Here's an interesting game. I will start with a highway and the next person will name a city that the highway runs through. The following person will then name a highway that runs through that city. Then after that, another person will name another city that the highway runs through. Etcetera...

I'll do the first 3 to start off.
Atlanta, GA

(Been out of contact due to traveling south and confuzer problem.)

Just found out one of my "adopted" sons who is here in Harlingen "taking care of me and my heart condition" may have cancer. They are afraid to take a biopsy that the cancer may spread faster so they want him to go to Houston where they have the second best cancer center in the country. How about we head south and west to keep him company (he's 62).

Let's stay on US41 south

Miami is the south/east end of:
US 41

Also, I know I'm nit picking, but the highway is formally known as Florida's Turnpike. (with the possessive) Though I'd guess most people probably do say just Florida Turnpike or the Turnpike.

You shouldn't need a passport to go to the Haskell Free Library as you must go out the door you came in.

Thought it would be cold but right now 72 degrees and cloudy. We need to teach these people how to say "B". As it is, they finish every sentence with "A".

If they do name if after Ted Kennedy, will they dedicate it by driving a plane into Boston harbor?

Boston Logan:
Major General Edward Lawrence Logan led troops in the Spanish-American War and World War I. He was also a lawyer, judge, state lawmaker, and president of a number of charitable institutions.

Now there's a movement underway to rename it for Ted Kennedy.

Since it all happened in one day, we must have flown.

The name changed from the Billings Municipal Airport to Billings Logan Field in 1957, after Dick Logan, the airport manager, died.

What's Boston's Logan claim to fame?

Let's look at the fall foliage on US-3.

Milwaukee, WI

On trips to my grandparents when I was young, I remember being on the stretch of freeway that is both US 41 and I-94 between the Illinois line and the south side of Milwaukee.

(US 41 now stays on 94 much longer than it did then.)

Anyway, among other places, we can visit the Milwaukee County Zoo.

US-50 comes through Colorado, less than 45 miles from me. A lot of accidents happen going up the route along the Arkansas River. Many end up in the river.

From this place, try US-27.
