    I hope people don't take my comments the wrong way either. Oklahoma plains have a certain unique beauty to them as well. I just didn't feel like I needed to struggle through 2+ days of laser straight dusty road with near impassable mud traps to get the gist of it; and, Colorado is the reward for putting Oklahoma behind you.

    It was their lack of punctuation that had me seeking a paved alternative.

    All the four way intersections with not stop or yield signs had me spooked.

    I'm confused (but that's not hard to do). In Oklahoma you can always see about 20 miles in every direction with no traffic out there. That's probably why they saved some money on control signs. LOL

    Where I discovered the cross traffic it had rained enough to have no dust cloud to be seen.

    I stopped to look at the map and WOOOOOSH there went a truck!

    I am looking to do a section of the TAT this year and have been searching for a state by state mileage chart. I know Sam's website has this info for a few of the states but not for all. Can anyone direct me to this information? I am sure it has been compiled but I have not been able to locate it. Planning on starting in W. Virginia so most interested in the Eastern and Midwestern States for now.

    TIA,
    Dan

    What states exactly do you want to know the total mileage?
