Anything of interest around Scranton, PA?  In terms of state-named interstate shields left or button copy?  I-84/I-380/I-81 area?

I only take pics of good looking signs. Long live non-reflective button copy!

"I get a little tired of being told I'm an insider. I come from Scranton, Pennsylvania. And that's as hard-scrabble a place as you're going to find. I'll show you around sometime and you'll see, it's a hellhole. An absolute jerkwater of a town. You couldn't stand to spend a weekend there." -- Sen. Joe Biden (Jason Sudeikis) on Saturday Night Live

My recollection is that there is a smattering of button copy and state-named shields in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area, but admittedly it's been awhile since I've been there.

If you're willing to drive down to Wilkes-Barre, there's some state named I-81 shields on some of the BGS's on the mainline around exit #165.
