Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Improvised Mapping Apps.......
Well, I figured out an improvised method of creating a pretty decent printable map from GMaps Pedometer in detail sections. I use GMaps, GIMP, and Open Office Draw. Set the map on GMaps to the level of detail you want, and get screenshots of each section from the beginning to the end. Crop down to the map image itself, and insert each one in a separate slide in Draw. Get finished with all the slides and then you can export it to PDF from O_O Draw.
I attached a lowered resolution sample in PDF, by the way. It's at 75% quality jpeg compression, so it may be a bit fuzzy as compared to losless compression.
