Default Paper Topo Maps

I have a box of over 100 topo maps of many areas of BC. From 40s to 00s, these were collected over the years by one of our local trail builders . Anyone interested in taking the lot of them?

I'd love any north shore ones that might still be available.

I have acquired some from Matt that I would be happy to share.

There are many duplicates. I would be happy to share the doubles with anyone, however, I warn you that this is not a fast process so if you want them they are yours... just remind me in 5 months (likely will take me months as categorizing old maps is tedious...)...I have found two first edition topo maps in the set though which is quite cool!

Thanks Matt!!

adm never knew he would suddenly become so popular overnight...

You know, there are many of us who collect useful maps. It would be a neat project to have a listing somewhere of what kind of maps people have (that they'd be willing to share library-style). That said, I get kind of possessive about my stuff, as borrowed things sometimes have a way of not being returned. Hmm. Maybe a meet-up group where we do a Map-show-and-tell over beers.
sidetrip and adm like this.

Haha who wouldve thunk it, people on a hiking forum into maps !

I do love my maps but as these were gifted to me, I am more than willing to share with others!

I would like to keep the historic one and the first editions, but some areas (for example old city maps of Chilliwack) have less meaning to me and I would gladly part with them. (As well as the previously mentioned duplicates)

Remind me you want some and bump the thread in a while, or else they are joining the others on the wall :
