That's why I only cross in the no-toll direction.

All good reasons!, The redwoods are truly majestic (though I don't hesitate to cut 'em down for lumber- they friggin grow like weeds around here!), there are several impressive groves near me, but the tallest ones pushing 380 feet tall, are up in the North Coast area in Humboldt County. Interestingly there are three recognized types of redwoods, and one, the Coast Redwood, of them is the tallest tree in the world and another one, Giant Sequoia is the largest tree in the world in terms of total biomass. You find the giant sequoia up in the Sierra around Yosemite.

Yeah, over the last few years they keep upping the toll. I never pay it because I only cross northbound and can generally avoid it without adding mileage to my drive.

I just avoid them altogether. We don't have many toll roads out here, they just started toll lanes for commuters and since I don't travel at those times I can avoid them. The bridges are all toll going westbound or northbound except for the Golden Gate which is toll going southbound.

I didn't make the rules, I just take advantage of them.

sometimes i just run across them when we travel somewhere, i am anti toll road "bad". i pay enough damn taxes and it irks my ass to no end that we have to pay to drive on a highway. i got iritated a couple of weeks ago, there is a toll booth in bfe not far from my house. we were going to some of my wifes families house and from where we were it would be quicker to go through the toll booth. i told her screw it, i will take the longer way. well she got her way and we went through the toll booth, "this is the part that royally pissed me off". from where i was sitting in the toll booth, the off ramp that i needed to take was literally 3ft passed the booth. i had to pay .75 just to roll 3ft and hit the off ramp.

When I was in OK a couple of years ago I made a wrong turn and had to pay a damned toll to turn around right there. Pissed me off to no end.

thats no crap! and i dont know where the money is going? the highways were paid for YEARS ago and the conditions of them are always sh!tty. Oklahoma's way of repairing roads is to throw a couple shovels of asphault in a hole and let the vehicles pack it down

that same toll booth is in the county where i reside. when i was a deputy there we would sometimes get calls that would make us go through the toll booth. one time i was responding to an assault in progress out that way, i was running code 3 "lights and siren". i briefly stopped at the booth for common courtesy and the lady working it tried to make me pay the toll!!

i told her to pound sand

The one I was at was unmanned so there was nobody to argue with. I was driving the RV with the Jeep behind it, if I was just in a car I might have backed up and cut across the islands but that isn't going to work in a 58 foot rig.
