My B.O.B is pretty much good to go, but it became clear to me that I do not have a good map. One that would show roadways as well as natural features.

Does anyone know any website or specific brand of map that would have both of these included.

On that same train of thought i would also be interested to know if anyone has a map of NYC subway and sewer tunnels. That could definitely be useful too.

Get your map printed on Tyvek. It's strong, durable, waterproof, stores light, makes a great shelter, and is great for many, many other uses.

It's what the military uses.

I should know. It's what I trained with in SERE school.

Here's a link of the subway map. New York City Subway Map The page also has a link where you can download a pdf of the map. You can go to Kinko's or someplace like that and they can print off a copy for you.

get a gazetter for your state, or bug out rout. used by hunters and fisherman, very detailed. I have seen them at book stores, outdoor stores, ect.

I'll second the Gazetteer books. They really are quite detailed.

Also you could hit up USGS. Never ordered from them but they could probably provide whatever topo maps you're looking for also

ETA: Hey Trueman thanks for that, wasn't aware of Libre maps. Nice!

The gazatteer is an excellent resource, just be sure that you know how to read it and use a compass to determine your course and location. A good topo map contains a good deal of useful information and in the current trend to rely heavily on GPS these skills are being lost. If the SHTF, remember that the GPS satellites can be shut off or the accuracy can be altered intentionally with the stroke of a couple of keys.

Great site from the late great Ron Hood. I've learned a lot here.

Gazetteer Maps are awesome. I have several copies in all my vehicles and some older ones I keep just to look at.

Having ran a wholesale route and traveled Eastern NCand SouthSide Va...they are incredibly accurate... down to the dirt roads and dead ends.

They make great Xmas gifts too. Most people will wonder at first, but after a few minutes studying them... they like them best of all their gifts...really.
