My son used one of these maps to track my PCT thru-hike journey with my young granddaughter so she could put stickers to mark my progress. It enabled her to be involved in my hike and better understand what I was doing. Fantastic! Plus, I kept a second map for myself to frame as a memento of a great experience. Love the larger size for both purposes.
