No partial adoptions for me: I have adapted US 281 from Brownsville, TX to the Canadian border at Dunseith, ND. It's my favorite highway to drive.

g-rockp; Me too, I am the proud owner of a football size chunk of old (abandoned section) of Route 66 from near Gallup, New Mexico. Just pulled my truck over one day out there and somehow a chunk appeared in the truck bed. We travelled 66 many times in the 40's from Lawrence to L.A. and back; still finds sections in N.M. and Arizona (especially good) whenever I'm out there. The nostalgia for those road trips is great, miss the canvas water bags, the window mounted (torpedo) swamp coolers, the 6-legged calf at the Jackrabbit curios emporium and the Navajo roadside vendors. I-40 is fast but a different world!

I did. It never calls, never writes....but I'm not bitter.

All the trash collecting companys need to be first to sign up - they are the ones that create most of it - with trash flying out the tops of their trucks !!

Sort of. It is probably frowned upon but I have several small chunks of old original Route 66 pavement and/or curbing from Oklahoma. I adopted them and take care of them as they sit on my shelf.

Solution to dog problem: Pepper spray, Air horn, firecrackers, guns including 22 caliber and 410 shotgun! No sympathy for dogs running loose and harrassing the neighborhood and passerbys!

We adopted a bit of highway...but then there was this dog. A really mean dog. Did you know that really mean dogs aren't much help when you are picking up trash along the highway?

Yes, and I turned the 4-lane road into a leisurely 2-lane road. No need to concentrate on staying between the lines, enjoy double the space for added ease and enjoyment.

...didn't work out too well for Newman, though.

I have cool rocks from the side of the road that I collected through the years... Does that count?

I take a litter bag and pick up litter on my walks. I take very short walks. I hate fast food for a variety of reasons. Lots of brand names out there.

Yes but keep it quiet. It doesn't know it is adopted yet.

No, but I owned a stretch of I-94 when I was young, crazy, and had a wicked hot set of wheels.
