A Cautionary tale:

This was the state of the A4 PC printed digital map

at the end of the wet walk.


On days like this keep them sealed in a poly-pocket, or laminate them, or use the waterproof paper that is now available.

Don't panic though . . .I always carry the original O.S. 1:25k big map hidden deep in the rucksack.

It helps with checking out long distance views and when taking long distance compass sightings . . .

oh yes . . . and coping safely with wet days !
