"the superslab without much to see"

that is such a mis statement and I hear it all the time

highway thru a urbanized area, sure not scenic, but beats the surface streets the the city & suburbia

out in the rural areas, highways are more open, better vistas, not like riding thru the treed forest where ya can't see past the trees, a twisty ride and enjoyable for that reason, but not for the scenery

no need for monkey butt powder if you wear the right underwear
