I wonder if you guys have thought about including maps for use whilst on the road? Ones that can be detached from the book and put into the top of tank bags or a plastic pocket perhaps.

I've photocopied and reduced the size, fits perfectly and saves the book!

Yeah I had to scan and print off a couple for our trip to Jindabyne (two more sleep s btw). I just thought it would be nice to use maps with all the colour and detail of a published copy. But then, perhaps that's just me being a little too anal! :geek:

We thought about doing that but in the end decided against it as most people we spoke to about it said they'd rather copy the maps and take them with them than pull the book apart.
If we were to make extra pull out maps it would have cost almost twice as much and guess what.... No book :wink:
