Default Re: First MB to cross U.S.

I know that feeling! Pulling into a small "town" low on gas and needing a phone.... out of luck.
There's a reason why some towns are just a "dot on the map."
I've bicycled a lot of country roads in TX, and there are many "towns" that are just a few houses or a historic marker and a farm.

However, it is clear from the book, that had he known the little "towns" on the map along the railroad he followed were just sort of encampment markers and not real towns, he might never have taken his journey.
