I put 801 signs and posters on California freeways last year, for a grand total of 6,588 signs posted with few hassles and no arrests. I reluctantly left out Seattle and Portland this year because even in a Prius I couldn't justify the extra mileage, although any activists in the pacific northwest are welcome to take my place. (Also, this would be a good time for signs around the George Washington Bridge.) Here are some pictures from my travels:
"Wake up and smell the permafrost" was a favorite, and I posted several hundred of them, actually replacing "the coffee" for awhile when you googled "wake up and smell". Also inspired this song which, though quite pretty, doesn't seem to have anything to do with the Arctic.

I did a few of these signs using the cover of Brian Eno's "Before and After Science" album. No particular reason except I really like the image and wanted to share...
Favorite spot on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge. Signs placed on the outside of curves have a very high visibility rate and, in this case, are a real pain to backtrack, locate and take down.
Another favorite spot, directly across the 580 from the Chevron offices in Point Richmond. For some reason signs would stay up for weeks at a time and I was able to keep an almost constant vigil there throughout 2013.
Second place winner from 2013 slogan contest.
This ones a bit of a dog whistle, referring to the parts per million of CO2 in the atmosphere. If you know what it means, chances are you won't try to take it down.
