I have fallen a few days behind on my A to Z posts this year, but I will get them all. This year I am doing signs that I have seen across the country. This post will feature signs associated with the Letter R. ENJOY THE RIDE!
We can’t avoid signs. They are everywhere. Advertisements, informational signs, directional signs, business signs and, sometimes, even humorous and fun signs. Each of my posts in this years’ challenge will feature a hodgepodge of signs I have come across in my travels. In most cases, I’ll also note where they were taken. Some were actually inside of shops or otherwise, so not all will have locations. I hope you enjoy this fun trip each day of April.
I am gonna start off big time with this one – lets get some Restroom signs in here. Y’all know that on a road trip, a pit stop or restroom break becomes imperative after a few hours. Well, I have gotten a chuckle out of some of the ones I have seen over the years. Check these out!
The sign at The Thing in Dragoon, Arizona is one of my all-time favorites!
I have a Big Moon…so I am happy that they had a Big Moon Restroom
In my P post, you saw the Need to Pee? sign that I posted from Hopland, California. Below is the rest of the story!
Saw this one at an antique shop in Tightwad, Missouri. This was in the midst of the COVID pandemic and many were actually closed.
Some places make sure the restrooms are easy to see!
Maybe you are into outhouses? How about this double-decker outhouse in Booger Holler, Arkansas?
If you saw my post on P signs, I noted the PP by the TP in Winslow. Well, here it is! And the second photo shows you where you can actually PP by the TP!
And Kentucky has a very famous outhouse —
And finally, one last Privy shot from Slade, Kentucky – Sitty Hall And it is a two-seater!
OK enough restrooms I think…how about a few more random R signs
Well, I RUSHED through the Rs. I hope you enjoyed them. Now, maybe you want to READ MORE? Like what you see here? Check out my books on Amazon.com! Currently there are three in print, and I am working on my fourth in the Less Beaten Paths of America series. You can see my books on my author page at https://www.amazon.com/~/e/B0784XVGSW

Those are some great R signs! You’ve certainly found a lot of unique ones to capture. Have you been to Lancaster, PA? I was born near the “Virginville” sign. (US 222 ~ https://email@example.com,-75.8005852,3a,75y,236.31h,86.88t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s70yXxLwhRWFMiRvPC8jYMg!2e0!7i16384!8i8192)
It’s hard to believe the blogging challenge is almost over. Then the after survey, reflections, and the road trip sign-up.
Plus, I’m taking part in the Bout of Books read-a-thon in May. So much excitement!

Yes indeed! I actually drove from Virginville to Intercourse to Paradise just to tell a story. Actually wrote about it in my first book. More coming.
These are some fun signs. I find myself checking out signs for upcoming restrooms when I’m traveling because I tend to be kind of particular and I know my wife wants clean restrooms. One of my favorite stops has been Buc-ee’s in Luling TX–glad to see more of these opening around the country since they are usually pretty dependable for cleanliness as well as a good place to gas up.
