Title: What road did you leave on and reenter your state when you left it?
Post by: roadman65 on October 18, 2019, 10:37:30 PM
The last time you took a road trip out of state, where did you cross the state line into the neighboring state?  When you returned what road did you use to reenter your home state?

I left Florida on last Sunday using US 221.  I returned on Wednesday via US 231 from Alabama.  I drove over 2500 miles to do a road trip up to Memphis and back.

Last fall I entered Nevada via US 50.  I ended up returning to California via NV 28.

Last weekend on a trip to Elizabeth City and Hertford to see progress on the S-bridge replacement project. Took US-17 both ways across the Virginia / North Carolina border.

The last time I left the state was yesterday.  Drove into Philly via the Ben Franklin Bridge (I-676), exiting at the base onto 5th.  Returning, I took the Walt Whitman, I-76.

A true roadtrip: I-295 across the Delaware Memorial.

A week ago took a road trip from Maryland to Maine and back.  Both leaving Maryland and returning to Maryland was on I-83 (one of the few duplications in my route - I normally do a circular route rather than take the same way both directions)

Haven't been out of the state but once this year with me driving, when I drove up to see the new Portsmouth, Ohio bypass back in the winter. Left Kentucky on KY 10/OH 253 (Jesse Stuart Bridge at the Greenup Dam) and returned on the new Ironton/Russell Bridge.

Only other time was when I took my Amtrak trip to California. Left Kentucky on I-71/I-75 (Brent Spence Bridge) but flew back in to CVG.

Semi-related question: How many times per year would you normally leave your state?

I imagine it varies significantly, ranging from daily in places like the Philly and NYC areas, to maybe only a few times per year for people in the middle of a large state.

I am somewhere in between - far enough away from a state line that crossing one is a significant event, but not crazy; Ontario and parts of PA are well within day trip range. I guess maybe 20 times to Canada and 5-10 times to other states, so around 25-30 total occurrences of leaving NY state per year.

Most years 3 to 6 times, VA-MD and VA-WV.

This year another 14 times so far VA-MD.

These days since I live in Central California only about a dozen times.  When lived in Arizona I would leave the state well over 100 times a year during work travel.

If commuting counts, then it's I-395 both ways yesterday (October 18) via the HOV bridge in both directions.

If commuting doesn't count, then our trip to Toronto in June would be my most recent out-of-state trip. In both directions we used the Capital Beltway, but via different routes—left Virginia via the Woodrow Wilson Bridge on I-95/I-495 (heading to US-50 and the Bay Bridge) and returned via the American Legion Bridge on I-495 (coming from US-219/I-99/US-220/I-68/I-70/I-270).

Not counting the road trip I'm on right now, I left Virginia on I-95 at the NC border, and returned on I-81 at the WV border. That was basically a triangular trip, to Florida and returning via Ohio.

I was out clinching routes in Westchester County last Sunday and dipped into CT a couple times; once via I-84 (well, its exit ramps technically) so I could turn around and photograph the new mile-based exit numbers, and again entering on US 1 before ducking back down to I-95 to return to NY.

As for the last time I spent a significant amount of time out of state (so no dipping in while clinching NY routes that touch the border) would be my trip to the Providence City Meet, entering and leaving MA on I-90.

Last time I went out-of-state on a strictly road-based trip, I went to a friend's house in MD and crossed over on I-495 at the ALB both times.

If it counts, I was also up in Greater Boston for business last week (via plane) and took a short trip with my rental car to Portland, ME that left the state using I-95 both ways.

I just left the state to get lunch (I live a block from the state line).  I left and returned to the state on River Drive/Bernice Rd.

As to the question of how often I leave the state, not every day but nearly daily.

October 1st, heading to a Long Island Ducks Baseball game in Central Islip, NY. That would be I-95 from Greenwich, CT into Port Chester, NY. Couldn't help but notice the reconstruction of the I-95/I-287 interchange on the Port Chester/Rye village/town line. Came back into the Land Of Lamont (CT) in the opposite direction.

I also left Arkansas last weekend for a 3 day weekend for our anniversary (without kids!) on US-71, since I-49 isn't complete in the area until 2022, hopefully.  After staying in downtown KC, MO for a night and doing the Union Station area that night and River Market the next morning via the free streetcar there, did some biking along the Missouri River, then left to stay the next night in Branson, MO and had a wonderful dinner at Landrey's there before waking up the next morning for swimming and the hot tub before checking out and returning home via US-65.

Last time I was both out and back in on I-15. The two times before that, I when I left I was on a road that doesn't even leave the state (from SJC on CASR-87 and from Long Beach Harbor on CASR-1).

I leave the state by road 20-30 times a year: my monthly drives to/from Montréal, and other assorted meetings or errands in the area.  (I live only about 10 miles from the CT-MA line.)

Last time I left Delaware by car I was heading to West Virginia via Maryland and Virginia, on Labor Day weekend, so I took DE-8 into MD-454 and I believe I took the same route back.

The last time I left Oklahoma, it was on I-35 over the Red River bridge into Texas. I returned via the same bridge. In a few weeks I will also likely both leave and return to Oklahoma on I-35, but at the other end, into Kansas.

I usually only leave the state once or twice a year or so, since my job doesn't afford me a lot of travel opportunity.

To get from Illinois to Toronto, Quebec, the Maritimes, and Maine, we crossed the IL/IN border on I-80/94.  We crossed back into Illinois at the same point, but it was pouring rain on the return trip.  Most trips from Chicagoland to points east begin this way.

Leaving PA directly to MD via PA 841/MD 213
But coming back, MD-DE via US 40 and DE-PA using US 202

I did the same trip a few times this summer, and on the trip back, I still used US 40 for MD-DE but DE 7/PA SR 3013 (Chester County) Limestone Rd for DE-PA.

A little late in the season for a PEI trip, eh?

As for me, probably random backroad bridges to/from New Hampshire.  Don't remember offhand, though I think NH/VT 18 may have been one of them.

This was not your usual tourist adventure. Had to wait for completion of the Cornwall Bypass (TCH relocation) in PEI and the Regina Bypass (another TCH relocation) in Saskatchewan, both in mid- to late October. Both provinces tend to wrap up major road projects right around the end of construction season.

I can keep updating this thread, since I leave my state frequently, but I'm beginning to question the point.

Since I live close to the state line, even short shopping and other trips will often take me out of state. So I'm not going to keep updating this thread.

This was not a good year for travel or photography. Outside the Amtrak trip I took with my brother (left Cincinnati by train and returned to Kentucky via plane), the farthest I got home from home was Louisville, twice, for work. So the only photos I got this year were from those two trips.

This year is shaping up to be more of the same. I didn't even visit a Sheetz once this year, and don't see an opportunity to do so again for quite some time.

My most recent time leaving the province was in the middle of January to go to the Detroit Airport (DTW). On the way to Detroit, I crossed through the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel during a heavy rainstorm. On the way home, I crossed on the Ambassador Bridge during a snowstorm :-D. At least the line-ups were very short both ways!

Most recent out-of-state trip, early last fall, was to help a friend who was moving from Scotts Valley, CA to Reno, NV -- but he had previously moved a large portion of his belongings to a storage space in Lodi.  All driving Penske over-the-cab vans (3 total).  Went over CA 12 from Lodi to CA 88 in Lockeford and then up 88 all the way into NV, and finally up US 395 and I-580 into Reno.  Dropped off the vans there and all piled up into his extended-cab Ram for the return trip the next day -- and he wanted to go via the Feather River Canyon, so we re-entered CA on US 395 en route to CA 70 (and then CA 99, I-80, and I-680 back to San Jose).

Living 5 miles from one state, and 20 from another - this happens fairly often.

Last fall, I was between jobs and took a temp job just west of the Cincinnati airport, in Hebron KY.  I live in Cincinnati.  The most direct route is to use I-71/75, and most days I would go to work that way.  Coming home was a different story - sometimes I would use I-275 through Indiana to I-74 or the ferry between Constance KY and Cincinnati.  The 275/74 way was about 10 miles longer, but I could usually go 70-75 the whole way, as opposed to 10-20 on parts of 71/75.   The ferry was probably not a time saver, but much more relaxing.

Because of a group I am in, I still go to Kentucky one evening a week, and, depending on where I am leaving from, and current traffic conditions, I take I-275, I-471, I-71/75, or US-25/42/127.  Coming home later in the evening, I almost always take I-71/75.  It's only 15-20 minutes when there's no traffic.

As far as an out of state road trip, on my most recent trip, I both left and re-entered on I-74.

The nearest grocery store sits just barely on my side of the IN/IL border, with some of the parking lot on the other side.  It's not uncommon for me to cross the state line in the parking lot, park, cross the state line on foot to enter the store, cross again on foot after exiting, and then cross one more time in the parking lot heading home.

One station in AL was selling gas for $1.94, others &2.00-$2.15. Crestview prices were from $2.14 in town to $2.59 at the I 10 FL 85 area, gouge the tourist smh. All in all a near perfect Friday 13.

When we are actually free to leave our states again, it really will be historic and worthy of posting to this thread!

What was the last state you visited before COVID-19 hit?
For me, it was actually the province of Ontario, about 3 weeks ago. Prior to that, I don't think I hit any other US states since PA and Ohio last November.

EDIT: Just remembered the day-trip to Jersey I did at the end of January.

Before the outbreak came, I was doing field visits for work and had a meeting that was way shorter than I'd planned.  So I decided I'd take my lunch break then and took a walk.  Didn't realize that I was so close to the PA border.

So I crossed into PA on foot from DE on PA/DE-82.

Who isn't free to leave their state? Even those who've been placed under "shelter in place" orders (California and Illinois that I know of) are allowing exceptions for outdoor recreation. What's stopping someone from heading to another state?

More work for me (California).  Granted that demand right now is being driven by the virus.  In theory I could easily leave the state at any time provided I had 2-3 days to make it worth it.  I don’t make a habit of saying where I’m going anyways so it shouldn’t bother anyone what remote corner of the world I chose to visit regardless of the circumstance.  That said, what I had planned was traversing the Great Basin Desert before things went nutty lately. Granted what I hade mind was for late April anyways.

That, and the further you are from a state line, the less likely you can just drive there for the sake of driving without overnighting.
Take Laredo, TX as an extreme example: how could you possibly hit any other states from there on a day trip?
In my case, yeah, technically I *could* jump in the car and drive 2 hours to PA just for the sake of it, but it's just not happening at this point.

If I lived that close to a state line, I'd definitely be walking across just to say I did it.
Of course, I live a solid 2 hours from a state line, and in fact Canada is closer than any other state.

I work not far from a county line, but I guess I haven't crossed it much recently. In fact, I'm not sure I've left my home county since early March. March 7th is the last time I definitively remember leaving the county.

On the way to the cemetery, we left Virginia on Washington Boulevard and re-entered on Memorial Avenue; on the way back, reverse those (see map link, although it's not 100% accurate—we made a right on Lincoln Drive and a left on Sherman Drive, but Google Maps won't let you go that way for some reason).

https://www.google.com/maps/dir/38.8839825,-77.0738837/38.8788557,-77.0571933/@38.882302,-77.0680394,16z/data=!4m2!4m1!3e0

There was one day when we drove over Memorial Bridge (again leaving Virginia on Washington Boulevard) and then back over the 14th Street Bridge (I-395) when we decided one of the cars just needed to be driven, but I don't remember whether that was before or after April 14. On our other trip to Arlington Cemetery on Memorial Day, we didn't leave Virginia because I used Route 110 in both directions instead (despite the loop ramp there, they let you make a left onto that ramp as you exit the cemetery).

As far as I can recall, I don't think I've left Virginia since April 14;

I haven't left Kansas since returning from Mexico (via Texas and Oklahoma) on March 21.  In fact, I haven't even been outside Sedgwick and Butler Counties.  My parents, my sister and her husband, several of my close friends—have all taken out-of-state trips during COVID, but not us.

However, this isn't actually due to COVID.  It's pretty common for us to not travel anywhere for several months after our Mexico trip.  The only trip we have on the horizon is a college graduation in Springfield (MO) in October, which probably won't add any new state line crossings for me.  I'm kicking around the idea of taking my sons on a camping trip in Great Sand Dunes N.P. sometime in September, but I haven't even mentioned it to anyone yet.  If that does come to fruition, I'll probably add the following state line crossings to my list:

US-160 KS/CO, never done it before

In addition, I'd add two that I haven't done in more than 20 years:

I-25 CO/NM
US-56 NM/OK and OK/KS

I haven't left the state in over 9 months.  And can't really see myself doing so for at least another 8 or 9.  I'd like to make a couple trips; I'm just not sure it's safe enough to make it feasible.

Since March 13th (the last day I worked in the office), I have left Massachusetts exactly twice.  First time was on Friday, June 19th, when I went up to Derry NH for a dentist appointment and a haircut (both my dentist and stylist are long time family friends, which is why I trek up to New Hampshire for those tasks).  On that trip, I left and re-entered the state on I-93.  Second time was on Sunday, July 19th, when I went down to Naragansett RI to spend the day with my brother and his wife.  On that trip I left and re-entered the state on I-95.

Not counting going over to Northern Kentucky which is several times a month on my own vehicle, and not counting driving I-471 to I-275 and return while driving a bus my last time out of the state was out on US 30 and return on I-74. It was my first time on that part US 30 in late July. Indiana is a great daytrip from here.

My last long road trip took me to Toronto and the Adirondacks.  I left Kansas via I-35 in Kansas City and returned via SR 171 east of Pittsburg.

Other recent unusual pairings of exit/re-entry points include US 281 near Hardtner/K-23 south of Meade (part of a trip to Greer County, Texas) and US 36 near St. Joseph/I-35 in Kansas City (part of a Wisconsin trip).  But because the bulk of my recent long-distance car travel has been to states east of the frontier tier, I have tended to leave and return via I-35 either to the south or to the northeast.

Drove to Ohio today for a funeral tomorrow. Left Virginia on VA-55/US-48 en route to Corridor H.

Have not yet decided on the route home on Sunday other than that it won’t be Corridor H because we’re making another stop in Northeast Ohio en route and Corridor H would be too far out of the way. I’ll take the opportunity to knock off my last remaining piece of the eastern I-76 from Akron to the Ohio Turnpike, and beyond that who knows. I’m thinking about the new piece of US-219 near Somerset. If we do that, I might just take the boring old I-70 to I-270 to the Beltway into Virginia for lack of any better ideas.

OK, in spite of what I said above, as we came down the new US-219 today, we both said we had no desire to take I-70 and I-270, so Ms1995hoo said to take Corridor H. She didn’t realize that meant taking two-lane US-219 south to Thomas to connect, but if she wanted me to take Corridor H, who am I to argue?!   :biggrin: Only downside was that the segment from Wardensville to I-81 was very slow due to some doofus who was content to do 40 mph. Nobody seemed to want to pass him, so I wound up passing as many as seven cars at a time. My wife didn’t like that—she seems not to like passing on two-lane roads. My feeling is, why else would they have passing zones?

Just got back from a camping trip with my boys on Friday.

We left Kansas on Stanton County RD 12 (becomes CO-116) on Monday, 28-SEP-2020.  It's a county road with no lane markings (at least at the time I drove it), signed at 65 mph.

We re-entered Kansas on US-56 at Elkhart on Thursday, 01-OCT-2020.

Wow. Just by quick count, I've been more than one county away from my home county on seven separate occasions since the start of the pandemic. Five of those were day trips, the other two were overnight.

However, I only just last weekend drove through Buffalo for the first time since the pandemic hit. That stretch from early March until now was definitely, hands-down, the longest stretch of time that I've gone in my lifetime without visiting Erie County. Under normal circumstances I'd visit or pass through at least once or twice a month.

I live in Colorado, my last 4 big road trips, all since the pandemic started:

May - trip to Wyoming.  Left Colorado on US-85, into Wyoming.  Re-entered on I-25 from Wyoming.

August - trip to Michigan, Ohio & Kentucky.  Left Colorado on I-76, into Nebraska.  Re-entered on K-96 from Kansas.

September - trip to SoCal.  Left Colorado on US-285, into New Mexico.  Re-entered on US-40 from Utah.

December - trip to Michigan.  Left Colorado on I-76, into Nebraska.  Re-entered on US-34 from Nebraska.

Good for you!  All four trips entered/exited on different routes.  That's a true roadgeek, there.   :nod:

Not technically - I exited Colorado on I-76 twice.  But yes, I try to take different routes for different trips.

The Eastern Plains of Colorado are what they are.  Pretty in their own way, but usually I just want to get beyond them.  I-76 serves it purpose on that front.

Last week, my wife wanted to run errands before a doctor's appointment.  We were very early and needed to kill time.  So, we left Connecticut for the first time since last March, driving to I-84 Exit 1 in Massachusetts, and then turning around and going back to her appointment.

Side note:  VMS for eastbound traffic on I-84 just over the state line cautions about exit numbers changing soon.

US-61/151 to and from Iowa.
My drought of leaving Wisconsin by road is mercifully over after 23 months (I posted this in October but the trip in question was in March). My new answer is I-39/90 to and from Illinois. It wasn't a grand road trip, just to and from O'Hare, but it did feel good to get out and travel some less familiar roads. The ongoing improvments to I-39/90 through Janesville are looking nice. I also picked up the easy clinch of I-190 in Illinois.

Since I was last on the forum, I left and re-entered Kansas twice each, on I-35 all four times.  That may seem rather boring, but both trips were 700 miles each way, to the other side of Texas.



22-JUN-2021 through 24-JUN-2021 — to the border town of Del Rio, TX

This was to help my best friend move storage units from Wichita.  He and his family are preparing to return to the mission field in Mexico shortly, after having had their third child here in Wichita.  They've been renting two storage units in Wichita, which is 1050 miles from where they live in Mexico.  This move will allow them to vacate one of the storage units here, and have half their stateside belongings only 350 miles away from home instead.  We pulled a U-Haul trailer one-way behind his Pathfinder.  He did all the driving southbound (it was his rental trailer, after all), and I did about 300 miles of the driving northbound.

(https://i.imgur.com/XfUZeKG.jpg)

Interestingly, we left Wichita immediately after my eldest son boarded a charter bus with the church youth group, bound for camp near Rocksprings, TX.  After our 700-mile trip, we ended up being just 70 miles (as the crow flied) from my son.  The camp is located down eight miles of unpaved road, so they recommend following the bus in a chase vehicle.  Our youth pastor therefore rented a car in a town near Rocksprings to follow behind the bus.  He hit a deer with it on the way back.  Oops.

Comments:

I told my friend ahead of time to contact K-Tag and update the axle count on his tag, in order to avoid U-Haul being charged for toll violations in Kansas and Oklahoma, and therewith the potential for U-Haul billing him for the same.  As I kind of expected, he put off looking into it until the last minute, didn't see a way to do it online, and basically said Oh well at that point.  All I can say is that I'm glad it's not my bank account.

I-44 through central OKC sucks.  I don't know why so many people love it.  It's twisty, it has wonky exits, and it's been under construction forever now.  Glad I wasn't driving that stretch.  I always go I-35 to I-40 to I-44 instead.

A lot of the BGSes along I-44 on the south side of OKC are really faded, and I don't remember them being that way just 1½ years ago.  What happened?  It's gotten to the point that you can barely even read a couple of them.

Some parts of US-277 in northern Texas are getting kind of beat up, although road construction seems to be handling some of the worst parts.  I'll still take it over I-35 through Texas any day, though.

What genius decided to make US-277 four lanes all the way from Wichita Falls to Abilene, but then leave this tiny little two-lane bit (https://goo.gl/maps/z3PoyDruXRnSeAEQ9) on the southbound lanes through the junction north of Anson?

Driving 700 miles with overdrive disengaged makes for some crappy gas mileage.  Much happier after we dropped off the trailer and returned north with a nearly empty vehicle.

After filling up the storage unit in Del Rio, we took this scenic route (https://goo.gl/maps/jDqNjapRaLadDDKc7) up through the hills.  It was fantastic!  (Google Maps' estimated time is really optimistic.  There was a lot of 35 mph driving.)  Of course, you know you're in for a treat when you encounter this sign (https://goo.gl/maps/HfTwzbGp4QnPo2BZ8).  We stopped at Baker's Crossing to take in the scenery.

Final thought:  The Braum's restaurant in Chickasha (OK) is the redneck center of the universe.



30-JUN-2021 through 05-JUL-2021 — to the gulf town of Galveston, TX

This was a family vacation, my family of five plus my parents.  We did the drive with our Pathfinder (with rooftop cargo box on top) leading and my parents' car following behind.  In 2014, I swore to never drive through Dallas–Fort Worth again, and I made it this long before needing to.  Was I looking forward to driving through both Dallas and Houston on the same day?  NO!  But you do what you have to do, I suppose.

I did all the driving this time, except for the southbound stretch from Edmond (OK) to Gainesville (TX).  I find it's a lot easier to stay awake and alert when there's someone else following my own vehicle.

(https://i.imgur.com/TzcPjjO.jpg)

Comments...

My mom complained during a recent trip to Kansas City that I was leading at 5 mph over the limit, and she's only comfortable at about 3 or 4 mph over the limit.  This time, I drove what I though was 3 mph over the limit, but her speedometer showed we were going 1 mph under.  And she made a comment about that too.  Geez, I can't handle such a narrow range of acceptable speeds!  Whatever...

Does the signal setup shown below seem like a bad idea to anyone else?  Drove through this last Wednesday.

(https://i.imgur.com/6LNaEjG.jpg)

I made the best of Dallas by taking this route (https://goo.gl/maps/qxFrejdXEVdj6XQz9)—I-35E to the PGBT to I-20 to I-35E to US-287.  It wasn't that bad, really, except that my car was hit heading back northbound.  On I-35E in Lewisville, some guy was hot-dogging, changing multiple lanes, and bumped the right corner of our rear bumper.  We heard the knock, then felt the car jiggle.  Both he and I slowed down, I exited the highway to check out the damage, and the other driver just kept on driving.  Hit and run.  Fortunately, there was practically zero damage to our car, just a scratch, not even a dent.  My wife had taken a picture of the other guy's license plate, but I didn't bother to report it, considering nothing really happened to our car.  The Lord really protected us, considering what might have happened!  But suffice to say that I haven't exactly warmed up to driving through Dallas now.

This was my first time ever driving on I-45, my first time driving in Houston.  And we hit Houston at the afternoon rush hour.  Good heavens!  All the way from Conroe to Beltway 8, traffic was thick and slow and stressful.  And that's with at least four lanes to work with!  Beltway 8 /slash/ the Sam Houston Tollway had some parts under construction, and it had its own bad traffic to deal with.  At long last, we finally reached I-45 to Galveston, and there was road construction plus the aftermath of multiple wrecks to deal with.  Man, that last driving stretch from Huntsville to Galveston was more stressful than all the rest of the drive put together!  Yeesh...  We had gained about 20 to 30 minutes on my timetable, and then we lost it all in about 100 miles.

The Sam Houston Ship Channel Bridge is seriously HIGH!  Drive up, up, up, up.  It made me a little nervous being so far up.  And to think, they're in the process of replacing it in order to make even MORE room underneath!

Driving on Galveston Island is quite different, with cars sharing the road with golf carts all over the place.

Northbound, we hit pouring rain and standing water on I-45 between Galveston and Houston, hard enough to require slowing down to 50 mph.  Houston traffic was fine early in the morning of July 5.  Dallas wasn't even su-u-u-u-uper terrible, except for the whole getting hit thing.

What really sucked, though, was holiday traffic funneling through the one-lane sections of road construction in Oklahoma.  It was bad enough at Pauls Valley, that we even got off the Interstate and deviated on OK-19 and OK-74 (https://goo.gl/maps/HnMup9pszBXmonWb6).  As I type this, in fact, that deviation is still the route Google Maps recommends.  We stopped for a potty break before getting back on the Interstate, and then we were only about one or two minutes behind the traffic we'd left behind (as estimated by passing some of the same vehicles a second time).  So, if our break was 15 minutes, then we really ended up saving more than 12 minutes by taking the two-laners.

Oklahoma has not gotten rid of the "STATE LAW / MERGE NOW" signs.  I saw probably ten of them.  However, I did see one instance of their implementing the zipper merge.  They used a portable VMS to say "TAKE TURNS AT MERGE POINT".  Traffic was so terrible, though, that I really have no idea how it compared.

When there's a lane closure up ahead, why do drivers all get into the right lane way early, when they haven't even yet encountered a sign telling them which lane is closed?  Why do they all assume it isn't the right lane that's closing?

When I was in junior high, I wrote something terrible about Oklahoma in school.  Like, so bad I won't even tell you what it was.  Because of that incident, my parents made me write a research paper about the history of Oklahoma on my own time.  When we arrived in Blackwell for supper on Monday, my dad told me he owed me an apology—because Oklahoma deserved it!  That comment was based on the pavement condition and traffic nightmares we encountered.



No further travel plans so far.

Most recently, US 421. I checked out Mountain City to hopefully find some picture frames/local paintings at antique stores, which was successful.

I rather enjoy the drive between Boone and Mountain City. But Mountain City and Bristol? No, thanks. Did it once and don't ever plan to again.

Best route from Bristol to Boone is via Abingdon, US 58, and TN/VA 91 to Mountain City, then 421.

According to Google Maps, that route is quicker as well. Not surprising considering how haggard that stretch of 421 looks.

I plan to check the Tri-Cities out sometime soon and I may as well check that stretch out anyway, it couldn't possibly kill me. Other sites to visit on my laundry list for this area, out-of-state include the Bridle Creek Bridge, Burkes Garden, and since I'm so close I want to clinch a few counties in Eastern Kentucky. It's about six hours round-trip from me but I've made runs longer than that before in a day. I've also been wanting to check out old coal towns like Matewan and Grundy. Distance was a problem where I used to be but it's a lot more within reach now. That whole area has always intrigued me.

If you want to check out old coal towns, I'd eschew Grundy (and Matewan, too) in favor of the US 52 corridor, especially between Bluefield and Welch. I'm unfamiliar with the Bridle Creek Bridge so I googled it; it appears to be some sort of low-water bridge near Mouth of Wilson. Burkes Garden is being discussed on another thread. That area is pretty familiar to me (I'm about three hours from Bristol and Kingsport) so holler if you want any travel tips.

Actually, no he didn't, since this thread is about entering and leaving your home state. He lives in Ohio, so the pertinent crossings are where he left Ohio (into WV) and where he re-entered Ohio (from PA). The WV-PA crossing is irrelevant for purposes of this thread.

It's like my trip where I left Kentucky via the bridge at Ashland into Ohio, and re-entered Kentucky via WV 37/KY 23. Or when I left Kentucky via the Ironton-Russell bridge into Ohio, and returned to Kentucky via VA/KY 160 from Virginia. I had the OH/WV, WV/VA, and VA/TN, and TN/VA crossings in between.

I was in Pittsburgh about 3-4 weeks ago and took US-30 most of the way across Ohio which was pretty nice actually. I was shunpiking so I didn't want to use the toll roads. It was nice to be able to bypass the Cleveland area because shunpiking to Pittsburgh from where I live involves going right into Cleveland but I was heading out to clinch the rest of Ohio and take a different route.

I actually wanted to use the Ohio Turnpike, just to have a taste of what it's like driving on my state's toll road for the first time, which is why I took I-76/I-71 the way home. Also, it wasn't a bad option from where we started in Pittsburgh (Cranberry Township).

Honestly I could have told ya what it's like, just like any other Interstate basically going across boring farm fields. I'm not sure where exactly you were heading to so I put Cincinnati in as the destination and it says it's only 19 miles longer and 15 minutes more time to take the route that you took compared to the fastest route between Cranberry Township and Cincinnati. Even taking that route how much of the Ohio Turnpike did you experience?

I'm presuming on his eastward trip to PGH, he exited the interstate system at Cambridge and took US 22 over to Steubenville. I've done that twice, once in each direction. The first time was westbound, and I remembered it as being a long and agonizing slog once the improved route ran out. But I also hadn't slept well the night before and was yawning the whole way. So I did it eastbound a few years ago traveling from Columbus to the Ohio River valley, opting for US 22 over staying on I-70 and then taking OH 7 north. (I-70 to I-77 to the US 22 exit). The second trip wasn't as bad as I remembered the first trip being. It was an interesting drive.

Nah I avoid using I-70 completely. Did I-71->OH 315->I-670->I-270->OH 161->OH 16->US 36->US 250->US 22. OH 161/16 is mostly 4 lane, and so is US 36 west of I-77. It was a pretty nice drive as there's very little truck traffic east of Newark. Also, I used I-70 east of Columbus way too many times (on various trips to NYC and DC), and am bored of it.

From this last trip:
VA/WV: VA 84/WV 84

The state line in that area is interesting. The first time I was in the area, in 2002, I was driving up WV 92 and made runs to the state line on both WV 39 and WV 84 to get End sign photos for the old State-Ends site. (I've since driven westbound on VA 39 to cross the state line). WV 92 seems to run along a fairly level plateau of sorts, and the state line is at the top of a precipice, so to speak. Immediately after you cross the state line going east on both routes, you start descending a mountain.

Compare that to other crossings, such as I-64, US 250, and US 33, where you climb a mountain on both sides of the state line.

Heh, your experience with that route is the opposite of mine. I grew up in SLC and had family in Denver, so we'd drive there on occasion. Every time we took the Wyoming route, we'd do 80 all the way to Cheyenne before turning south on 25, simply because it was all interstate and that's what we'd always done. In the pre-Google era, how was one to know 287 was faster?

My parents were shocked to learn 287 is in fact a faster way between Laramie and Fort Collins. I just drove that route for the first time a month ago.

Either FL 85N or US 331N.
You're not sure?
:-D^
I thought those were the only two hwys nearby to drive to AL . However checking Google Maps I see there are 3 additional hwys to AL, Okaloosa County Hwys 85A, 6 & 393. I thought 393 deadended at FL 85 but I see it continues as Robinson Rd into AL tho its not signed 393 except on Google Maps. There are many dirt roads that cross to AL also altho some of those might require 4WD that I dont have.
I guess I'll go exploring Sunday, I'll take pix if anything is noteworthy<doubtful

Two most recent trips were both into TN this month:

Sep 12: Left, re-entered on US 321. Took a day trip to Watauga Lake with a few people.

Yesterday: Left on US 421, re-entered on US 321. Went to Johnson City to get my phone camera fixed (and I have to go back because they ordered the wrong part...) and Elizabethton to see a friend.

From Boone to Johnson City, entering Tennessee on 421? What route did you take past Mountain City?

I've said before that my go-to route to Boone is to take US 23 and Alternate US 58 to Abingdon, then US 58 to Damascus, then VA/TN 91 to Mountain City.  But that seems a bit out of the way if you're going as far south as Johnson City, and I have no desire to cross the mountain between Mountain City and Bristol ever again. I've driven 321 between Boone and Hampton once, and while it wasn't a picnic, I liked it better than 421.

I've driven 321 between Boone and Hampton once, and while it wasn't a picnic, I liked it better than 421.

I took 421 out of Boone, headed west on SR 67 at Mountain City, then on to 321/19E for the final stretch to Johnson City. SR 67 is a more scenic alternative to taking 321 all the way to the Tri-Cities (with a lot more opportunities to pass slow traffic) and only adds 5-10 minutes of extra travel time, although if you drive faster it's likely on par with or edges out 321, especially considering you can speed on 421 + 67 but can't really speed on 321.

I actually think I prefer it to 321 due to the passing opportunities - 321 is very curvy between Vilas and Hampton, so you only get a handful of risky passing zones to try your luck with, I'd never mess with them at night. I don't mind the curves themselves but it's getting stuck behind tourists/slow drivers that makes me go bonkers. SR 67 has a generous amount of climbing lanes and passing zones though, with traffic light enough that you have good opportunities to use them, and the views are a lot more impressive. I really want to drive it when the leaves change.

My route looked something like this: https://prnt.sc/1t9cgdp (https://prnt.sc/1t9cgdp)

Took US-412 out of Arkansas week before last, but didn't re-enter by road.  Took a one-way road trip with my brother and his 1996 4Runner back to his condo 4 blocks from the Space Needle in Seattle.  It was an almost 3000 mile trip that was on Interstate highways less than half the time.

Took US-412 west until it ended on I-25 in NM.  Popped over through Cimarron Canyon to Angel Fire, Taos, and Santa Fe before running I-25 up to Colorado Springs, actually Manitou Springs specifically.  Did Garden of the Gods, Glen Eyrie and the Pikes Peak cog rail, then took US-24 all the way through Leadville and Minturn until taking I-70 to Grand Junction.  Then popped down to Moab via a BLM semi-paved road to UT-128 for the most breaktaking stretch of the whole trip.  Took US-191 up through UT until US-6, then US-6 into the Salt Lake metro.  Took I-15 through the most horrid stretch of travel for the whole trip, and it wasn't even close to rush hour!  That metro seems to carry on FOREVER.  Took US-89 to Logan, UT, then UT-30 back to I-15.  Continued on I-15 up to Pocatello, then Idaho Falls.  Left Idaho Falls and drove onward on I-15 next to Butte, then I-90 to Missoula, MT.  Took US-93N/MT/ID-200W to Sandpoint, ID, then US-95S to Coeur d'Alene.  Finished I-90W to Seattle, did a large amount of walking, including onto the Bainbridge Is. ferry and back, then darted back to NWA as directly as possible through Denver by air a couple days later.  Seattle sure isn't as fun a place as the last several times I visited.  Suffered through some really pushy panhandlers that would try to work you for a block and a half before moving on to the next target.  A lot more tents in the streets, and one tweaker looked like he was humping a car door, but in reality was breaking into it in broad daylight, likely due to the absence of unappreciated and de-funded police.  Sure must grind on the soul to deal with that on a regular basis.  I pray for my brother and am glad he got out for a couple of weeks to get some perspective of normalcy in Arkansas.

Yesterday: Washington Boulevard (VA-27) crossing from Virginia onto Columbia Island in DC, then back into Virginia via Memorial Avenue to enter Arlington Cemetery. Later the same hour, back into DC via Memorial Avenue, then back into Virginia via I-395 over the 14th Street Bridge (there was so much traffic waiting to enter the cemetery that it was easier to go over Memorial Bridge and loop past the Jefferson Memorial than it would have been to continue around Memorial Circle to access I-395 from Columbia Island). Yesterday was Wreaths Across America family passholder day. Unlike last year, they didn't open up the service exit from the cemetery onto Columbia Pike to expedite traffic flow leaving the cemetery, which meant it took 20 minutes to half an hour to go from the cemetery end of Memorial Avenue to Memorial Bridge.

That was indeed the source of my guess.

When I lived with my parents in Newark, DE, I was very close to Maryland and not too far from Pennsylvania.  When I got my own place in 2002, I found myself getting in the car and leaving the state spontaneously a lot, especially on weekends.  One of my coping strategies was to take I-95 north to US 322, then the Commodore Barry across to I-295 south.  I found the relatively rural stretch of 295 in New Jersey refreshing.  Then I'd take the Delaware Memorial back into Delaware.

I also developed a four-state loop, taking DE 896 north out of Newark, clipping Maryland, then taking PA 896 to PA 841, to US 1, to US 322 to I-295.  My apartment was relatively close to the bridge, just off US 40 right after it splits off of US 13.  (I'd often walk to the McDonald's at Hares Corder.)
