Mark Sedenquist and Megan Edwards' California home was destroyed by a forest fire in 1993. Instead of rebuilding, the couple bought an RV and took to the open road, traveling across the U.S. and Canada for almost seven years.
The couple has since settled in Las Vegas, but they continue to take driving vacations and encourage others to do the same on their website, RoadTrip America, which they run through Flattop Productions, their small business. Sedenquist and Edwards estimate they've traveled over 650,000 miles.

i-70 is the highest pass of interstates.
where’d they get “one of”?
Think of the Carbon footprint.
California sure dominates this list. But I would think at least one highway in Pennsylvania would’ve made it considering that we consistently win the honor of having the nation’s worst roads. We are also the roadkill capital of the nation.
I-70 is not scary. Try US6 over the pass in the Winter instead.
US-30 in PA during the Winter.
I-5 in the San Joaquin valley is on the list because of the fog in the winter months but what makes it such a pain to drive and sometimes scary because of all the trucks on it and the big differential in speeds.
You want fun? Try driving I-70 eastbound at night in February, coming down a five mile steep grade from Eisenhower tunnel. The road paint and reflectors are all-but invisible from a coating of road sand, so you can barely see where you are going. Throw in some swirling snow and you’ll wonder why you decided to go night skiing at Keystone.
The OK e-w interstate during fire time.
You should’a gone to Eldora.
Both are scary at night. And yeah, I've driven over Loveland Pass in the winter.
Eldora didn’t have night skiing in 2000-2002 when I lived in CO. Keystone was about the only hill close to Denver that did at the time.
Vail Pass b-4 the Interstate.
Wait a minute!...I’m not scary at all, just keep your speed down on the curves!
I-80 from Reno to Sacramento on a snowy day - tight turns and narrow lanes + crazy Californians and illegals.
If you think tha’ts bad, slide over to the 99 between the Ridge Route and Tulare.
Interesting - decades ago I went to Eldora for night skiing on New Years Eve.
I’ll second that nomination. Worst stretch: Mcconnellsburg to Chambersburg, with Ligoner to Bedford being a near runner-up.
There’s a reason we used to use parts of US-30 for brake testing in the summer. ;-)
Drive through Camden, NJ sometime. Talk about scary.
