Road maps

Richard J Porter… Some of us still do.

Judy Atkinson… I love a map. You find places you didn’t know you wanted to go

Lyn Farkley Appleyard… I love maps….so reliable too

Fiona Evans… I prefer maps !

Will Cornell… I have a huge collection going back to my road rep salesman days and earlier. Including some from overseas. Wonder what they may be worth? Note: if any of you travel over here in the US via our highways, as you enter each state on interstates and major roads there will usually be an official welcome center with rest rooms, vending machines, free hot coffee or tea (thank you Louisiana for Community Brand), and brochures from famous tourist attractions in the state. They will also give you a free state issued road map, usually along with a state travel guide book, just sign their guest book with info like name, email addr, destination and where you’re from. I hope this practice never goes away. GPS sucks–good maps are a blessing.

Iris Feighan… I would rather use a map any day

Drew Barney… Which I didn’t take out on a run & frequently got lost. Now my watch takes me home, not a good samaritan in his car!

Elaine Stock… We still use maps, so much more reliable than a sat nav x

Mike Vawdrey… Even if you make the odd mistake while perfecting a route it’s still much more fun – and ultimately satisfying – working things out for yourself. I also have an extensive collection of maps/street plans from too many years ‘on the road’. However more curiosity than monetary value I’m afraid. In any case doesn’t satnav rely on all that space junk circling the Earth ?
