If you don't like the roads in the South and Mid West, you should love the ones around New York City
About 15 years ago (towing a pop-up, luckily, not an AS), we had to go through the Tapanzee Bridge that seperates New York and New Jersey. If you go below 65-70 miles an hour in the 55 zones, you will get killed.
They had made "temporary" repairs to the surface across several lanes, just getting on the bridge, rows upon rows of 2" thick metal plates connected with bolts: heads sticking up 1.5 inches high !!!
We stopped after the bridge to inspect our tires, a trucker doing the same, shaking his head: never had seen anything that criminally stupid. We mentioned that to the toll-taker who said "heeuu? whatch you mean?"
This road was the only one we ever considered when going from Philadelphia to say Massachussett. That's the best one they have to offer to go around NYC.
Now, we make several hundred miles detour by taking I-81 instead.
So, just count your blessings. Like
else in Texas, I see you have the biggest whiners.
