David Carter offers today’s RV Tip:
We have found the Rand McNally “Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas” a must have! We buy an updated version every year or two and it has NEVER let us down. It’s full of neat “stuff” professional drivers need to know.
All of your questions and concerns are quickly allayed because it highlights low clearances, access and/or restricted routes due to weight, size length etc. While the current GPS models on the market today update themselves near instantaneously with this info and other data, we find the truckers atlas handier to use than the small screen, micro keyboard GPS.
GPS devices have their place and are valuable tools, but when it comes to what route to consider, a good old quality map is the way we have been traveling long before GPS hit our dashboards. — Happy Trails
