New member in the midwest
« on: October 20, 2017, 09:37:59 AM »

   
Hello. New member here.   
   
I can't claim to be a true road geek but I do have some of the warning signs.   
   
I have always enjoyed road trips. I love road maps. I have a US 71 Missouri shield from the early 70's that has never been in service.

Good to see you, welcome from another Midwesterner!  Here's a big Missouri US71 cutout photo that's one of my favorites out of my collection.

Hello from Wichita!



I do have some of the warning signs.
I have a US 71 Missouri shield   

Hate to break it to you, but that's not a warning sign.  Har har har.

Welcome from Dalton, Georgia, which is home to I-75, US 41, US 76, and more!  :wave:

I have a US 71 Missouri shield from the early 70's that has never been in service.      

That is really cool!! Do you have any pictures of it?

That is a really neat photo - thanks for sharing!  :nod:  :thumbsup:

I love the way that you take your pictures and zoom in on them; they look so polished and nice.

I can take a picture but I don't have a hosting site. It looks like I need to get permission to upload a photo.   
   
I'm looking into it.

Hello from the one and only Rochester NY  :wave:

Nope. There are two.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rochester,_Ulster_County,_New_York

I consider myself somewhat of an expert on the county subdivisions of New York, and I did not know that one existed.

And not to derail this thread...
But I think I'm gonna have to take back what I said about you not being like NE2  :rolleyes:

But in the best way, I imagine!
