I've driven five of the routes listed:

Arizona 160
California 139
Delaware 18
Oregon 395
Utah 50

Trust me, these are some lonely roads.

Now I have 45 more roads to put on my bucket list.

p.s. I find it interesting that three of the five I have driven are on the top ten for scenic value according to the linked webpage - I feel pretty lucky.

I remember driving route 50 though Nevada and Utah. l'm pretty sure I passed a broken down station wagon from the 60s with a family of skeletons inside.

I started reading Blue Highways recently, am considering doing something similar.

Excellent read. When we had a restaurant some years back, I made sure to hang up every calendar that was offered.

One of my favorite books. I also like "PrairyErth" by the same author, but it is almost the opposite approach - a deep dive into a single rural county.

Ohhh, I love this sort of travel writing. I'll be loading that into the book bag right away. Thanks for the tip!

He's a very good writer with a real knack for evocative but efficient description. Hope you enjoy it!

So now you know where to take folks if you're gonna murder them. Aint no passerby to see nothing.

But what about all the other serial killers who have the same idea?

I guess at that point, It takes a village to raze a village?

The family that slays together stays together.

Shit - you can do that just about ANYWHERE in the Anza-Borrego, or Imperial County back country. There are still burnt out trailer husks from 20 years ago in the desert where crazed bikers blew themselves up because they fucked up their peanut-butter-crank recipe.
