Large US Road map, available? Need to show my tour route

I'd like to purchase a large map that I can show my tour route on. It's a combination of ACA Transamerica sections as well as some routing I picked out myself using Google maps, going from San Diego to Boston.

Basically what I'm looking for is like a large-ish political map, like that had in school, but that shows roads in enough detail that the routes I'm taking would show up. Does such a beast exist? I want to show people the route I'm taking but I'm having real difficulty finding a way to do it.

Thanks, I might use it if I can't find an alternate option. That one is surprisingly a little TOO detailed.

I post all my motorcycle trips on a US Highway map from National Geographic's online store. Mounted it to a matt board to hang on the wall. Not as detailed as a state map by itself, so I sometimes have to freehand smaller roads along the way.
