I agree, free is generally best.  However, in the slow internet access
world of backroad Richmond, I can't possibly wait for those maps to load
when I'm browsing.

BTW, can topozone measure distances and calculate % gradient the way that
Topo! does? I didn't notice it when I was on their site, but I can't say I
looked very well.

And how do you pronounce "pugh"?

Peace,
