    I’m not against the markers but does anyone else feel road signs, in general, are out of control?

    These are historic markers Tim, not signs which yes….are out of control. I always look for historic markers when I do my road trips. Oftentimes the only thing of significance that remain on the sites relative to the history where these markers are propped are the markers themselves….the old barns or houses, etc. long gone.

    ‘Vermont.’ My favorite sign!
