- I leave for Austin in about 12 hours!!! Woohoo!!!
I’m planning on taking the scenic route south. Instead of taking IH-35 (as they would say in Austin) the entire way, I’m going to take the turnpike (I-44) from Newcastle to Lawton, then south across the river to Wichita Falls, TX.
From there, I’ll take US 281 south until I hit Lampassas and then probably cut to Austin from there.
Also, on the subject of HW Trivia here’s a page that has pictures of the ends of US 281 and also the ends of US HW 62 (aka Main Street, Newcastle, OK) in El Paso, TX and Niagra Falls, NY
See ya next week!
