Is Google Maps good enough?
I'm a first-time tourer who was planning a Trans-Am and Pacific Coast tour.
I ended up modifying my plans, deciding to fly out to Pueblo, and start my tour from there. Now, my circumstances have changed again, and it looks like I might have to head out to Park City and stay there until around the 21st.
I still think I can go ahead with my tour, but I need to find some way to get from Park City to Rawlins, Lander, or some other place in Wyoming that will connect to the Trans America.
I've gone to Google Maps, and got a route using highway 80 that was 278 miles. If I checked the "avoid major highways" option, I added an additional 100 miles.
Is it wise to rely on Google Maps print-outs for this portion of my tour? Do I need to avoid highway 80?
