Basically I, like other drivers have moved around the nation to give their two cents. I am looking for others that have driven roads high on the list in different states for ranking and comparison reasons. I might even make a top roads pdf.
For example comparison of Lime Creek in TX to CA.
Although Hwy 1 is great, I think hwy 245 leading away from sequoia is a better drive (hwy 1 has better scenery). Lime creek near Volente TX has both, but it is not as consistent of a great drive as either.
There should be several factors that rate the drive (1 to 5 scale, 5 best):
Curviness (1= straight shot, 5= 35 mph starts pulling g's)
Traffic restictions (1= tractors on one lane roads, 5= nobody ever goes here, why does this road exist except for us)
scenery (1= Pig Farms, 5= Makes you forget your name it is so beautiful)
facilities (1= need auxilliry fuel system to get here and back or starbucks every mile, somewhere in the balance is a 5)
length of unrestricted driving ( 1= 1-3 miles of fun, 5= Forget the world outside the lines)
Follow up with any comments on the roads pro/cons. Maybe a sentence to describe each categories reasoning, including cautions or speedtraps etc.
The finished product will include sitting relevent sources, aka you.
I am looking mainly for original eyewhitness accounts. Although links to such will be appreciated. Mainly I want comparisons between roads of different states.
HWY 245, (Sequoia, CA): C4 T4 S3 F3 L4
Lime Creek Rd., (Volente, TX): C5 T3 S4 F4 L2
HWY 1, (West Coast, CA): C3 T3 S5 F3 L5
This may be impossible. But still I would like to here from some who have touched many of the roads on this part of the forum.
Any Californians that haven't been here, go now
