Romancing the Roadgeek
« on: February 13, 2020, 08:01:54 PM »

Happy Valentineís Eve, everyone!

So, since my partner and I are driving down to Baltimore for the weekend and will be super busy, we exchanged gifts this evening. I was SO thrilled to get this addition to my Route 66 collection (I donít have a trip planned yet because money and time are tight, but itís all culminating for THAT trip).



He also got me a Route 66 guidebook for Christmas - one of the McClanahan guides I donít already have.

So, whatís the best way that YOUR significant others/better halves/spouses/ beloveds romantically got involved in your roadgeekiness, fellow roadgeeks?

My wife usually buys me a road sign ornament every year.  When she goes on trips with friends I usually get a bunch of maps.

I don't have anything to contribute, except to say:  Great thread title!  It's poetic.

Eh, usually just getting to choose the route and any back road detours is enough for me.

Not a big collector of anything.

Regarding road related gifts something that I forgot to mention upthread is that Iíve tried to convince my wife to buy me something from a list of Jake Bear signs.  Thus far she has mostly stuck to map and ornament territory, the usual reasoning for not getting me a sign replica is that she canít keep up with what I have in my sign collection.

Eddy Grant should record a new version of "Romancing The Stone" called "Romancing The Roadgeek."
