Ahoy from SW Virginia
« on: July 08, 2017, 01:18:04 AM »

Hi all,

New join currently living near Roanoke, VA. I grew up in Raleigh, NC and spent some time in NYC. The bane of my existence that is I-81 has had a grip on me in one way or another for many years. This website has been in my browser history for well over a decade, and maybe one day my rank will approach "frontage road." Cheers, folks!

It's same since I moved to PA in 2006. I-81 and US 30 have been THE roads in order to go places, or get anywhere outside of town. But welcome from 202 miles north of you!

Start posting about I-81 and that may very well change...

Yeah, I commute between exits 150 and 140 every day on ole' 81. Just last week I made it all the way up to the NYC area and back for the first time in a long and remembered how undersized it is for the current volume of traffic. Nostalgic, but... jeepers.

Thanks for the warm welcomes from everyone... looking forward to getting to know alls you folks  :awesomeface:

Howdy from Dalton, Georgia, which is off of I-75. I have had much experience with Interstate 81 on trips such as those to Snowshoe, West Virginia, and Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
