The Best Street Name in all of North Carolina



Yes, the sign reads "Jones Sausage Rd"!  At Exit 303 on I-40 outside of Raleigh, North Carolina, Jones Sausage Road is my favorite street name in the Tar Heel State.  Apparently it's named after the Jesse Jones Sausage Company, a subsidiary of ConAgra Foods.  GoodMark Foods, the company that formed when General Mills bought Jesse Jones, makes Slim Jims at its plant in Garner.  The product isn't appealing to me, but I still like the name of the road.  

GoodMark Foods, Inc.'s address is located on my second favorite street name in North Carolina: Falls of the Neuse Road.

I fail to see how liking the name "Jones Sausage Road" makes me strange!

How about the sign near Chapel Hill (I think) for the two towns that reads:

CLIMAX
JULIAN

Sounds like an order. LOL.

I've never seen that sign! A quick look at Google maps tells me that Climax is in Guilford County south of Greensboro, and Julian is just east of Climax. Odd names for towns!

And stop signing yourself as Donald Fagen!

I'll take a pic of it next time I'm that way. Why does signing my name as D. Fagen bother you? Keep it up and I'll tell W. Becker about your site. ;)
