The Next Exit
« on: May 12, 2014, 07:24:24 pm »
If you are traveling on any Interstate Hwys The Next Exit is a must.  Ours is an '07 Edition, but that is kinda like a Road Atlas.  They don't really get out of date, they just get dogeared.  It is handy dandy to be able to look ahead and know what services are ahead of you.

Ours is a 2007 Edition but it still is OK.

We will be looking for Chewacla State Park, and now know to take Exit 51 "E".  We also know that there is a Waffle House on the West side where we can get breakfast the next morning.  :)

Cool. I'll have to pick one up. I passed a town with nice hotels and restaurants one time and decided we'd go on to the next town with the same size dot on the map as the one with the nicer amenities. The lesson that was learned is just because the map dots are the same size, they might not have nearly comparable places to stay/eat.

Yup, I have kept one in my truck for years. It comes in handy for finding stations with diesel.

In the past I was lucky to have travelled quite a bit. Funny thing about looking at those symbols that denote the size of a town. we associate those dots for fuel, lodging, and other ammenities. Some of those symbols are associated with qualities of highways.

Upon arriving in the backsides of Colorado, Wyoming, South Dekota, etcwe soon learned that a town that had maybe 5000 people, back East would only have a 100 or so inhabitants. Lucky that we had fuel in reserve along with other supplies because all we found many times was a fuel pump on a closed down store. Sometimes there was less.

On motorcyle trips some of those roads were large gravel that wa quite dangerous. So why travel them? Because we would have to backtrack 70 or 100 miles of good roads or cross 50 miles of gravel. The return route could require 300 miles.

So why don't they have a uniformity in those symbols?

We used it a lot coming across the states but in WA and AK we were not on interstate and it is of no use in that case.
