My Locale NEOH
About Me I started backpacking in the Northeast in high school with 3 buddies where we had quick access to the AT (Hertlein campsite). Continued through college and dropped off during the family-building years. Got back into camping with my sons and Cub Scouts which just fueled the need for more backpacking. Getting out on weekend+ trips for the past few years and loving it all over again.

Re: Annotating Maps on Water/Tear Resistant Paper (pen, pencil, markers????)
I have had no issues with a fine tipped Sharpie on the Nat Geo adventure paper. I usually find myself putting mile markers and other points of interest on after I have printed it.
