    Re: The Interstate Highway System is 50 years old.

    This weekend, I was to fly from Baltimore to Columbus to visit family. Only, I got bumped from my seat by the airline (whose name I won't say, only that it is the directional oppositie of Northeast.) At any rate, I ended up driving from DC to Columbus, and made it in a shade under 6 hours. If I had taken back roads--such as Rt. 40--I'd still be driving back.

    God bless the Interstate system. Also, I-68 through western Maryland and West Virginia is actually a very pretty route, I don't mind driving it at all.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    I like the Interstate only when I'm working Other than that, I love traveling two-lane State Routes, U.S. Routes, and county roads. I live on SR 104 here in Franklin County and unfortunately these types of roads are going the way of the dinosaur around here.

    I didn't care too much for the movie "Cars", but I did like how it made the point of how much you miss by traveling the Interstate system.

    I drove the interstate yesterday from the Bay Area to PDX, 675 miles and 10 hours. You'd never be able to do that on a state road, but then again Highway 5 is only 2 lanes each way and 4 hours straight wind through about 300 miles of mountains and old volcanos.

    Buit I also drove the interstate over the week in the Bay Area and it's brutal, nothing fun about 6 lanes on each side and people passing you on the right going 80.

    But Highway 1 going up the coast was magic and I'd like to do it again very soon... that is a great highway.

    For my money, it's the best drive in the continental US

    Yep and it's even better after you go for a great ride in the foothills, see some wild turkeys and then go to here.
