Greetings from the Beautiful Ozarks!
« on: August 16, 2019, 06:31:07 PM »

Hello there, I am ozarkman417 and I am the only one who I know who is even close to what would be considered a road geek. I have known about AARoads for a few years now but I haven't made an account here until now (I was like 10 at the time, it was for the best). I have been fascinated by the open road for most of my life and I couldn't wait to get behind the wheel when I got my learner's permit about a month ago. So far I have around ten hours of driving in, out if the required forty in Missouri. My first Interstate drive was on I-70 in Kansas. I have also been looking at the history of different roads and highways in my area using Google Earth & old MODOT highway maps. I am in my second year of high school (It feels SO good not to be a Freshman anymore  :-D ) and I am part of my School's Cross Country team.

Welcome from the state of Georgia!  :wave:

I also love looking at old maps as well as the historic google earth satellite to find out what roads were like historically.

My parents lived in Springfield and I know quite a few folks there from the local SCA/Renaissance group. I don't get to visit the area as much as I used to, though.
