    I run 62/412 a lot all the way across quite a bit. Loaded usually around 88k gross with cattle. I thought it was a pretty good road. Guess I was wrong

    That’s how they rolled years ago before the Interstate system started sprouting up all over the country. It’s good to back to the old ways once in a while.

    If you liked that, run Hwy 7 from Russellville to Harrison next time you’re here. You’ll love it, scout’s honor!

    You are probably thinking of Lancaster to Paint Lick in KY as a comparative "Pretty good Road" on KY 53. Back in the late 50's, not since a few miles improved near Lancaster. This was the "acid test" trip for new drivers; Macon, MS to Paint Lick, with skinny, weak, raggedy stock cattle. Buy them cheap in Macon, truck to KY bluegrass, triple your money. Added to the narrow cracked edge, no shoulder roadbed, the trees overhang made you ride up on that dividing line. Tight..
