Please visit my other two "homes" for a themed continuation of this series. See some perfect accessories for your trip at Olive Shoot Makes Stuff and chuckle reading about traveling mercies at Olive Shoot. Enjoy!

Odd-numbered highways run north to south. Even-numbered highways run east to west. Two-digit interstates are often the most direct routes through a city (i.e. I-95), while three-digit interstates go around the cities. (also true in Jacksonville I-295 goes around)
