I took a short cut through the states when driving from one end of Canada to the other. We were on interstates the whole way and I thought it was terribly dull. Nothing but gas stations and fast food restaurants.
Not that the route through Canada was anymore exciting. In the west it's all field, field, field, shitty little town with a gas station, field, field, field. Once you hit Ontario, it's tree, tree, tree, shitty little town with a gas station, tree, tree, tree. The Great Lakes were beautiful though. Them are some big, damn lakes!
