Largo, Md.

According to the telephone sitting next to me here at the hotel desk, we’re in Largo, Maryland tonight. We left WDW this morning around 9:30 a.m. We drove and drove and drove and drove up Interstate 95, seeing signs like this one:


By the way, there’s something with this sign that the Transportation Engineer in me appreciates very much. Anyone want to venture a guess why this sign is more legible than most?

Anyway, I had hoped to drive all the way home tonight, taking all 21 1/2 hours in one big gulp. It obviously didn’t happen for a couple of reasons: 1. I would have been driving the familiar part of the ride in the middle of the night, increasing my chance of falling asleep at the wheel and 2. Earl and I don’t want to repeat the “driveway full of snow” episode after enjoying such a lovely vacation.

Tomorrow we’ll tackle the potential snowbank in the driveway in the daylight.


  1. Okay, I’ll bite. Because it is positioned so it is surrounded by the sky?

    If you love roads and signage, you need to take a trip to LA and Orange County CA. Holy cow, you’d be in hog heaven!

  2. Hope your travel was safe and sound. Passed Utica on our way home from Toronto this AM and thought of you. Can’t wait to see you again and hear all about the trip. xxxxxs n oooooos…

  3. The lettering is bigger and there are few words on it.

    Actually, the letters are narrower (but the same height) than standard signs. But there’s one other thing about the letters. Now look closely! -J.P.
