Waterproof printer paper

There's a product that seems to be only available in the UK, Toughprint, a waterproof paper you can use with a laser printer. Sounds ideal for those of us who don't want a GPS. Anybody know if there's a US supplier?

This topic is perfectly timed for me as I will be taking my first trip w/o the benefit of being on a ACA route this coming summer and I was getting ready to tear pages out of the map books I bought.

I have a question that comes to mind ; Is the standard ink for a ink jet printer or copier not water soluble? I had thought it was.

The ink is soluble but the paper is different.  I have the Nat Geo paper and it feels like coated paper.  My guess is the "coating" somehow binds to the ink so it won't run.  I've submerged mine in water and there is no noticeable loss of iink.
