Try out SMTrekkers Super-Maps Page

We were looking for a way to open up a bunch of online map resources all at once so that we can quickly scan them for possible camping locations while on the road.  The idea was that you could first select a state and then select a set of maps from a list of the best online maps and then those maps would pop open in new windows. You would then go to each map window and zoom into a particular area of interest.

The maps resources we added to the list are my favorite maps that we use when hunting for good boondocking or camping sites.  (I have yet to figure out how to zoom in automatically on a particular state in one of the map resource, so it opens to the full USA :-(   That is the Ultimate Campgrounds Map. The maps I have chosen to use may change as I find better online maps for our purposes.)

You can see the result on our new SMTrekkers Super Maps page.  I'm still working on it - so it's in Beta, so to speak.

Coming up: We took a visit to the "Meow Wolf" facility in Santa Fe.  The place is kind of a mix between Burningman, a modern art museum, a concentration camp, a music venue and a spaceship.

Note: We have another map page that has a lot of map resources for boondockers: Campsite Review Map.
