I would like to see if the ladies on here could come up with a nice list of highway stretches that need improvement in some way. Such as more rest areas, fewer pot holes, better signs, or just about anything that comes to your mind.

My hated stretch is the I30. Nowhere near enough rest areas or truck stops to comfort a bladder that insists I stop every two hours.

I684 in CT, I70 in IN and OH roads are horrible. This year the highways are severe from this brutal winter. Will make "construction" season a nightmare. I25 in CO sucks for rest areas as does pretty much anywhere in the west. **** TX has alor but ive never been able to find parking in one when I gotta go!

I love hearing this! I was thinking about keeping tabs of which rest areas have hot water. And non metal seats. Would you guys be interested in something like that? I hate washing my hands in cold cold water and then blow drying my already cold hands in a dryer that only gets warm after my hands are dried.

I'm a germophobe....I won't use the toilet paper or towels in public rest rooms...I carry my own. And I don't touch the door handles without a paper towel...I also carry a spray bottle of listerine/water to disinfect the toilet seat...People are really sickos nowdays....if they are sick, they think everyone should be...not this chicky...So if you see me packing a small bag into the restroom...you'll know why...lol. My husband has always thought I go overboard...I can't help it...
