My wife and I may be contestants on a reality road race that has us navigate cross-country. Each day we will need to drive to a destination that could be a small town, or a large city. The goal is to arrive at our destination each day in the fastest allotted time. Smart phones will not be allowed (we will be given a flip phone), so we will have to rely solely on paper maps.
What would be your advice on the types of paper maps that we should get that would help us 1. Navigate via interstate, as well as in the various cities. 2. Quickly identify the fastest/shortest route between locations 3. Quickly find gas/food along the way so we can get back on the road.
The obvious choice is the ubiquitous Rand McNally Road Atlas, but I wonder if there are other better options or suggestions out there.
If you have any other tips or suggestions that could help us on this cross-country road-race, it would be greatly appreciated.
