This is the second time in three days that Woodall’s information has been wrong. Does anyone verify the information they print or post. I was traveling north on I-25 in New Mexico and decided that Storrie Lake State Park looked like a fine place to spend a few days on my way farther north. Flipping open the brand new 2012 Woodall’s book, it contained the following entry. “From town: Go 6 mi NE on Hwy 104.”
This aggravated me immediately, have you ever heard of something called an exit number mister publisher? So I gently continued on I-25 and finally saw the Las Vegas exit for 104. At the end of the ramp there is a sign pointing one way for Hwy 104, mind you you’re never in a town to leave from. After driving 15 miles into nowhere I figured something was wrong.
Retrace to top of exit ramp, no 104 only goes one direction from here, so I wandered into town a bit down the road away from 104. I saw one (only one) sign pointing to the campground. To make a long story short, after three turns on Hwy 518 I stumbled onto the campground. Checking Woodall’s online system later, I found it also tells you to follow 104. I guess no one from Woodall’s ever tried to follow their own direction. There is nothing on 104, absolutely nothing.
I have checked many entries and it does appear Woodall’s has something against exit numbers as well as assuming you are coming from a particular direction. (East as opposed to west, south as opposed to north. Worthless – money down the drain, their online system is no better
Sounds like all too many of the posts I've read on various forums.... using 'Hiway 226' or 'Route 40' or just a number, instead of the much more accurate & informative state name like 'NC 80', or 'US 25' or 'I-81'. Both maps and road signs provide this information.
