Mountain Road data

A while back I came across a link on this forum for some sort of detailed guide on mountain roads, including grade information. I think it was split into East and West versions. Can't seem to track that link down. Since I'm a flatlander and heading to the hills of Arizona, any help would really be appreciated.

On a more general note, I can't thank all of you enough for what I'm learning just browsing the forum. Not a day goes by that I don't soak up something useful.

Hi

I think you're looking for the "Mountain Directory" talked about at
http://www.rvtechstop.com/articles/mtndir.pdf



The link says you can get it at Camping World, if there's one in your area.
I do see the Western Volume online at:R & R PUBLISHING 3518 Mountain Directory West - ProductPlace.net. Norway

It's well worth the money. I bought mine at Barnes & Noble. Really great descriptions of roads & hwys with steep grades, tight turns and switch backs.

It's too bad poor road conditions are not tracked on a central data base. I-90 westbound, just east of ID is terrible, worst than CA.

Thanks for all the good info. I ordered mine on Amazon yesterday. Should be here in time for the big trip out West.

Thanks again.

My wife uses these daily when we are planning anywhere around mountains, They are great. Easily set up with maps and numbers to text detail.

I am assuming that you will not be traveling US34 (Trail Ridge) in Colorado.

Enjoy your journey

I'll miss Colorado altogether. The only mountain challenge should be coming out of Flagstaff AZ heading for Prescott. It's a long drop but good roads, at least as I recall it when I was much younger and had a sports car!

There is also a very scenic road from falstaff to Sedona, do not take that. Stay on i17.

Thanks. I'm aware of that nightmare. I'm taking the big wide I 17 route. My Mountain Aire is not a sports car --- and I'm not young and daring anymore. In aviation, they say "There are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but there are no old, bold pilots". Probaby applies to us RV jocks too.
