https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riding_shotgun

 

"Riding shotgun was used to describe the bodyguard who rides alongside a stagecoach driver, typically armed with a break-action shotgun, called a Coach gun, to ward off bandits or hostile Native Americans. In modern use, it refers to the practice of sitting alongside the driver in a moving vehicle. The phrase has been used metaphorically to mean giving actual or figurative support or aid to someone in a situation.The coining of this phrase dates to 1905 at latest."

But getting back to questions what's the best route in terms of scenery between Philadelphia's liberty bell  centre and the Walker art center Minneapolis?

 

Not a lot of choices there unless you're willing to roam out of your way, otherwise it's kind of Philly > Chicago > Minneapolis.  Scenery depends on what you're trying to see.  Lot of good trainspotting opportunities on or within an hour of that route including some "must see" stuff if you have time to fuck around.

scenery would be a delightful combo of amish stuff, cool americana, graffiti,  small towns, big cities and spread the drive over like 10 days.

 

 man I would love to go on a road trip across america.

 was idly day dreaming where I'd go. 

 

One day....

(actually could also go in the random thoughts thread)

 

 

 

Probably not the answer you want but you can't go wrong taking Amtrak across that stretch, most of that drive isn't going to be that scenic and be focused on dodging traffic.

 

If you're driving I'd suggest long, or overnight stops in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Chicago bare minimum. Mark your highly rated waypoints for food, drinks, good outdoor scenic walks in advance and those three stops should be epic.

@Mercer

yeah  you could stretch that journey out only hit the interstates in small doses if you had to make up some time.

 this being a dream holiday there would be some Amtrak travel involved somehow.
Only taken trains DC-NYC, NYC -Boston & Montreal NYC but it was always good barring the border crossing which sucked.

Philadelphia to NYC is my personal favorite just for the graffiti. Montreal to NYC is a dope route just for scenery, but as you've mentioned, just on the New York side of the border through lake Champlain and down. Border crossings in North America tend to suck balls.

That's a golden eagle.

Why isn’t the shield black and the bird golden?

 

Looks more like black bird and a golden shield...🤷‍♂️

Anyone else noticing an uptick in catalytic converter theft?   Apparently my city is having a problem with it so much, guys are doing the stealing during the day with no regard to who's around.
