And don't forget U.S. 50 in virtually all of Nevada.

It's called the "loneliest road in America" for a reason.

Have you checked out the maps for Route 66?

A little bit, I think.


Yes, me too. I took flight lessons a few years ago and logged about twelve hours on a C152...thinking about picking it up again.

I've always been into some forms of transportation. I find modern high-tech stuff more interesting, but sometimes stuff in history is also fascinating.
I used to live near Wellington in New Zealand, and it had everything, including the Cook Strait Ferry terminal, an electrified commuter line, trolley buses, and the cable car.
I've gotten lost on Wikipedia looking up the history of the systems, such as the ferries. I remember going on Arahura multiple times back in the late 80's/early 90's and it is still running today as the workhorse of the fleet.

I like those nifty Italian Vespas. I'm looking into one of them since I find driving much too stressful.

On Interstates 10 and 20 in Texas, the speed limit is 80mph. On I-10, it's between Kerrville (about 50 miles northwest of San Antonio) and the eastern suburbs of El Paso. On I-20, it's between Odessa and its intersection with I-10.

Between 1995 and 1999, Montana had no speed limits on its interstates--you just had to be "reasonable and prudent".
