Trip Planning Info
I realize this is not an Alpine-specific question, but you forum members know just about everything...
Does anyone know of a good source for finding out the really important information on roads...things like max height, grade, white-knuckle factor, etc? John (the driver) is a lot braver than I when it comes to mountain roads. I, as the navigator, would like to be able to avoid the really scary ones. My usual method is to go by road color (and curvy-ness) in my atlas with an extra assist from my gps. This method is far from perfect and does not find low bridges, extreme grades, or sheer drop-offs on narrow roads with no shoulders. I don't like any of these things. Have any of you run into a good online or even printed source for this type of data?
Thanks in advance for your recommendations. Susie
