Do you have the maps that you need in physical format? You might not always be able to rely on Google maps or Garmin. As well, some maps can be an absolute wealth of information if you are searching for specific resources after the SHTF.
For today’s challenge, buy or print off local maps. As well, if you are planning to bug out, print off or purchase maps of that area too. Topography maps can help you locate things like bodies of water and can assist you in navigating if you’re on foot.
This article will help you locate the maps that you need.
This article will help you find resources near you.
It’s a good idea to have more than one copy of these kinds of maps. I keep them at home, in my car, and in my backpack. The one in my backpack is in a waterproof folder. (These folders are good for all sorts of things. I use them for all my important documents even inside my safe.)
Let’s talk about it.
What maps do you keep on hand? Did you locate some maps that might be useful to you? Do you have any suggestions for other maps preppers might want to keep on hand in physical format? Share your thoughts in the comments.
