+as77 Posted July 13, 2004 Share Posted July 13, 2004 Reading the forums, it seems that many people love to have topo/aerial maps of the areas they are caching in. I somehow feel the opposite. Exploring an unknown area without any maps, just with a non-mapping GPSr is much more fun than having a detailed map and walking straight to the cache on the optimum route. (I'm talking about the hiking part, not the driving part.) So I think people who use topo maps miss much of the fun and the adventure. Without a map, you could bushwhack a lot, cross creeks, climb up and down steep hillsides, maybe you will have to turn around several times. With a topo or aerial map, you will probably just take an easy trail and rush to the cache in five minutes. But what's the point? Quote Link to comment
