    We've got one here, with a road name saying "River Road", and then a notice under saying "No access to river"

    If you pop open your Atlas and check out Utah in the center of the state is a city known as Fillmore. Fillmore was once selected to be the Capitol for the State of Utah a few years before Salt Lake City was selected. Today it is a small community about 30 miles North of Beaver, Utah. Yup, you are right... about ten miles North of Fillmore is a state road sign that has two cities listed on it. Fillmore, Beaver.....

    I do not admit to sending this post....

    OK Brownie, if we are going to talk about town names I have to tell you about an intersection in Cypress Calif. The two streets are Holder and Ball.

    Like you, I do not admit to sending this post...

    Haven't got a photo of it, but a forestry block not far from here has a road sign "Firewood gully road", and right underneath it another saying - "Gathering of firewood strictly prohibited".

    I know that's right, Brownie!!!! I drove U S 12 from Baker to Miles City, MT, one time - about all I saw was a lot of pretty scenery and a whole lot of cows!!

    Sign at a gas station in Baker said "Next gas - 86 miles". They weren't kidding.

    When my daughter and I went to South Dakota on a father/daughter trip I told her she wasn't in Memphis. She's the type that lets the gas gauge go near empty before filling up. I told her that ain't gonna work out here - and I'm not gonna be the one walking 10 or more miles to a gas station with a gas can in my hand. LOL

    I used to go to farm auctions a lot, and laughed at the directions to one in eastern Oregon: "Turn off Highway XXX on the road to Paulina- go 100 miles, watch for auction signs." They invited folks to come the day before- bring camping gear or RV, fishing gear and/or varmint rifle, lots to do, big barbecue that evening.

    I didn't read about anybody getting killed. . .

    Do you remember the Burma Shave signs?

    EVERY DAY / WE DO / OR PART / TO MAKE YOUR FACE / A WORK OF ART / BURMA-SHAVE

    My wife gave me a paperback of with all 600 of the Burma Shave roadside rhymes from the beginning in 1925 until their removal in 1963.

    Titled:
    the verse by the side of the road
    by Frank Rowsome, Jr.

    It you like to read a little road side humor, you might like to pick up a copy. There are several copies on ebay, one was less than 80 cents.

    Spring
    Has sprung
    The grass has riz
    Where last year's
    Careless drivers is
    Burma-Shave

    That book, "Verse by the side of the road" is a great book, especially if you grew up riding (with parents) or driving the nations hiways back in the 40's and 50's. Check this out - http://www.fiftiesweb.com/burma1.htm

    About 5 years or so backI came across a set of signs just east of Alma, Arkansas, on Highway 64 - don't know if they were restored, privately made signs or what.

    The ladies
    Take one whiff
    And purr--
    It's no wonder
    Men prefer
    Burma-Shave Lotion

    Ah, them were the days.

    One of these was at the exit from an RV park in WY.
    The 2nd at a couple of museums,
    The 3rd at the gas station/deli up the road.

    This truck put me in mind of our old 35 Ford Flatbed dump. I can remember bringing 17 ft logs uphill out of the woods with Grandpa on one fender and I on the other so Dad could steer bewteen the trees.

    The ride to the mill I still remember, what with the light front end and half a turn of play in the steering wheel. Dad was 'busier n'a cranberry merchant'
