'm facing if I know where the nearest freeway is relative to my location.

If you can't afford a GPS thing, you oughtta spend 89 cents for one of those dashboard compasses. I have never gotten around to unpacking my GPS unit because 90 percent of the time all I need to know in order to navigate is what compass direction I am going- which that low tech cheap compass I already have tells me.

There are a bunch of youtubers out there that film freeways and post them. My favorite is FreewayJim. He has an encyclopedic knowledge freeways and music and is a great video editor. While I am not fascinated by freeways, I find these videos very relaxing and stress reducing.

We don't have freeways in Canada, we only have highways.
My mom's GPS measures distance in kilometers, but it refers to highways as freeways. Strange.
