Good tip Mel. Thanks. I wonder if the laminated maps I have will suffer so much at the fold lines? I just can't bring myself to put creases in my precious map yet.

I have precisely no maps with covers.  I have a small box in the boot of my car from which I painfully extract the relevant maps when I set off on a walk. It takes about 12 seconds. It's really not worth worrying about.  Folding maps is necessary, unless you photocopy or print the bits you need, and leave the original map at home.

Don't worry.  You'll soon overcome that and see creased, stained, and generally dog-eared maps as a thing of beauty and wonderful memories  O0
