The End of the Road with Yanny and Laurel

Mar. 20, 2019

A funny thing happened at the eastern end of US Highway 80.  As we rolled south along Butler Ave (Hwy 80) in sleepy Tybee Island just outside Savannah, I saw the marker for the End of US Highway 80.   80 has been in my life for as long as I’ve been driving a car, from Dallas, through East Texas to Shreveport, Ruston, Monroe and Tallulah.  I asked Edna to snap a pic out the window as we slowly rolled by.  She missed, so I stopped and she hopped out to walk back while I circled around.  After we got back to the RV, she showed me the picture.

“That's not the marker” I said, “Didn’t you see the big granite marker?”

Yanny looked at Laurel like he had lost his mind.

So I did an OK Google search, “end of highway 80 monument in tybee island”  One of the pics, the one I Showed Her, (this one, click here) had us both laughing!

The view of the world truly depends on what window you are looking out of.

To see our updated pic (we had to go back) scroll below. As you can see, the two markers are no longer together, but Yanny still loves Laurel (and vice versa).

BTW, the pic above is on a neat website called US, a website that provide photos and descriptions of current and historic US highway endpoints.  It will provide minutes of entertainment.  And according to US Ends, 40 years ago US 80 ended in San Diego, but now only reaches as far west as Dallas.
