If you’ve ridden the western side of North America in the last few years, then you may well have planned your trip with one of the excellent and comprehensive Destination Highways series of road guide books. However, you may also have realized that maybe there’s a tad more information in the book than can be easily absorbed when on the road.
Fear thee not, as the thoughtful souls at DH have opted to publish a series of ‘Companion Maps’ to go with their series of books. The first map to be published is Northern California and is 100% synthetic, waterproof and rip-proof. It’s also double sided so that you get a more detailed scale then most road maps out there offer.
The map highlights all the ‘DH’ roads listed in the guidebook, as well as the ‘worth checking out’ TE side-roads that can be handy for connecting the DH routes together. However, services, dealerships and accommodations are not shown — which is why it’s called a companion map, as it is meant to be used in conjunction with the book, which gives the more detailed info.
The NorCal companion map costs $29.95 (US or CAN), or $79.95 for the map and NorCal Destination Highways book (saving you $10) and can be ordered directly from destinationhighways.com.
