Since I was driving, and often times trying to catch up to re-join the caravan, please excuse me if this blog is in any way lacking...
I-40 between High Point Rd and Wendover Ave
This stretch of the interstate was just flat and open, with exits branching off, but nothing directly accessible from the road. There was not a strong sense of community along this road, but it was more as if it was a connector between communities.
There are large mass production stores, such as Wal-Mart, restaurant, Tripps, and car dealerships, Volks Wagon, along Wendover Ave. There are also gas stations, Sheetz, and fast food places, Burger King, banks, Wells Fargo, and cell phone companies, AT&T and Verizon. This stretch has a lot of retail all along the highway, with many traffic lights and entrances to the bigger stores right off the road. The road shows that it was a cross section because of the close proximity of everything to the street, instead of larger open spaces.
Battleground Ave from South to North
Battleground did not seem as crowded as Wendover, it still crossed through previously established areas, although these areas were more residential rather than consumer oriented. I don't really remember much about this road, but I remember there being more trees.
