You could be right. There aren't many roads out west, so maybe they are easier to map. Big open spaces and great distances between population centers. I've never not found a road, though.

The CDR is a good example. some 2000 miles of linking farm and forest roads. The 'Forever West' tracks are another example. I bought the latter. Probably the only problem I've had is a) zooming out to high a scale following tracks, causing me to miss turns and b) having the targeted road be tough because of washouts from earlier weather.
