Dear '66 Classmates,

 

By now most of us have gotten our first shot of COVID vaccine, and some have had the second. Finally a positive about geezerhood other than wisdom and cheaper movie tickets. We hope that all are well and side effects minimal.

This Week's New '66 Geographical Trivia Puzzler. What is the largest United States city (by population) not served by an Interstate highway?

 

Last Week's '66 Geographical Trivia Puzzler - Totally Crushed by Ted Hoster, Russell Willis, and Jeff Green. Honorable Mention to John Goodrich. Trenton, NJ ("Trenton makes; the world takes" and a few irreverent parodies) and Carson City, NV are state capitals bordering PA and CA, respectively. Juneau, AK borders Canada, has a glacier within city limits, is larger than two states, and you can't drive in or out, Close but no cigar for naming Cheyenne, WY, Tallahassee, FL, and St. Paul, MN which are close to state borders. A special "Creativity" award for suggesting state capitals near to Native American nations.
