    Hey guys,

    I do a lot of driving all around this great state. I am sick and tired of interstate and major highways so I make it a point to take back roads from point A to point B. I don't care if it takes an extra hour or two, it doesn't matter. What sucks about when I am following my route on my Samsung Galaxy S4, as soon as I lose 4G, it is useless.

    So my question is, what is the best Texas road map you can recommend. I prefer a book form, not the one that folds out so I won't destroy it. I want detailed FM and RR roads. Thanks for the help!!!!

    There is a Mapsco book called Back roads of Texas or maybe its Roads of Texas. Every and I mean every road is on it. The back cover of the book has a large map with page numbers that cover a few counties each. Great tool and I have worn out 2 of them. This reminds me that I need to get another.

    This is the one you want.

    Just now noticed the prices. Go to Barns and Noble and they may have it in stock. If not then have them order it. I believe there is a newer edition but not 100%

    Before my family was introduced to the world of GPS, we used the laminated maps from Walmart....Randy Mcsomething..........I was pretty good at reading those maps, if I do say so myself.
