Recently, both of my cyclometers went dead on the PSRT. For a moment I felt lost without them. I don’t use a GPS or GPS-app. But then I remembered I knew these country roads from an earlier study. Thus, I knew were I was the whole time. Here’s a north-to-south list of the road crossings on the PSRT and SWT. These names can also be seen on this site’s maps.

From north to south, the country road names are in descending alphanumeric order unless they have a proper name, e.g., John Brown, Rock Creek, or Scipio. Yet, the town/village streets often are in ascending order.
