Hello from the Mt. Rushmore State!
« on: April 15, 2020, 11:55:23 AM »

Hello, people of the AARoads Forums! I am a highway enthusiast from South Dakota interested in Interstate interchange projects, Interstate widenings, and US Highway intersections intrigue me as well. I also really enjoy inventing fictional alignments of highways or new highways. However, I am not very knowledgeable on what is taken into account when road alignments are made, so any information you people could bestow upon me would be greatly appreciated.

This concludes my introduction to this forum.

HAVE A NICE DAY!!!  :colorful: ;-) :) :wave:

I also make my own EDM music if anyone's interested. But, you probably wouldn't like it unless you liked dubstep.

Greetings from the state of Georgia!  :wave:

I, too, love seeing new interchange projects and interstate widenings, as well as drafting ideas for fictional highways.

I am looking forward to seeing you around on the forum.  :nod:

I would be willing to bet that SoDakInterstateEnthusiast is the longest username of an account on this forum. It has twenty-five characters in it.

Excluding usernames that are email address, and not counting spaces as characters, I think it actually might be.
At least, there were none that immediately stood out to me as being longer.

Haven't heard of any of those guys.  Must have been infrequent posters.

Quite likely, yes. I just went to the "members" page and scrolled through looking for noticeably long usernames.
