Not to be pickin' on TUFELHUNDEN, but there are so many photochopped signs in this thread ...

Ben,
I in no way photo-shopped that picture. Seriously. I grew up in Red Bluff and knew that sign was there, I spent a lot of time on hwy 36 near where I took that picture. Took my first MSF course at 15 1/2 within 5 miles of that sign! I live in Southern California now, and on my return trip from Alaska last month I stopped by and took the shot. I'm sure there some Norcal natives here that can vouch for me. I DID NOT photoshop that picture. It is 100% real.

Sorry T, mea culpa. I sure didn't mean to imply that you changed the photo.

Call me a skeptic (and I know its all for fun in this thread anyway), but some of the signs are so obviously modified - whether by photo manipulation or paint on the sign or whatever.

BTW, I need to check out that road!!

Cheers,

Ben

sure

No reason to be sorry... I share the same sentiments on how people photo shop stuff, some times it's so obvious its funny. I'm really fond of that road, and yes... You should check it out sometime if you ever make it out west. I wish I had posted on this thread sooner. When I think about it, I see a lot of funny road signs... And all of them are for real.

I can vouch for that. We were on vacation heading up to see the redwoods. HWY 36 looked like a quicker way to get there. I was driving a supercab long bed Ford PU. Took about 6 hrs and we only saw 3 other vehicles the whole way. Had to make several stops because my wife was getting motion sickness. I loved it!

Himalaya road sign..!

Snapped this whilst in Himalayas last Sept. It gets a serious message across in a light hearted manner, so really makes you think. (Hope you can read the sign) We saw loads of these & they all stopped us in our tracks & made us smile!
