I swear by these books! The info is invaluable, but no book has everything. The key is to use this info to avoid pitfalls and rough out the trip(s), then make the adventure your own. Facts and maps are very accurate (mileage, put in/take out), and history is interesting as well. I suggest copying the text page on one side and the map on the other. Laminate and you are set for hours or days of worry free adventure!
