Twelve Mile Circle

There is a blog called "Twelve Mile Circle"   http://www.howderfamily.com/blog/mardela-delmar/ that has recently wrote about the drive from Mardela to Delmar.  He consider it unusual and seemed to have an interest in place names created by mashing together two or more other place names  - Geographic portmanteaus - which which Mardela and Delmar share.

Thanks for the mention. Twelve Mile Circle focuses on unusual geographic situations. Two portmanteaus towns plus the intersection of the Mason-Dixon and Transpeninsular lines does indeed meet that definition and creates a nice opportunity for a fun detour.
