Great ideas
lets go baby
It's a fine book with which to fantasize.

The only thing I'd like to see, if it's to be updated, is to be more technologically "with it." The directions of turn right go .3 miles, turn left go over a hill... kind of directions are okay, but it would be so much better to include GPS coordinates and waypoints. I didn't notice a single latitude/longitude.

People like us geocachers who routinely wander through the backwoods of the country are wedded to our GPSr's.

With some WGS 84 data of the locations, the book would rock the house.

Next summer I plan to road trip many of these sites and rfelics. These places are fading fast and I want to see them before they are gone....
I bought this for my husband as a birthday present. He has enjoyed it, we'll be checking out some of these places soon!
