    Clarification

    For any interested in visiting Point Abbaye, the beginning point is L'Anse. When I was up there in October 2013 for the first and only time since 1982, there were some signs, but it'd be a good idea...
  3. Sticky: Trucker name for I-95

    Back in the day, truckers called I-95 from about Richmond, VA up to Boston, MA the "Ho Chi Minh Trail". Just a constant battle 24/7/365. I avoid it like the plague.

    Got to love the Yoo P!

    In another life, over 32 years ago, I spent the summers of 1981 and 1982 in the town of Crystal Falls, MI. I supervised a large crew of geologists and technicians working essentially the entire UP...

    Old stretch of I-40

    Linda,

    That particular stretch of I-40, in particular from about Newport, TN through to Asheville, NC, is one of the older segments of Interstate highway. I will speculate some of the curves are...

    Shawny,

    I imagine you're well aware that the "Coastal Route" so well-described by AZ Buck allows far, far fewer views of the coast than does a route such as the Pacific Coast Highway. But one of...

    Good to know

    The last and only time I passed through that fair city, my truck's A/C wasn't working and my buddy and I rolled up the windows for extra security. Glad to hear it's better now.

    Maybe I'll still...

  10. Hot Springs, SD to Wendover, NV

    Unless I'm missing something important, the drive from Hot Springs, SD to Wendover, NV is not all I-80. Depending on the route chosen, perhaps half or 2/3 would be. Very long day in the saddle,...

    Us 93

    Brigid and gang,

    I've had the pleasure of driving all of US 93 from Glacier to Wells, NV, excepting a short segment from Twin Falls to Arco, ID. It's a great route.

    There is one major pass...
  15. Help yourself

    If you were to do that, you'd probably want to drop down I-77 to US 421 to reach Boone, a place near to my heart in that my alma mater is there, Appalachian State U. You will definitely have an...

    I concur with glc here. MB back to I-95 and all the way up to the Balto 'burbs is a long day by any measure. I run pretty hard and stop pretty little, and about the best I can do from my north side...
  17. That's the route

    Maestro,

    Johnson City is a nice enough town and a college town (East Tennessee State U), but is not high on the list of tourist or traveler destinations, or so I think. That said, I have a...
  18. A "bridge too far"?

    Hello Maestro,

    Like AZ Buck, the Biltmore Estate isn't an attraction which interests me, so I can't speak to the value of including it in your plans. If you do, however, I can offer a suggestion...

    The Superior shoreline

    From Pictured Rocks I'd be most tempted to pass through Marquette and drive along the lake up to Big Bay for a close-up look at the Huron Mountains. From there I'd head to Houghton and on up the...
