    Guess Where The Road Is #2

    Here's another one for practice. Let's see how you do this time ... WITHOUT GOOGLE!

    Think ... what cities have cardinal street numbers that go so high? Look at the landscape.

    I know where it is, so I won't say.
    I think that one of the great signs of security is the ability to just walk away.

    California or Arizona ?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    One location per guess. Otherwise, someone could post "Alabama, or Arizona, or Alaska, or Arkansas, or ....."

    I cheated and used Google, because I was curious where you would find a 339th Ave. Interesting.

    This is strictly a guess -- no googling.

    It is Interstate 10 west of Phoenix. Can't tell if it is east or westbound though.

    It's gotta be somewhere in the desolate sprawly West to be surrounded by nothingness at 339th Ave... I'll guess Phoenix as well.

    Gedunker has it, and ludes98 has it pinned down. Better than I thought, actually.

    There are also exits for 355th Ave and 411th Ave. No idea why they continue the grid out that far, but I am sure we will sprawl out that far and then it will all make sense. I have driven that stretch many times. I littered that highway with the 250' lattice cell towers you see on the drive. My contribution to your cell phone service.
