OK, there seems to be a bit of an eye exam needed for certain Dayton area drivers. So, if you were to see the sign to the right, what would you think?
Most likely that Columbus means COLUMBUS, OHIO and that SR 79 = Scenic Route 79, NOT Interstate 79 (I-79). Especially if you were told I-79 was in PA.
OK, maybe that was a difficult sign to interpret.
So, lets go with the next sign you may see. Maybe the "SR" is not their but how about the background of OHIO on 79? Wouldn't that represent OHIO 79?
Would it be fair to say that Ohio 79 and/or Scenic Route 79 IS NOT I-79.
This may seem a bit unfair, and I will certainly go along with that. But, the sign also provides a few more helpful hints. Let's say Newark is one of them.
Hopefully you didn't think this was Newark NJ, otherwise you would have driven in with Tim McWain (and not been late). So, that leaves Newark, OH. Now Newark is just on the east side of Columbus. About 90 - 120 minutes from Dayton. Now I don't know how many times you've left Montgomery County, but getting to PA from Dayton takes MORE THAN 2 HOURS!
OK, so maybe I'm over-reacting. But come on, the sign says Buckeye Lake for crying out loud. Buckeye is synonymous with OHIO. You couldn't have been in PA.
NO, there is no excuss for getting lost when you're on I-70 heading East traveling to Pittsburgh.
