    Default Road Atlas?

    We are trying to find a reasonably priced road atlas of the USA - coated pages (like some of the trucking atlases), spiral bound - does something like this exist?

    So far, I've found only paperback with coated cover, paperback spiral bound, and very expensive $75 trucker's coated pages.

    Thanks,


    Donna

    Maybe you underestimate the quality of paper on which atlases are printed. Even during an extended (6 months) trip, mine has shown little sign of wear, and I can't say I am exactly gentle with them, when I'm on the road. And I am still referring to it almost daily.

    As for spiral bound. I have seen spiral bound much cheaper than that at some truck stops. But don't ask where. I can't remember and have never bothered noting such details.

    Default Longevity

    The trucker's atlas would fit the bill of what you are looking for, but if your major concern is longevity, the regular paper atlases hold up quite well. For $5, you really can't beat the price/usability ratio.

    I bought a standard Rand McNally at Walmart for about 7 bucks. It will hold up fine.
