I love to travel to historic places and have experienced the "neck hair moments" several times. When I was 18 and a freshly graduated from high school, I bought what was (is?) called an Ameripass from Greyhound. With the pass I could go anywhere Greyhound went for 30 days. This is when I experienced the most hair moments in a very concentrated period. I think the most intense of these moments was probably not an uncommon one. It was when I made my way to Arlington National Cemetery and saw the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers. Although being in DC for the first time was pretty awe inspiring, I had never seen anything like that before in my life.

The most recent time was the first time I pulled off Highway 22 into Shiloh NMP. I think a lot of people have experienced the first one. I can't put my finger on exactly why just driving into Shiloh moved me to the point of "neck hair" status.
