I can walk to Route 30 in 10 mins from where I live!


I can see why they are making a movie about it, the people around here are freakin' weird.

I can walk to it in about the same amount of time as well.

"There are right people to lynch." Who? People not well connected.

Caught the tail end of it today. Never heard of the movie before. Can't wait to see the whole thing. Weird people in this area? Yeah, some. And I live right off Rt 30. Literally. You come off the exit and you can pull in my driveway. Very convenient for my morning commute when I can look out my window and see if traffic is backed up so I know when I have to take an alternate route.

Then you guys must be those weird freaking people who lives around there.

My grandmother lives on it in NJ, where it's called the White Horse Pike.

A LOT of people could walk to Rte. 30 in five minutes--including me when I was born, except that I wasn't quite up to it yet at that age--but have you driven it coast to coast, like some of us have? Think Atlantic City, N.J., to Astoria, Ore.--simply a great slice of America, through 11 states. In fact, a few years back some people made a movie based on such a trip, called simply "30". The story was fiction, but the filmmakers themselves did virtually have to drive the entire Route to do it.

I don't know about "weird" .. but I'd call them "interesting". ( I live about 20 minute drive from the area of Route 30 where the film was primarily made)

- Mr.Ed and his Elephant Museum may appear to be something made up for the movie, but he and the shop actually exist (altho part of it burned down this summer).

- The Totem Pole Playhouse was run by William Putch (director Bill Putchs father)for thirty years and still is one of the country's premier summer stock theatres.

- the Jennie Wade story is true and the bullet hole in the door was low (about rear end level).

- Rumspringa is an Amish tradition which give the Amish youngsters the taste of "English" life and the opportunity to make a decision about whether to join the church.
