Michael Gillig Posted March 17, 2017 Report Share Posted March 17, 2017 So I started a search for a lake cabin up 'der in Wisconsin. Grew up in Minnesota so I really didn't have any idea just where all the lakes were in WI. Messed with Google Earth, got tired of zooming, got WI state HWY maps, they show roads and towns, missing my lakes. Tried and tried to google lake maps, the realtor's have hijacked this search Eventually I decided to just drill down in my searches. About page 15 I found Professor Higbee's Stream & Lake Maps. Ordered up a 4'x4' laminated copy, maybe $40. It's detailed and beautiful. if my wife didn't have veto power it'd be hanging on the living room wall. Simple truth is that one map saved me a year of poking around in WI to figure out where to go. Still has HWY's and county lines but they are pushed into the background to highlight the lakes. So I contacted the published, asked to get a copy of the two counties I am interested. He says just as soon as his new printer is up and running that will be easy as pie. They do Illinois. Wisconsin and a scattering of other states (Minnesota is coming), heck, if you want a wall size map they'll even churn on of those out. On the laminated version they put a couple of grommets in to make hanging easy. You can use those non-permanent type markers and write on it to your hearts content. If anyone is interested here's the link (and, no, I'm not affiliated with the map making industry) http://www.streammaps.com/showmap.php?id=SMWI Enjoy, Michael G Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
