Introducing the Mountain Directory Ebooks!
Miller designed his two directories for RV as well as truck drivers because, he says, ‘RV drivers would face the same problems as truckers because of the weight of their vehicles and braking systems that may not be designed to deal with the extreme conditions encountered during mountain descents.’ Since most road atlases do not include this specific data, many motorhomers will find one or both of these books useful in taking the surprises out of driving in the mountains.
Rvers traveling to new locations often meet unforeseen and possibly dangerous challenges in mountainous terrain because they could not know what type of road lay ahead. Atlases may mark elevation, but not how steep and how many miles a grade is, whether or not there are turnouts, and the condition of the road. Mountain Directory West and Mountain Directory East give locations and detailed descriptions of almost 700 mountain passes and steep grades in 22 states. This enables drivers to plan safer and easier routes, or to be prepared to face the grade.”
