Russell and Wesley Mussio started the Backroad Mapbook Series in 1993. The brothers are avid backcountry explorers who love to pursue a variety of different activities. They came up with the idea when they realized it was rather cumbersome to cart a different book for each activity along with a stack of often-outdated maps.
