I both left and re-entered Maryland on I-95/495 via the Wilson Bridge.
This time (Sunday) I both left and re-entered Maryland on US 222.

My last long road trip took me to Toronto and the Adirondacks.  I left Kansas via I-35 in Kansas City and returned via SR 171 east of Pittsburg.

Other recent unusual pairings of exit/re-entry points include US 281 near Hardtner/K-23 south of Meade (part of a trip to Greer County, Texas) and US 36 near St. Joseph/I-35 in Kansas City (part of a Wisconsin trip).  But because the bulk of my recent long-distance car travel has been to states east of the frontier tier, I have tended to leave and return via I-35 either to the south or to the northeast.

Drove to Ohio today for a funeral tomorrow. Left Virginia on VA-55/US-48 en route to Corridor H.

Have not yet decided on the route home on Sunday other than that it won’t be Corridor H because we’re making another stop in Northeast Ohio en route and Corridor H would be too far out of the way. I’ll take the opportunity to knock off my last remaining piece of the eastern I-76 from Akron to the Ohio Turnpike, and beyond that who knows. I’m thinking about the new piece of US-219 near Somerset. If we do that, I might just take the boring old I-70 to I-270 to the Beltway into Virginia for lack of any better ideas.

OK, in spite of what I said above, as we came down the new US-219 today, we both said we had no desire to take I-70 and I-270, so Ms1995hoo said to take Corridor H. She didn’t realize that meant taking two-lane US-219 south to Thomas to connect, but if she wanted me to take Corridor H, who am I to argue?!   :biggrin: Only downside was that the segment from Wardensville to I-81 was very slow due to some doofus who was content to do 40 mph. Nobody seemed to want to pass him, so I wound up passing as many as seven cars at a time. My wife didn’t like that—she seems not to like passing on two-lane roads. My feeling is, why else would they have passing zones?

Just got back from a camping trip with my boys on Friday.

We left Kansas on Stanton County RD 12 (becomes CO-116) on Monday, 28-SEP-2020.  It's a county road with no lane markings (at least at the time I drove it), signed at 65 mph.

We re-entered Kansas on US-56 at Elkhart on Thursday, 01-OCT-2020.

Did a day trip down to the Allegany Mtns last weekend. Crossed from NY into PA via NY 280/PA 346, which was a first-time crossing for me. Also got a surprise clinch of Warren County, PA, and later crossed back into NY on US 219.

This was the first time I've been more than one county away since March.

Wow. Just by quick count, I've been more than one county away from my home county on seven separate occasions since the start of the pandemic. Five of those were day trips, the other two were overnight.

However, I only just last weekend drove through Buffalo for the first time since the pandemic hit. That stretch from early March until now was definitely, hands-down, the longest stretch of time that I've gone in my lifetime without visiting Erie County. Under normal circumstances I'd visit or pass through at least once or twice a month.

It isn't necessarily pandemic-related for me.  We just hadn't made any travel plans since March.

10/14: Left Ohio by air, crossing the OH/IN line approximately 30,000 feet above Union City.
10/20: Re-entered Ohio from Indiana on US 24.

This difference in the modes of transport gives me an idea for a thread, which I will very soon be posting in the Travel forum.

Back on Saturday, left Ohio for West Virginia via US 35. Back on Tuesday I reentered Ohio, from West Virginia via Oh 833.

Left Texas on US 377 into Oklahoma and returned on I-35. No predetermined destination but ended up taking a spin through Ardmore, around the Turner Falls area, stretched my legs and stared at some wind turbines, and made Stuckey's and Buc-ee's stops on the way home.

I've mentioned this before, but I crossed over the Florida-Georgia Line and back on US 17 during my recent Northeastern Florida photography crusade in October.

This is sad. Have I really not left the state since December of 2019? I've been doing photo excursions around Georgia, so I guess not.

Went from my home at Lawrenceville, GA to Lexington, KY to see my daughter and son-in-law. Left via I-75, taking it all the way up, but returned via US 23-441, having come through Cumberland Gap.

Btw, not too long after re-entering Michigan a doe was standing in the left lane and I slammed into it at 80 mph near MM 12 on NB US-23. That area has woods right up to the freeway.

Went down to Taos two weekends ago through CO159/NM522. The "Colorful Colorado" sign at the border is definitely an upgrade view-wise than the ones you'll see coming from I-25, I-70, or I-76. It's too bad NM doesn't have a "Land of Enchantment" sign at this border spot though :(

When I most recently left the state (a storm chasing excursion), I left on I-40 west and returned on US 62 east.

This afternoon I went out for a ride. I left FL & entered AL on FL 85 then returned to FL on US 331. AL gas is much cheaper than FL by 20-30 cents.
I'm planning on going to Effingham, IL this week to see my new grandbaby named after me, that's right he was named Allniter Brock :-D. Actually he was given both my 1st & middle name, Michael John. Born 10/31, 6lbs, 20"  :clap:
I'm taking Dove Way to Hibiscus Av :spin:, US 90, Okaloosa Co Rd 393, FL 85 AL 55, I 65, I 24, I 57. I have plenty of time I'll stop to checkout Cairo, IL want to get a closer look at the flood gates. Metropolis has the statue of Superman? Not a big S-man fan but something to see? Maybe go to St Louis to see the arch. Any suggestions?
