Hello From New York
« on: August 16, 2018, 05:03:16 PM »

Hello!
I found AARoads while doing research for a personal project.  I'm working on a film about roads, hopefully as many different aspects as possible!  I've always loved roads, but even just scratching the surface here it's clear that I have lots to learn!

Thanks!

Welcome from Michigan, roadfilm! Sounds like a fun personal project! I - and I'm sure others too - would be happy to help provide road knowledge.

Welcome from a fellow New Yorker!
I'm from Rochester, which is almost a different planet to NYC.  ;-)

Several other NY users here on the board; at least two of them have road-related websites you might find useful:

Greetings from northwestern Georgia!  :wave:

The idea of working on a film about roads intrigues me immensely, and I wish you the best of luck with it. That sounds incredibly cool!  :nod:

Even as a very strong roadgeek, I still have a ton of stuff to learn myself, but this forum is a great place indeed to learn more about roads. I am looking forward to seeing you around on the forum.  :nod:

No, I'm not familiar.  Is that another film?

They do road-related videos.
