Map Reading and Where To Get Free Topo Maps and Apps

Do you have a road map in your car? A printed one?

The lost art of map reading. And the lost practice of having a physical map.


  1. Yay on this post, Bob. I thought I might be the only person left who could read a paper map. (Should have known better–of course there’s you.) One thing users of GPS & various apps never seem to notice is that a paper map gives you overall orientation. The big(ger) picture. Sometimes this is very useful! Anyway, thanks for lots of good info & reminders.

  2. Great post! I fear map reading is going the way of cursive writing.
