Yeah, even with a gps, it's nice having a map around. Thanks for the link op.... got a map of Nunavut just for fun (someday I'll make it there).

Agreed! I recently moved to Denver. It's nice having local maps in the glove box of both cars in case I get lost on a "local" trip and didn't bother to bring my Garmin.

Thanks OP

Thanks for the information.
My state will even mail the map to you for free - even though it is in the middle of a budget crisis.

Smart move. Anyone with a paper map is likely to spend more money in the state (as you drive around you'll feel free to make stops or side trips, since you can navigate back on course). The sales tax generated will pay for the maps.

People with GPS's are more likely to stay on course and not stray or explore.
