One Ordinary Family on an Extraordinary Adventure

Signs, Signs, Everywhere Signs | Signs Across America

In our travels, we have seen a lot of signs. Most of them are pretty mundane. Stop signs, yield signs, billboards, and street signs are everywhere. Each time we enter a new state, we get a little excited when we see the sign welcoming us to the new state(it doesn’t take much to make us happy, really).

Most of the signs we see along the way just pass through our consciousness, barely even noticed. But then, there are a few that have caught our attention. Here are a few of our favorites.


We found this picture at Steamtown in Pennsylvania.


If a hobo is someone who travels and works, well, then, it looks like we are hoboes.


Alligators? Who said anything about ‘gators?

Alligators? Where?

Alligators? Where?

Sesame Street

Remember the song? “Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street?”


Not only have we been there, we can tell you how to get there.


Keep off the rocks


Oh, did you mean these rocks?


Seen in Texas


Not sure what we can say about this ENORMOUS propane tank we saw in Texas.


Spivey’s Corner


We found the hollerin’ capital in North Carolina. In case you’ve been wondering where the hollerin’ capitalĀ is.


What’s for lunch anyway?



Apparently, it is a Southern thing.


Laundry, laundry, and more laundry.


Brian takes on this chore in our family most of the time. Apparently this dad isn’t the only one.


Hold on a minute!


This might be taking that laundry thing a little too far.


If you have to ask…

Years ago, on a trip to NY, we saw this place near Rochester. Since Brian had grown up there, this sign did not stand out. I was cracking up. The temptation to add a question mark onto the sign was very real. I resisted.

If you have to ask, you probably aren't.

If you have to ask, you probably aren’t.
