Checking out for a while by bike: Where would you bike? What would you bring?

If you could go on the ultimate bike trip, where would you ride? What would you bring with you? For Jasmine, it is her violin and her dog.

"The advantage of a paper map is you'll never need batteries or worry if you have coverage."

There are many advantages to carrying a paper map.  You can read them in bright sunlight.  You can hold them at arm's length, or hold them close to your nose.  You can use a pencil to draw notes or add roads or mark routes.

I've done a lot of traveling (http://gamut.neiu.edu/~rkastig1/bikehome.html) I started in 1993 when a paper map or copies was all that was available but then changed over to digital maps.  I can['t really explain this but I've found that paper is better - and it's hard to come up with a real reason why.

A decent paper map and a reliable compass should be in every traveler's kit.
