When you buy a Purple Lizard map, it comes in a clear bag. But this isn't any old bag, it is an archival quality map sleeve, the same type used by museums and rare book libraries to safeguard their most precious vintage maps. We hope that when you take your new Lizard Map out of this bag the first time, that you slide one of your old favorite maps back into it for safe keeping.
If you're like us, you might have more than a few vintage maps stuffed in desk drawers or kicking around in old boxes in the garage, basement or attic. If you really care about preserving those old maps, you should store them in one of these archival sleeves.
We sell a pack of 25 sleeves for $7.50 if you have a larger collection you want to safeguard for the future.
The sleeves measure 4.5 x 10 inches to the reusable adhesive strip. They can be used to store longer maps without closing the flap; maps up to 9.75 inches long will fit with the flap closed.

Just like two days off are better than one, two Lizard Maps are better than one!
Our Dolly Sods-Seneca Rocks and the Elkins - Otter Creek Lizard Maps cover the northern tier of Monongahela National Forest. These two maps are designed to work together, they are the same scale and overlap by an inch to help you transition east to west. And west to east, because once you dive into these amazing back roads you won't want to stop exploring!
In addition to both West Virginia Lizard Maps we'll include one of our Lizard 75 stickers - this is the Forest Service road sign for the dirt road across the high plateau of Dolly Sods Wilderness, also called the 'Road across the Sky'. When you get there you'll understand why.
Check out this blog on exploring the northern tier to get an idea of what's out there. And this is just a tiny bit!

There are thousands of miles of trails and backroads waiting for you, so be sure to request some time off from work; all these maps will make you a bit antsy to get out and explore. The Pennsylvania Adventure Pack also makes a great gift for your fellow adventures, or perhaps as a not-so-subtle hint for your couch potato friends to remind them there is life beyond the remote control.
Looking for ideas to explore our PA maps? Check out the PA Fall Adventure Guide and the other downloadable Lizard Adventure Guides that accompany each map, and be sure to look through the blog archives for our hikes and ride stories.
Health warning: continued use of these maps may result in an inability to stay indoors and a sudden criticism of traffic. Your skin may become covered with dust and dirt. Mild confusion will make it difficult to relate time and distance, which may alter your definition of weather. There is a potential for all of these side effects to occur simultaneously and without warning. That's why we are warning you now.
