I knew that was coming! [smiley=laugh.gif]  I'll get a picture of our sign ASAP.

I got to say, I always wondered "what the hell is that sign all about and why is it out there all by itself rather than with mileage signs of other citys along the way".

I've only taken it as far east as Colorado but it was a really nice two lane highway through the backroads of western America and I really, really appreciated it.  If travel time is not that important, I highly recommend this road.  There were actually times when thirty or forty minutes would go by and I'd not see another vehicle.  Makes ya wonder how they did it on horseback.

Just drove out there to take the picture.  They've changed the sign in the two weeks that I've been off work.  It no longer stands alone, now it also has Placerville and South Lake Tahoe on it, too.  

I'll go to my office tomorrow, to download the picture.

WOW, thats action!  Thanks!

Another one of these would be Route 1 from Ft. Kent, ME to Key West, FL...I made it to Caribou, ME on the bike but gave up trying to do the last 40 mi...I have so regretted that decision.

And another Coast to Coast road is I-40  that has a sign in Wilmington, NC that give the mileage to Los Angeles (I think)....I'll have to ride to Wilmington to snap a shot and post and someone in the LA area can get the sign on that end.  Do we have anyone from down south in Calif?    [smiley=nixweiss.gif]    spyder

Spyder, I used to live in Wilmington but don't recall the sign.  I'll look forward to the photo but can't say I envy you having to ride that long, flat, straight stretch of interstate highway to snap it.

If it's like the sign here in Sacramento, it'll be within 1/8 mile of the end of Hwy. 50.
