When I think about it, it’s pretty amazing to consider all the experiences a sheet of printed lines and symbols can help facilitate.
A weekend of singletrack in the state forest, a spontaneous picnic lunch in a forgotten meadow with the family, a week of lake-side camping and fishing…
While I don’t necessarily remember thefirst time I picked up and actuallyuseda map, I do know that I rely on maps regularly. There are too many places with unreliable cell reception to think our digital resources can guide us, unwaveringly. But, with a map in hand and a few other necessary supplies, we can be unstoppable.
There’s something so real and tangible about marking up your map, trip after trip, trail after trail, to solidify the memory of an experience outdoors.
That is why I appreciate my old, trip-worn, well-loved map...and my crisp, ready-for-anything new maps, too.
