A Must-Have SUV Backcountry Guide Book
By Del Albright, BlueRibbon Ambassador
If you like maps, GPS coordinates, a bit of history, and great description of trails, then I’ve found the guidebook for you. “Backcountry Adventures” by Peter Massey and Jeanne Wilson (Swagman Publishing, Inc.) is truly the ultimate guide to the backcountry in several western states for anyone with a sport utility vehicle. I now have the entire set. I won’t leave home without them!
I find these guide books to be user-friendly, complete, and very importantly, accurate. I have verified many of the trails portrayed in the several of the states. These guidebooks don’t lead you astray. I also like the fact that there are plenty of pictures to peek my interest in trails I’ve yet to do. The Utah guide book for example, includes over 500 photos.
Each volume in the Adventures series covers an entire state or a distinct region (such as southern California). In addition to the meticulously detailed route directions and maps, these full color guides include extensive information on the history of towns, ghost towns, and regions passed along the way. You’ll also find wildlife photos to help you identify and enjoy the critters you might see along a trail.
I have personally reviewed the Utah, Southern California, Colorado, and Arizona books. I am impressed.
Add these guide books to your travel bag and you won’t be disappointed. They also make a great gift for your wheeling friends!
