This is the tenth such file I've created for the interstates in the west so you would think it would'a been easy, but it wasn't. Well, not so's ya'd know it much.
I've been sorta expecting someone to make these files for several years and putting up with the fact that GE doesn't have any labels for them; but, enough is enough.
I've mentioned before that by opening this file in the background of GE while I'm reading trail books, I can instantly see which exit they're sending us to in their directions.
California InterstatesI-5 is the longest interstate in California. It actually begins at the Canadian border but like a pinball drops into California from Oregon, flashes the lights at Sacramento, rings all the bells around Los Angeles then lands at the Tijuana flipper gate [Yea, sometimes I even amaze myself].
I-80 traverses across the state from Nevada near Reno, through Sacramento and into San Francisco where it is swallowed up before it actually smells the ocean air.
I-8 doesn't get to see the ocean either but it does smell it from where it begins at Sea World Parkway before running along the border to Arizona. I-10, now there's the lucky one, it begins at Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica and runs east to Palm Springs and Blythe into Arizona.
I-15 continues from Nevada to end on I-5 in San Diego. I-40, from Arizona, ends on I-15 too at Barstow.
Then there's all infrastructure needed to support the megalopolis that is Los Angeles: I-105, I-110, I-205, I-215, I-405, I-605, I-805, whew!
But, those around "San Fran" aren't just pocket change. I-205, I-238, I-280, I-380, I-505, I-580, I-680, I-780, I-880 and I-980. If I forgot anyone, raise your hand.
