I was going to recommend AAA Trip Tik! That's what I used when we drove to WDW in 2008 and to D.C. last year. They have very good directions.

I work in the emergency road service dept and they told us not to use Mapquest. We do use google. I don't know what they use for the trip tiks but they are great maps.

I TripTiks.

I grew up with them for family road trips and we did a monster one 2 years ago to drive from Seattle, through Yellowstone, to Denver, Santa Fe, Grand Canyon and back.

Construction warnings and the works! It was right on the money.

I was stuck in that position and ... It took 4 strapping young boys to hoist me back on my feet
Personally, I'm a popper! I love me some black heads.

I didn't want to buy one before our huge trip...why pay all that money when I can get directions for free?

well, we got one as soon as we got home...and of course the scavenger hunt we were on was all my fault for not wanting to buy the gps in the first place.

I resisted the gps for a long time. My husband really really wanted one and I just thought it was a waste of money....well.....my husband is horrible with directions and since this is home state I was relying on him to get me places. Big Mistake. I ended up asking for the gps for my birthday this year....best present EVER.

I was anti-GPS for a long time, "What's the point?" I'd ask Joe just thinking he wanted ANOTHER gadget.

Then, last year, we got one for his Dad for Christmas, and Joe wanted to "test drive it" .

I was hooked! Love it!

I got a brand spankin' new GPS for christmas, too. But I could tell that Denny loved it so much, so I told him he could keep it and I would take the old one. Aren't I the best????? And he didn't even try to say no, either!
