things I learned today

Depending on what county you're in, Virginia's interstate highways are marked down to 0.1 mile. That's a marker every 528 feet. I bet Kudrav is behind this, somehow.

Richmond has a major road called "Powhite Parkway". I am not making this up. Po, White, Parkway. Richmond also looks like the sort of town I'd like to explore: lots of railroads, seaport, etc., but probably without the wife.

The southern frontier of the Great Eastern Megalopolis is apparently somewhere around mile-marker 110 on I-95, based on when traffic starts bunching up. This is at least 60 miles south of the DC beltway.
