"The Next Exit" book
One of our favorite travel companions is a book entitled THE NEXT EXIT. It lists every exit along interstate highways and includes a listing of what is located at each of those exits and on what side of the interstate they are located. It lists by brand all gas stations, fast food and restaurants, lodging and "other" which includes hospitals, Wal-Marts, RV parks, etc. It also lists all rest areas and the facilities at each of them, i.e., rest rooms, handicapped facilities, phones, vending machines, picnic tables, litter barrels, pet walks, RV dump stations, security cameras, etc. We find it invaluable when we are pulling our travel trailer and just plain helpful when we are traveling without the trailer. The cost is $14.95 for the 2010 edition and is available the Amazon.com as well as many RV dealerships. Amazon.com has the 2009 edition for $10.76 and ships it for free.
