Never heard of blue turf, either. Just mentally started crossing that tier of the country. And you're right, AngieD, there aren't a lot of cities to go through.

"Will it play in Peoria" goes back to the vaudeville days when people thought if a show could be popular in a provincial midwestern city such as Peoria, it could make it anywhere. Groucho Marx used the phrase a lot. Wilmington and Madison are the ones I missed. Should have gotten Madison but I would have never thought of Wilmington.

Somehow I remembered that Micron was there, and I-84 sounded familiar too. Blue turf? No idea what that refers to.

You keep forgetting? It was only Montgomery for a few months. That's like "I keep forgetting they moved the capital from Sitka to Juneau."

And isn't Wright-Patterson there, too?

Yes, sciencyguy, Wright-Patterson AFB is just outside Dayton, right next door to THE National Museum of the Air Force, which was chosen as the best location because DAYTON is the birthplace of aviation; Kitty Hawk and the entire state of North Carolina contributed NOTHING except for soft sands which would've made crashing less harmful. In other words, it was only chosen because it was a more appropriate place to fail!

Hooray for Arkansas! Don't be confused by "mountain" next to Pinnacle, because it's barely a thousand feet. However, it has a tree line and a rocky point like a taller mountain would. It's a really pretty part of Arkansas if you're ever in the area.

Why do you cut us off when writing Salt Lake City, yet demand that we type in "city" for Atlantic City?
