Welcome to the Claim-A-Road commmunity! You can claim ANY ROAD, past or present, for yourself.
Freeways, residential streets, scenic highways, business routes, roads with weird names, whatever...... take your pick!
1. Only members of the community may make claims. Leave the community and you lose your claim. You are not required to keep this community on your friends list.
2. You may claim ANY TWO roads per calendar year. If you promote this community in your LJ user info (profile), you are entitled (one time only, not every year) to two additional claims which can be used at any time.
3. You may select any road or stretch of road, past or present, fact or fiction. No two users can claim the same road or stretch of road. If you wish to select only a stretch of road, you must specify which stretch you wish to claim. (Example: "I claim Interstate 70 from Interstate 15 to the Colorado-Nebraska border.")
4. If you claim a "route" which covers more than one road, it counts as one road, as long as it is officially recognized somewhere as a single route. You may claim an intersection (counting it as one claim), but not two intersecting streets (unless you count them for two claims).
5. Questions? Ask the moderator, mmmmjournal. I will keep a public list of the claims.
