I am looking for a good source to plan the best route to go to the Pocono Raceway w/ my fiver.
I want to make sure I don't get on a road that isn't rated for my rig. (don't think it will happen but I want to be sure) Also, I want to be on decent roads, esp local ones.
Thank for any help!
Ralph

go to a truck stop and pick up a copy of a truckers road atlas. The one I have has all of the road information in the front separated by state. It has alot of information regarding interstate and state highways as well as some tertiary roadways. I use it to make sure I do not run into any height and width issues (my rig is 13'1" high). It will tell you low height restriction, refer you to the map and where that restriction is.

it has very good maps to boot.
But I've been to Pocono many time. Your best bet is Rte. 80.

Like Kstar said, get a truckers atlas from virtually any truck stop store. Truck routes are highlighted with a yellow band along the highway. I can say with certainty deviating from the routes can cause a huge headache. I was lucky enough that I could turn my 40' 5er around in downtown Prescott,and go East towards Sedona. Oh well, I got to Quartzsite - finally.
