6/11/19- UpdateThank you for your previous order of Idaho's New Guidebook "Discovering Idaho's Scenic Drives and Backroad Treasures".
We know you were expecting delivery any day now. Quality takes time and ultimately, creation of the book has taken significantly longer than we anticipated. We are back on track now, the book looks fabulous, and barring any delays during the printing process, we are estimating arrival for the 1st week of August.
The books are shipping from the print facility this Friday and will arrive at our Twin Falls storage facility Monday Aug. 5th. We will start shipping wholesale orders on Aug. 6th and direct sales on Aug. 8th. We have three book release parties planned, one for Twin Falls, one for Meridian and one for Coeur d'Alene. To receive info about those please enter your email address at the bottom of this page or join our Facebook book group here.
The book has arrived! We think it looks great! We will begin shipping early next week!
Books have been shipped or delivered to 37 stores statewide. Check out the list here.
We've had 5 book signing events to date and more coming. Check out the schedule Here.
We have sold through approximately 1/2 of our inventory, or over 2000 copies of the book in just 4 months! Falls and Christmas sales were strong and we are excited to hear feedback from book owners and sponsors as the spring and summer travel season commences.
We can't believe how great our book is doing! We now have books at 57 Idaho retailers, on Amazon and available through this website. We're working on an application to Barnes and Noble. We're really excited for people to get out traveling and start sharing route photos with our Facebook book group which currently has over 3200 folks in it!
Idaho is under a "stay home order" from the governor until April 15th. We hope you use this time to browse the book and make some future travel plans. We're still hoping for a great travel season after the ban is lifted. Sadly, many of our retailers have had to close during this time, so please order through our website for complimentary media mail shipping through April 15th, 2020.
Response to our guidebook has been phenomenal! As we go into this holiday shopping season we are on track to sell out sometime in spring 2021. Just announced today we're having a Thanksgiving week sale of $5.00 off per book as a way to say Thank you! Our FB group now has over 5000 members, which is great considering we only printed 4000 books. LOL!
We are down to our last few cases of Scenic Drives guidebooks! We never could have anticipated they would go so fast. We expect our 2nd edition to be available in late summer, 2021. Thank you!
The 2nd edition guidebooks are here! It's got a new cover and a few new stops on several routes, corrections, etc.
Help and FAQ
Corrections to 1st Edition
Table of Contents- Photo on right side is incorrectly captioned as Lily Grade, route 42, when it is in fact Balanced Rock Grade, route 42.
Route 4- Page 24, photos for points 16 and 14 are switched and should read 14 and 16.
Route 5- The old truck shown on page 31 (point #9) is no longer there.
Route 6- Page 36, photo #1 should be #8 and #8 should be #1.
Route 22- The book map is missing points 24-26. The online map is correct.
Route 34- Page 180, The book reads: "At the north edge of town, turn left onto Little Wood Reservoir Road. Go .5 mile to Pioneer Cemetery (9) on your right, then continue north on Little Wood Reservoir Road for about 11 miles, keeping left at the ‘Y’."
Disregard the directions of "keeping left at the 'Y'".
The following section should read:
Continue north a little over 4 miles to road marked High 5 and turn left. Continue on this road down the Little Wood drainage and stay left after crossing the bridge. Cottonwood trees line this creek (11) and there are several campsites. This is a dead end loop, so retrace your route and stay on the High 5 road for about 1 mile past the bridge that you crossed when dropping into the drainage.
Route 40- Page 213, the photo in the upper left corner should be labeled as #21 (Cauldron Linn).
Route 43- Page 231, map point numbers 17 and 18 should be reversed. Point #3 (barn) is now gone.
Route 46- Page 247, FS Rd. 113 should be FS Rd. 213.
