Maps for Adventure Travel

How appropriate are SplashMaps as Maps for Adventure Travel?

We sent a map of the Assam’s Manas Tiger Reserve to famous adventurer Col. John Blashford-Snell who heads the Scientific Exploration Society and is leading an expedition to the region later this month to help tribes in the area. The adventure will be on Elephant back!

“Dear David,

Your splendid 1:40,000 scale fabric map has just arrived. It really is first class and we are most grateful to you for producing this valuable piece of equipment for the forthcoming expedition.

I was pleased to see you even had Long/Lat which will help our navigators.

We’ll photograph it in use and let you have the images in April.

With very best wishes and sincere thanks.

John
