I understand what you're talking about, Bill. From about 1976 to 1985, I rode 2 week vacation trips across North America. I can still remember a lot of those roads / routes. One many of those trips, I'd pick a black an white US route number and just stick with it, which makes it easy to remember! Then there is the Trans Canadian Highway which took several trips to get all but the eastern most 400 miles across Nova Scotia, also pretty easy to remember the route! However, there was a lot of randomly picking a road just because - "Hey, that looks like a interesting (route|direction|sight|sign) pick one or two.

One trip coming east through Montana after leaving Glacier Nat'l Park all I can remember is the food stop - "Eats", not the 2-lane road it was on. I'd love to visit that place again, if it still exists. The memory picture of that restaurant off in the distance I have in my head is beyond description.

Now I have an upcoming opportunity to re-run some of those routes and let my bride experience them for the first time. I'm really looking forward to doing just that.
