How to Get Free Topo Maps – Map and Compass Skills – Video 1

Survival Skills
NOTCE** Much of the information about the USGS website I talk about in this video has been changed. I am leaving it up because you CAN still download free maps but the navigation through the website is way different now. I am going to try to make an update video soon. Also, honestly, if you can afford it I recommend buying a map if you plan to use it a lot. You can get a custom centered map in a range of scales from https://MyTopo.com These can be printed on water-resistant, tear-resistant paper that doesn’t need batteries and the price is fair. That is where I get any topo maps I need these days. They use the same USGS map database but they just do it better.
