Those are your essential tool in any RoadTrip planning process. Start by marking all the places you know you want to visit. Then connect the dots. Then look for more places of interest and scenic routes along the lines connecting the dots. Repeat until you've got as many sites and roads as you think you want.
    Good detailed maps are invaluable when planning a road trip and essential when on the road. Don't be tempted to rely solely on your electronics. Many have done so at their peril - some fatal.
