Travel with safety – safety from knowledge and information about navigating through the Mountain Grades and Terrain. Read this author’s Mountain Directory.
From the Author’s Desk:
When customers find out that I’m from Kansas, they often say, “Kansas? What can you tell me about mountain passes if you’re from Kansas?” But after they hear my story, they cut me a little slack. (By the way, did you know that there was once a researcher with too much government grant money who determined that Kansas actually is flatter than a pancake?)
When I was a kid in the early 60’s my parents owned a 16 foot Mobil Scout travel trailer. We pulled that trailer all over the western United States and Canada with a 1962 Chevy with a 283 cubic inch engine and a three speed on the column. So I learned to love mountains and I learned to love traveling the wide open spaces of our great land. With that small trailer and the reliable Chevy, we never had any problems climbing or descending grades.
From the Site Owners;
I love this kind of traveling. My sister and myself with parents in tow at the young age of 1 to 3 years of age camped with tents across the western United States. I grew to love it just like the author of the above directory. I often wish I could just jump into a truck and head out. By the way, we first started in a 1941 Chevy so there! I can remember the water bags hanging on the front so we could refill the radiator and since tires cost a lot we changed many a flat. I think we drove the tires till they had nothing left. But that Chevy was still running when we finally sold it some time in the 60’s.
