Just wondering if anybody else has more info.

I was curious if there are many destination signs to Seattle in British Columbia? Based on what I saw on google streetview, there weren't destination signs to Seattle in Vancouver BC(from what I saw, I probably missed a lot).

On the eastern end of I-40 in Wilmington, NC, there's a sign for Barstow, CA some 2500+ miles away.
While that's a novelty sign that marks the entire length of I-40, it is an actual Interstate sign.

That said, I have seen signs for Miami on I-95, hundreds and hundreds of miles north of it.
