Yes, I've made one-way 800 km just to see black hole.

I'm going skiing there again in 18 days, now with Mestre bypass in operation.

Red: I have driven
Blue: Someone else was driving

Local (Only highways, because Mexicali would be entirely red/blue):
BTW, had you seen an USA Interstate Highway with real curves before? (Northwest corner)



Mexico/USA:

You mean the left part? It´s Federal Highway 2, a 2x2 motorway that links Mexicali (my hometown and capital city of Baja California, pop. 0.75 M, 0.8 M in metro) and Tijuana (largest city in Baja, pop. 1.9 M, 2.1 M in metro).

It´s because you drive from the lowest point in Mexico (Laguna Salada, -10 m) to a town called La Rumorosa, located at +- 1,200 m above sea level, in no more than 25 km.

And yes, the view is amazing

Here some pictures taken by me:

Laguna Salada desert. It´s a beautiful place, but it´s very dangerous if you´re not prepared. Some years ago 14 soldiers died there due to the intense heat (it reached 48°C those days) BTW, Jarhead and Resident Evil 3 were filmed there



La Rumorosa slope (taken with my old cell phone)













A nice view



Oops! Poor trucker



The speed limit in some curves is as low as 30 km/h, but some drivers don´t respect it Besides that, winds are very strong.

I don't drive just because to see roads, except for some short distances or if those roads are generally in the direction of planned business or activity.
For just seeing Frejus, which is essetinaly just a black hole, not much different than other longer black holes here in vicinity (you know, which ones) it would cost me 260 € in tolls and petrol. I don't shit money.

I also drive only if I have something else planned. however I understand those ones who drive for pleasure, I wish I could do that too one time.

No, not even 100%, I haven't got a few short sections, such as the A208 in Haarlem, A4 north of Bergen op Zoom an the very end of A58 in Vlissingen.
