    So I am trying to find a way to avoid all "hard" paved roads ;) is there any map programs that you are able to select options that avoid using any paved roads? I know there are tons of them In my area but I would like to be able to select to go to say, nacona. And get there entirely by dirt and gravel roads.. Any suggestions? I know they sell a garmin that can do this but I don't have the money to drop on one..

    Not that it makes a difference or that it's any of my business but, is there a reason you want to avoid a paved service?

    Because I am in a business that we have to avoid public roads I need to stay out of public view and on roads that I can use my trucks off roading ability to out run in wanted followers its not like it la illegal just so e people seem to not like me doing it and try to chase me down.. I try to avoid the people though so I don't break anything I happen to have in the back while going faster trying to get away from said people..
