    I always jump off 40 and get on old 66 thru some of the towns like Tucumcari to eat. Love the old diners.

    Nice. I haven’t been out there in at least15 years. Good to see it again.

    Going through Tijeras canyon before 40 existed was a wild ride.

    I remember when I75 ended in ocala..
    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.

    Road trips used to be grand.  Seems like everyone is looking for getting away from the maddening crowds.  Heard the other day there's tremendous interest by the mileneals in camping and the outdoors.  It's one of the top expenditures this segment of the population is making today... Here's a fact.  If you have a special place you enjoy for peace and quiet, you better not tell anyone anywhere. If you do, someone for sure will put it out for the world to run and see.  "If you love it, speak (post) nothing of it."

    Never been out west on land. N.O. LA furthest I've been. DC furthest north.

    You need to make a road trip.

    You need to go out west. Your missing a lot.

    The highway system gave rise to the chain fastfood industry, stores such as Walmart, and chain motels. All of these destroyed privately owned restaurants and cafes and their regional and unique foods plus jobs for waitresses/cooks etc.


    We eat at privately owned restaurants and cafe's all of the time. They seem to be everywhere.

    I'm also in my 50's, and remember, when I was a small kid, my Dad driving us in to downtown Jacksonville to go shopping. It was to go shopping at the big chain retailers like Sears, and JC Penney. Those two stores eventually moved out to the area I lived in, and we stopped going to town. If anything killed downtowns, it was suburbanization of America.

    I was speaking specifically about the demise of small towns.

    Yea, when i was a kid we took our vacation in WV where my grand parents lived, took 41 or 441 all the way it seemed. Took 2 days to get there but we were pulling a camper and usually stopped at a camp ground along the way. I still like to take that route if the interstate is heavy, it takes longer for sure but that's okay. I haven't really done that drive in a long time though and fortunately don't need to use I-75 very often either but, I do hate to see the ever increasing traffic and population growth. I hate Disney world.

    It was a pop-up Starcraft camper, thing was really nice too.

    I have never seen live bones, but I know that they are often used by rich people to decorate the interior.

    I have learned new routes to avoid 75 when next in Florida. Thanks  I forwarded to my brothers and cousins in GA who travel FL often.
