Meh! Lots of hype over this book, frankly a bulky over-commercialized magazine of adverts. Put it this way: it's about as inaccurate as a Lonely Planet book, with literally tonnes of adverts in it, hard to actually find the content of area you're in due to the glossy adverts which take up 80% of this book. Heavens knows why you have to buy one yearly except to get the latest adverts. PDF download was about the only thing I enjoyed and even then it wasn't a go-to reference it was a last resort on which restaurant has the BLING-iest advert.
Really useful if travelling to Alaska, Yukon. Has all the stops and places of interest on all the main roads in the area. So you know when the next rest area with wcs are, where you can fill up with petrol (gas), when the next site of interest is and so on. Well worth having.
Essential for anyone touring Northern & Western Canada (or Alaska). When travelling very remote areas and long distances the details given in The Milepost (updated annually) can make the trip work. Accommodation, petrol stations, cafes, bank machines and toilets can all be a very long way apart and if you get it wrong you can spend hours without eating or frantically hoping for a fuel pump. The Milepost gives you the exact mileages between services and tells you how long to give yourself to complete the journey. Don't risk making a mistake when you are 100 miles from the next village, with no phone reception and surrounded by bears!! My roadtrip across British Columbia and the Yukon totalled 5000 miles in 3 weeks and The Milepost worked like clockwork, both for extensive pre-planning and during the trip.
