The Mountain Directory is a place for all people that have RV’s and have dreamed of taking their motor home all over the United States. Below is an excellent resource to use when you want to know the height and other needed knowledge when you are traveling.
The Mountain Directory is an attempt to make mountain driving a little safer for truckers and RV’ers, R&R Publishing Inc. has been collecting and publishing information about mountain passes and steep grades since 1993. The Mountain Directory Ebooks give the locations and descriptions of over 700 mountain passes and steep grades in 22 states.
The Mountain Directory ebooks tell you where the steep grades are, how long they are, how steep (%) they are, whether the road is two lane, three lane, or four lane, if there are escape ramps, switchbacks, sharp curves, speed limits, etc. With this information, one can know ahead of time what a pass is like and make an informed decision about whether to go over or around. If you decide to go over, perhaps the cool morning hours would ease the strain on the engine and transmission during the climb. Unhooking the towed vehicle would make the climb and the descent easier. Knowing what lies ahead is half the battle.
Travel with safety – safety from knowledge and information about navigating through the Mountain Grades and Terrain. Thus, with this Directory, you can show your children that you really do know where you are going and what you are doing. With that out of the way, get ready to have the life you have always wanted, going where you want in safety and security. Just follow this book and check out where you want to go and the best way to get there, keeping in mind the height of your vehicle and the weight.
Of course, you also have to check out the weather, because that will have a great deal of importance in your travel. For example, check out the weather history for the area you are going to. With the recent change in Tornado Alley, becoming Tornado Freeway, check to see if there are any storms on the horizon.
