Mountain Directory ebooks – In an attempt to make mountain driving a little safer for truckers and RV’ers, R&R Publishing Inc. has collected and published this information about mountain passes and steep grades since 1993. The Mountain Directory Ebooks gives the locations and descriptions of over 700 mountain passes and steep grades in 22 states. The Mountain Directory ebooks tells you where the steep grades are, how long they are, how steep (%) they are, whether the road is two lane, three lane, or four lane, if there are escape ramps, switchbacks, sharp curves, speed limits, etc.
Now know ahead of time what a pass is like, then make an informed decision about whether to go over or around. Knowing what lies ahead is half the battle in mountain driving.
Introducing the Mountain Directory Ebooks!
Imagine yourself going down a mountain in your RV. Unfortunately, you didn’t know there was 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. The engine is not quite holding back all the weight, the brakes are smelling hot or even smoking, you’re pushing harder on the brake pedal but your speed keeps increasing. All you can see ahead are more mountain. Your mind is racing through all of the available options and none of them are good.
“I’ve got to do something,” you say “or I’m not going to make it.” The options include: run into the rock wall, go over the side, hit those trees, or see if you can make the next curve and ride it out. In this case you choose the last option. If you are lucky, and you make it to the bottom in one piece. And finally you pull over, while you’re waiting for your heart to stop pounding, you wipe the sweat from your face, your mouth is dry, and your hands are shaking. Thinking, “Had I only known it was going to be like that”.
