Maps and Route. Although not a blog I thought the route might be of interest to anyone considering the same venture
Maps - previously I have used Rand McNally and have bought along my old 2000 one! However I have a US friend who is a member of the Triple A, our AA. They provide free maps to all their members so she went and got me a whole pile of these for all the states I may visit. They are a larger scale than RM and have two states per sheet, one each side. Very easy to fold and use. Like RM they also have the scenic routes indicated with dotted lines and this is my main means of route planning. I am using the Maps with me app (see separate thread) to see where I am on the route as this does not need a phone signal which I rarely have had enroute
I toured round Washington State for a week by car with my friend. Mt Rainier and Yakima area. I also had two weeks in BC and Alberta.
The route this trip however:-
Mon. - get to Everett to collect MH after 2pm. Stock up and crash out in rest area on 5
Tue - WA. 530 n to 20 then east through North Cascades Nat park. Over Washington pass ,stunning, to Okanogan
Wed - continue 20 east to Newport on Idaho border
Thur - today. ID2 up river Pend and 200 round the lake and SE down Momtana to Plains. Then MT 28 to Flathead lake and 93 north to Kalispell.
The 89 Route to the Sun through Glacier Nat Park is closed at the summit but I am hoping tomorrow to be able to drive in 20 odd miles to Big Bend. The Internet sayes I can. We will see.
