The Top 20 Silliest, Ironic and Naughty Routes from Cost2Drive
Pouring over the data from more than 1 million trips entered on the Cost2Drive Website and iPhone app in 2011 I came across the following route:
From Whistler, BC to Prairie due Chien, WI
If you understand a little French you’ll know that prairie du chien literally translates to dog prairie, and I chuckled when I saw it combined with whistler as whistle and dog seemed like a funny combination. I decided to dig through tens of thousands of other route pairs entered on Cost2Drive in 2011 to see if I could find any more humorous combinations and below are the results.
- Great Neck, NY to Lynchburg, VA…gallows humor
- Plymouth, MA to Mechanicville, NY…if you’ve ever owned one you’ll get this
- Wellfleet, MA to Sinking Spring, PA
- Belle Chasse, LA to Deerfield, IL (belle chase translates to ‘good hunt’)
- Newton, MA to Appleton, WI
- Rushville, NY to Shippagan, New Brunswick…haste makes waste
- Loveland, CO to Kissimmee, FL
- Champaign, IL to Little Creek, DE…for those with small bladders
- Washington, DC to Circleville, OH…my only political commentary
- Butler, PA to Leavenworth, KS…he obviously did it
- Norwood, MA to Widener, AR…Buffalo Bills are still recovering from this one
- Norman, OK to Batesville, AR….MOOOOTHHHEEERRR!!
- Clinton, CT to Bushville, NY…Nov. 2001
- Cherry Hill, NJ to Pittsfield, MA
