9781894979788: Drive I-95: Exit by Exit Info, Maps, History and Trivia, Second Edition

Road trips are back and to help those who travel up and down the East coast, Drive I-95 is a new style of guidebook which combines colorful easy-to-follow pictorial maps and fun stories.

Look ahead exit by exit to see which motels (with 800 numbers), gas stations, restaurants, campgrounds, 24-hour pharmacies, radio stations or radar traps are there.

This husband and wife share stories: history on I-95, museums, trivia, towns to explore or places to run the kids. These can be read for entertainment during the drive, and may entice motorists to stop, stretch their legs and discover someplace new.

About the Author:

No one was more surprised and delighted than Sandra Phillips-Posner when her first book, Smart Shopping Montreal, quickly climbed onto the best seller list and remained there (with its annually updated editions) for the past 18 years. Having spent 10 calm years as an art teacher (with a Masters degree in Art and Education from Queens College/CUNY), Sandra’s life took an interesting turn following this success. This native New Yorker was offered her own column, which has run for 14 years, in Montreal’s newspaper The Gazette. She has also become a regular on talk radio, TV talk shows and the nightly news, and has gained popularity as a lecturer.

Stan Posner is actually an actuary who fell in love with both Sandra and computers. He has owned a computer consulting business since 1984 and has done work with such companies as Raytheon, Honda, Bombardier and Atomic Energy of Canada. He has also spent many years teaching actuarial math at Concordia University, after having graduated with Honors in Math from McGill University. Stan is the computer guru for their Travelsmart publishing company.

Sandra and Stan's passion for learning and travel has taken them to 17 countries, 43 U.S. states and all 10 Canadian provinces. During and after their adventures, they report for travel radio, e-zines and print media.

Their newest project, Drive I-95, a map/guide book, is the perfect combination of Stan’s love of maps and his computer expertise together with Sandra's delightful insightful blurbs. After 26 years of marriage, and even after spending 10 hours a day for 8 weeks in the car together doing the research for this book, they are still crazy about each other. They have a way of making travel both informative and fun.
