"Along I-75, 19th edition"
Dedicated to the 100th Anniversary of the
National Park Service.
"Along Florida's Expressways, 4th edition"
We are so proud that VISIT FLORIDA, the Sunshine State's official tourism authority, has endorsed this book as the one it uses in its Welcome Centers.
Starting with our first (1992) edition, here are the covers of our books over the years.
The "upside-down" book with two front covers. Our first edition, now worth US$155 on the First Edition collectors market.
We changed the metal spiral binding to plastic.
The last of the "upside-down" books.
Completely redesigned - this book won the prestigious "Excellence in Design" award.
We won Writers Digest "Certificate of Merit" with this one.
Another great year helping our I-75 traveler friends.
The first of the textured cover books.
The year Georgia decided to change all their exit numbers. This book included both old and new numbers on our maps.
To ensure a major book chain catalogued our book correctly, we had to remove the year from the front cover - this one became known as our "9th" edition.
10th (2002) Edition
The first of our "themed" covers - the 25th anniversary of the completion of I-75.
11th (2003) Edition
Dedicated to the Wright Brothers of Dayton, Ohio.
12th (2004) Edition
Dedicated to the 200th Anniversary of Steam Locomotion.
13th (2005/6) Edition
Dedicated to the 100th Anniversary of the publication of Mrs. Mileva Marity-Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity.
Florida - 1st (2006) Edition
Our First edition of "Along Florida's Expressways. Personally requested by Florida's Governor Bush because so many Floridians used "Along I-75" to evacuate ahead of Hurricane Charley in 2004. Jeb wanted a Florida freeway evacuation guide . . . so we delivered.
14th (2007) Edition
Dedicated to the 100th Anniversary of 400th Anniversary of the founding of Jamestown - the first permanent European settlement in North America. How could a historian ignore such an occasion?
Florida - 2nd (2008) Edition
"Along Florida's Expressways" - completely re-designed to better match the needs of driving tourists. After driving around Florida on a vacation, I didn't like the first edition which was rushed into production to help with hurricane evacuation - so I re-designed it!
15th (2008) Edition
Dedicated to the 2010 Alltech AFE World Equestrian Games, held in Lexington, Kentucky.
3rd (2009) Edition
The 3rd edition of "Along Florida's Expressways" just gets better and better. As the state's population grows, the services available at various exits, expand . . . and so does the book.
16th (2010) Edition
Dedicated to the Centenary of Carl Fisher's first Indianapolis 500-Mile Race.
17th (2012) Edition
