Snowbird season is just around the corner and many of us are thinking about the south. For us in the west, that means we’ll be doing our share of up-and-down-hill driving, through conditions that may be less than the best.
Even when we’re below the snowbelt our travels may still take us into and through mountainous country. Which is where you may find this book handy. We picked up our copy in 2001 or so, and have been using it ever since.
If you like to avoid surprises on unfamiliar highways, Mountain Directory West — For Truckers, RV and Motorhome Drivers — is worth the price ($16.95 US). It gives the location and description of more than 400 mountain grades and steep passes in 11 western states, including % grade, number of switchbacks, curves, speed limits and such.
You’ll find more about the book on the publisher’s website.
