Greetings from San Antonio
« on: August 24, 2017, 12:41:02 PM »

Hey y'all.

My name is Ryan, I'm 16, and I live in San Antonio, TX. I joined because I'm very interested in the American numbered highway system, and some of my favorite roads are the thousands of Farm to Market roads in the state of Texas. I generally enjoy roadgeeking in the Texas Hill Country. If I could rule the world for a day, I'd have TxDOT standardize all the county roads and FM/RM/UMs in Texas and make a good database for them. Once I'm on my own and driving I have a goal to drive on every FM road in Texas. I'm really excited to discuss on the forum!

Howdy from a few states east of you! I've been to Texas (DFW, specifically), and it truly is a nice and beautiful place, and the roads rock. I find it fascinating just how many frontage roads Texas has. I'd love to go to Texas more times, for sure. See ya around on the forums!!  :wave:

Welcome from the forums! I'm currently on vacation in Orlando (hence the US 192 avatar) :)
Enjoy Orlando.. I am living back in central Florida.. Lots of construction on the roads in Orlando area

Welcome Ryan!!... I put thousands of miles on my car every year exploring roads. Sometime a trip to see construction across town.. Sometimes just a different route home from work to see whats down the road.. You have a good group of people here with whom to share your enthusiasm for roads.
