Where was the Dakota in Lockhart Basin? I seem to remember we got "lost" twice on one trip!
I think it is a matter of personal preference. I prefer the minimal technology approach, paper for me.
I discovered some very nice places while I have been lost. It is best to have a little extra gas in the tank though for the unexpected.
Yeah, we would have never found that nice dead-end box canyon if the technology existed back then. My gas tank doesn't have the extra miles anymore, so I like to avoid backtracking!
Where we mountain bike in France, half the roads are dead-ends, so without GPS we'd be wedded to the map, and still would end up riding in random motion! With it we've connected up a lot of loops
