Things I decided on an 1860 mile drive

I'm pro-freeway. And I'm anti-pretend-freeway. For instance, the I-5 is good, because it just stays I-5. The 101 at the northern end of California, however, is bad, because it pretends to be a freeway, then, when it's sucked you off into the woods where you have no escape, it has these signs that read "End Freeway," and you're stuck on a little road in the woods sprinkled with 20-40mph turns. It's hard to enjoy the scenery when you're trying to navigate a car that handles like a brick through a winding road with a cliff on one side and large, glowering trees on the other. Down with the ersatz freeway!
