    I really like the Environmental and Social Impact guides. We don’t Roadschool but know a family that does. Each time we travel we try to put an educational side trip in about the environment or local social issues that are going on. Trips are not always about relaxing and having fun! I would use these guides to help plan my side trips. Love the Civil Rights issue as we live in the South.
