That's two of five so far. (Honolulu is served by H1.)

Honolulu has three - H1, H2, H3.  If they ever decide to build a fourth, I wonder what it would be named...?

You never know, with the heavy Asian influence they might go straight to H5 ;)

25/50 which isn't too bad for a Canadian.   :)

Hey, that makes sense.  They named the H3 - H1 interconnector H201.  I always figured that was just a clever way of saying "To H1."

I got 42. I thought I had an edge working for an airline but I clicked on a couple major cities we serve
as opposed to the capital.

How can Hawaii have interstate highways? Aren't then Intra-state highways?  :-\

Makes about as much sense as a midget using mouthwash, don't it?

Which state capital has the highest elevation?

Santa Fe, NM?  I remember it being over 7000 Ft.
Bingo! Give that man a cegar!
