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." Sherry McBride, Senior Managing Editor, Motorhome
"RVers often have problems with mountain grades--both going up and coming down. It's helpful to be warned when a steep grade is coming up, and that's just what the two Mountain Directories do." Coast to Coast
"Color relief maps and more than 150 new mountain pass and grade locations have been added to R&R Publishing's 1999 editions of Mountain Directory West and Mountain Directory East. Together, the books provide locations and descriptions for more than 700 mountain passes and steep grade locations in 22 states, as well as other vital information for anyone driving a large or heavy vehicle. In Mountain Directory East, the introduction notes that elevation by itself does not indicate a grade's difficulty; the change in elevation, depicted in the book as percentages, is the critical factor."
