howdy folks, you'll forgive the odd informality, I got tired of looking in from outside and decided for the first time in what's been a decade-plus - to join a forum once more.
I'm Hyan, and I originally hail from the land of Botts' dots; when the mood strikes me I'll create signs, and I actually collect a ton of 'em. (That is, when the money isn't super tight, of course.)
I don't know how brief or how long this has to be, but yeah. That's about all I do with my day if I'm not ... trying to keep my household together.

Botts' dots came from Minnesota? Learn something new every day.

Anyway, welcome from southwest Indiana! I grew up and went to grad school in your neighbor to the south.

the land of Botts' dots is California, and all peculiar things Caltrans

Welcome from a fellow Midwesterner!  I'm from Chicagoland but Minnesota fascinates me.  My US75 photo comes from Minnesota, albeit the southwestern corner at Hinckley...

How did THAT get all the way out there? XD Is that someone's wry joke?

[Edit: Ay, there's the rub. It's where it should be.]

I dip in and out at times. Poring over what sort of sign to make to pass the time.
