Anyone know where I can get a map, or even a listing of the old federal highway system that is all together, one piece? The FHA has a site National Highway System , but you have to piece an itinerary together from the various state maps.

I'm thinking like Route 66 (East to West, or visa versa) or 441 (north to south). That sort of thing. There are some very interesting sights and towns away from the interstate system. The Frau and I have plenty of time, as we have paid our 'dues' and just about ready to hang it up.

Thanks for your help.

Check out some collector sites for road maps, which is a pretty popular hobby. You might find a collector that will sell you a dog-eared coffee-spotted vintage road atlas for not much more than the postage. Get one from before about 1955, and all the old pre-interstate US highways will be intact in there.

I think US-6 would be one of the most interesting to drive, Cape Cod to Los Angeles.

Can't rep you again, jtur88. But I'm definitely with you on Route 6! And I just have seen the portions in OH & IN!
