Several states lay claim to having the longest straight road in the U.S. Verifying who does and if it indeed is perfectly straight is somewhat difficult for even the slightest bend is a disqualifier. At any rate I am not about to jump into the controversy. This stretch of State Route 3 between Guyman and Boise City in Oklahoma was 50 miles straight as an arrow long with nary a car or truck on it.
I stopped at one of only three intersecting roads for this picture. I mean, it was something to stop for after mile upon mile of nothing else.
A mail box!
Some poor soul of a rural carrier has to drive this road each day to deliver this guy's mail?
I took another while driving just for something to do.
I feel Oklahoma should promote this road as other states do with their "Longest Straight Road" claims. After all, goofy guys like me will travel to your state just to drive your straight road. In fact, if you look at a map of the Oklahoma panhandle, there is another road east of this, a continuation of Route 3 that appears to be nearly 80 miles long of straightness.
Imagine having to paint those lines.
