I’ve been drawing maps ever since the first time I turned the pages of The Hobbit, so many years ago. Tolkein’s legendary maps that lead Bilbo and his companions inspired the adventure inside of me as a boy. Using graph paper, I’d sit for hours drawing my favorite parts of Middle Earth. Over the years as I developed a love for hiking and mountain biking, I’ve sketched out my fair share of maps and trail guides on notebooks to look back on. Creating your own map is a great way to avoid getting lost, but more so to preserve good memories of a great adventure left behind. One of our favorite companies out of New York has introduced The Map Notebook ($20) to keep that spirit alive.
This 160 page notebook provides plenty of space for location information, travel notes, and a full page for every map you create. Even if you don’t have a grand adventure planned, the notebook could be used to draw your neighborhood, create a buried treasure route for your kids, or spend an afternoon daydreaming of The Lost Coast Of The Mighty Shipwreck Cove! Let your imagination run loose or keep your footsteps close at hand.
