Question Interstate Guide Books

Amxpress:

Quote:
There are a couple of good books you might want to check out.
"LAST EXIT" & "NEXT STOP".
They list all of the Interstate exits showing what is located at that exit. This includes highlighting facilities that are RV friendly such as gas stations and restaraunts.
We don't hit the (Interstate) highways without it.
Good Sam's makes the better book, in my opinion. Go to their website for more information.
Is there a reason why you prefer the Good Sam "Exit Now" guide book over "The Next Exit"?. From what I can see on the 'net & the CW catalog, Exit Now is spiral bound, so it'll sit flat on the seat or console.

Any other comments?

The Good Sam has features I like:

1. The "ring binder" design allows it to be left on the seat, or stowed in a pocket, without losing your place.

2. The content organization is not broken up by state. If going from MI to FL via I-75, you just turn to the I-75 section and follow it the entire route. No flipping around when you cross a state line.

3. Once accustomed to the Good Sam page layout, I think it's easier for aged eyes to read. BTW, my navigator handles the exit guides while I drive. I would NEVER consult either one while driving, much less towing.

But I like them both, really.

I think that has got to be the better idea.
