Mmm, masochism
As defined by watching any Supernatural episode set in Indiana, and not just covering my ears and going LA LA LA LA LA whenever it looks like they might mention a geographical location or community feature.

Dear Kripke Sam and Dean: that's a mighty long detour off I-90 you took there, to get to Muncie. 'Bout, oh, three hundred miles... pie in the tri-state area?

MUNCIE IS VAGUELY NEAR THE OHIO BORDER AND OTHERWISE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STATE. IT IS NOT PART OF ANY TRI-STATE AREA IN WHICH TO HAVE THE BEST PIE. It also has a population of around 70,000 and is not in the middle of nowhere; it's a major state-university city.

Sigh. Could be worse. You could be back tracking down Lilith as she chases an ice-cream truck through the sparkling cul-de-sacs of suburban New Harmony.

Which is as rural as you can possibly get, and has a population of 800 with no houses built after the turn of the previous century.

Admittedly, Quantum Leap will always have you beat with the cliff in freaking Crown Point, but you do keep trying, don't you.

That sounds like me ranting at the X-Files every time they did anything on the Northwest side of the DC metro area. (For the last time, Hollywood, the city is called Silver Spring, Maryland, not Silver Springs, Maryland. One spring! One! And I wanna know where the spooky giant industrial warehouse district is in Gaithersburg -- the industrial centers of town I've seen are pretty much all strip mall or office building shaped.)

Honestly, I'm surprised they referenced the highway at all. As far as I know, I'd only seen that previously in fic.

If only the highway they'd referenced hadn't been the Indiana Toll Road. Which runs across the top of the state.
