Introducing the Mountain Directory Ebooks!
A guide that attempts 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 is a guide that tells you where the steep grades are. It will also tell you how long they are, how steep (%) they are. And whether the road is two lane, three lane, or four lane. Are 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. Furthermore, unhooking the towed vehicle would make the climb and the descent easier. Knowing what lies ahead is half the battle.
A Very Useful Guide
Imagine yourself descending a mountain grade in your RV. You didn’t know there was such a long, steep grade on this highway. What a surprise! And things are not going well. You have a white-knuckle grip on the steering wheel.
“Rvers traveling to new locations often meet unforeseen and possibly dangerous challenges in mountainous terrain because they could not know what type of road lay ahead. Atlases may mark elevation, but not how steep and how many miles a grade is, whether or not there are turnouts, and the condition of the road. Mountain Directory West and Mountain Directory East give locations and detailed descriptions of almost 700 mountain passes and steep grades in 22 states. This guide enables drivers to plan safer and easier routes, or to be prepared to face the grade.” Highways
