Mine is a newer revised edition, way better than the ones a few years ago. I've been very happy with it for trip planning and locating cool places I want to see. Like you, it's took me to some very interesting places

My favorite! Around here, we have old roads and rights of way dating back to the 1600's. The ones marked in the Gazeteer are usually still listed as town roads even if they are no longer in use...makes for some real adventures!

That's the way it is here, we have tons of old gravel, dirt roads and logging trails, I can find and explore them all. I do see a lot of red and green farm gates though!


There are interesting places everywhere, the Gazetteer helps me find them.

DeLorme also makes Street Atlas USA which is a great map DVD system. The scales on none of these maps is fine enough for me and my wanderings, but they provide the basis of going to Google Earth once you find the general jump off point to really plan your trip or figure out where in hell you were. Topo USA has been in my computer software aresenal for some time and again its useful for judging terrain and potential jump off or problem areas (less urban friendly, but great at showing roads that barely exist).

Man, that sure beats Google Earth, at least on my computer.



Thanks fer that.
Yeah, it's way better than google earth. In the top left corner click on "Bing Maps (with labels)" that will get you all the street and road names.
