Some directories work better in print. Truckers can't take just any exit. They are driving a 70' long rig, weighing up to 80,000+ lbs. They want fast, logical, simple information and they want it free from distractions. This guide provides exactly that. This is the only truck stop directory (printed or otherwise) that allows you to see virtually every “park-able” truck stop/travel center/rest area for hundreds of miles on a single page in seconds. It's designed as a quick reference tool to provide you with basic transit critical data, the locations of travel plazas or rest areas in sequential order, the size of the parking area, and whether or not the facility has a scale or repair services.
Not just for truckers. Most truck stops are actually referred to as travel plazas these days. They're million-dollar facilities that offer far more than the old truck stops your parents remember. This is why so many other drivers besides truckers use it. RVers love it, as do a lot of families with kids and pets. If you are in a storm or dense fog, if you’re in a small town and need to find a scale or diesel, if you’re getting drowsy or if you’re just plain hungry and need to stop, you can always find the next best place to stop instantly.
We love digital stuff as much as anyone, but this printed directory is faster than any device, and often more reliable. You don't need a signal, there are no popups and banner ads, there aren't any security questions, you don't need to pinch to zoom, etc. Besides, when the apocalypse comes, you'll be really glad you have it.
Drivers are reminded to never use this guide if their vehicle is moving, and they are behind the wheel. Safety first.
