    Finally got my copy. I know several folks that go theirs way before me and ordered theirs after.... so it might just take a while....

    Good book though!!

    Ordered mine and 3 - 4 weeks one showed up. Then a week later another
    our tax dollars at work - gave the second to another ADV rider. Now today a 3rd. I love efficiency.

    Is this a test?

    Good Gawd ..... I totally forgot I posted in this thread aways back .... :huh

    I ordered one, got it, and was very surprized - It's nice. :D

    I'm going out to Santa Fe in 2 1/2 weeks to pick up the newest collection in the herd - and plan on noting down some routes and checking them out on my way back ......

    So ... anyone thinking about ordering one, should. It's free .... and they did a good job with it.

    That's my .02 cents .....

    I worked on some National Scenic Byways projects as a photographer. They spend tons of money on this, sending out a few guides is a drop in the bucket. I ordered the book, wonder if any of my pictures are in here. I know they were used in some of the brochures.

    Indeed a 463 page book. When it's icy out this winter and I start planning my vacation, I will break this out with some good bourbon whisky.

    Thanks!:freaky
