Road trips are back again, because by traveling in the security of your won car and visiting friendly small town America, it brings back the way America used to be and the way we would like it to be again. To help those who travel up and down the East coast, Drive I-95 is a new style of guidebook. It combines colorful easy-to-follow pictorial maps and fun stories, eliminating the trepidation of a road trip down America s busiest highway. Travelers can look ahead exit-by-exit to see which motels and gas stations are coming up, where the radars trap are or where to stop for a good homemade meal. The drive from Boston to Miami or any section in-between will become more pleasant and less stressful by knowing where to find: 24 hour gas stations (and which ones have a mechanic!) and pharmacies, 800 numbers for motel chains, camp grounds, golf courses, places that allow pets, shopping malls, supermarkets, internet availability and even which radio stations to tune to. This husband and wife team share stories of the road: history that happened on it, quirky museums worth a visit, Americana trivia, homey towns to explore, or places to run with the kids and pets. These can be read for entertainment during the drive and may entice motorists to stop, stretch their legs and discover someplace new. The maps and the fun stories of the road are useful for family travelers (Christmas, Spring break or summer), seniors, salesmen, truckers, campers and RVers, University students and their parents, military personnel and people who live and work near I-95

About the Author:

Sandra Phillips-Posner s first book, Smart Shopping Montreal, quickly climbed onto the best seller list and remained there (with its annually updated editions) for the past 20 years. Having spent some 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 ran for 16 years in Montreal s newspaper The Gazette. She has also become a regular on the noon news, talk radio and TV talk shows, 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 28 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.

Review:

I didn t think the authors could improve on their Drive I-95 guide, but this new edition is clearly superior. This intrepid couple has researched every exit between MA and FL. If there is a medal for this kind of work, I believe they ve earned it 10 times over. --SPENCER RUMSEY, Newsday

Are we there yet? If you're on Interstate 95, Drive I-95 can tell you ... where to sleep, eat and take breaks up and down the East Coast. --JUNE WULFF, The Boston Globe

Having the travel guidebook called Drive I-95 in your automobile is like having a guardian angel along for the ride. --ROY BARNES, associatedcontent.com
