I checked every single page, and there are no missing or duplicated pages in my copy.
The pages are fairly thin, and care is required when turning pages so as not to rip them out of the binding. I guess the publishers had to decide between having a monstrously heavy and thick (as well as tall/wide) book, or use thinner pages. Not a bad tradeoff, in my opinion.
One thing you should be aware of: Some of the print, especially in the mileage table and the index at the back of the book, is teeny tiny. If you can't read very small print, get a Fresnel magnifier at the very least -- that way you can use the magnifier as a bookmark so it's handy when you need it. :)
The large print makes it easy to see, and I love the spiral binding that allows it to lay flat. I use mine to plan our trips, looking for those "roads less traveled", as well as spots that are ideal for picnics. If you have never done a road trip where you pack your food and enjoy the scenery, then you haven't done a road trip! Skip the Interstates, avoid the fast food joints and take the back roads and hit up the roadside parks!
A Rand McNally road atlas is part of my adventure every year - make it a part of yours as well!
Some highly useful features: a mileage chart, showing the distance between major American cities; five delightful road trips (e.g., Historic Georgia); mileage and driving times on a map between lots of American cities and venues such as national parks.
The key part of this, though, is maps of the American states and larger cities. I opened a page at random and ended up in Colorado. It is cool to revisit some car trips. Visited my brother living just outside Denver. Drove down Route 25; ended up on Route 160--and a terrifying trip over Wolf Creek Pass (I am scared of heights!). Then--on to Kayenta, Arizona, the gateway to Monument Valley. It was neat reliving the trip! And a trip with my brother to Mount Evans. Wow! I had a standard transmission car and by the end of the road, all I had left to use was first gear!
Anyway, a nice addition to this legacy publication. . . .
