As I mentioned in connection with last month's Shreveport meet, I used my "round 2" mob-rule.com account to show how I got to and from the meet:


The ultimate plan is to add to the U.S. map the counties I re-visited since I completed the U.S. counties in July 2010. However, that will take awhile, since I would need to reconstruct my 2010-2017 U.S. travels including multiple cross-country trips, plus add my other 2018 travels (both several day and overnight trips in VA, DC, MD, DE, and PA, and also forthcoming longer-distance trips).

The "round 2" Canada map is complete, but it only covers Canadian travels since my completion of its counties in July 2016, so that was less work.

until today I had a road trip plan for a whole week. It was for waffle house but we ended up exploring southern Bethlehem and stopping in Plumsteadville, PA
Springtown Hill road is extremely scenic.

Map of state roads I have taken pictures for the signs for can be seen here (although four routes ave not been added yet because of their lengths.):

Only thing I have planned right now is a trip up to the Raleigh area in April. If I'm not mistaken, that'll be my first time in North Carolina since I moved back to Georgia in 2011. I already have all of I-85 north of Auburn, AL clinched, so I may look for an alternate way to go. Depending on my exact itinerary (may be visiting family in the area) I might have an opportunity to see how I-42 is progressing.

I got back from this trip yesterday. While I did drive my own car there and back, it was as part of a convoy (this was a group trip), so I stuck with the direct route of I-85 and I-40, though I did divert onto Business 85 through Spartanburg (not previously covered) to avoid construction. As a passenger at the destination, I picked up a few more pieces of I-40, I-440, I-540, US 15/501, US 70, and US 401.

Planning on a family vacation to Hilton Head Island, SC this summer. 2 days to travel down, 5 days in SC, and then 2 days to travel back. Deciding if we should take the clockwise route or the counterclockwise route. Anyone know if US 33, I-77, I-40, or I-75 offers better views coming from one direction or another? Particularly thinking of the mountain views. Open to other fun detours as well.

Did you know that it's possible to travel from San Diego to Seattle using only East/West interstates?

Number of States Visited: 41 (#42 - South Carolina - coming this summer!)

There are two great southbound views on your trip. Unfortunately, you'll have to choose one of them.

I-77 south at Fancy Gap (VA/NC border) is great. So, too, is I-26 eastbound heading from NC toward SC.
