On the Road to Phoenix – Day 1
August 30th, 2017
We’re on our way to Phoenix! We in this case being Frederick “Freddie” Armond, Heinrich “Fritzy Boy” Fritz, Jess, and myself. The first day was to be our longest drive, going from Hagerstown Maryland to Effingham Illinois, about 640 miles. Better to get the longest drive out of the way first, right?
Because there’s only so much you can say about driving all day, I’ve decided to break things down into a best and worst ranking system. Indiana didn’t fare too well in our rankings, most likely because their awful roads (spoiler alert) gave us a negative initial impression.
PA by Default
Indiana, because I’m sure it would have been awful if it existed
Indiana (a billboard advertising Mount Rushmore “Continue for 1120 miles and make a right!” it said)
Illinois (until getting to Effingham)
Indiana and it’s not even close. I don’t think they know that you can actually repair damaged roads.
Best Welcome Sign:
Ohio! They welcomed us to their state and thanked us for visiting when we left
Indiana. There wasn’t one

The bitey ones
