    Go to sportsmans and get a topo map for you computer. I think I have the national geographic program and it is great. It has a map of the entire state, if I need a map, I pick the area, zoom in as much as I want, and print it off. If this isn't an option right at the moment for you, you can use it in the future

    My son is currently up north, without a computer and is looking for the hard copy topos.

    Thanks

    Can't make it to Anchorage? The USGS map store on the APU campus is awesome.

    Thanks Brian, my son is in a camp outside of Healy and he can get to FB in a couple of hours. His buddy lives in Matsu and is going to join him in two weeks to go chase sheep. I'll let my son know about APU and their store and maybe his buddy can come in and pick one up there.

    Chimo guns, behind the Carr's store in Wasilla has topo's (I think). Not nearly the stock as the APU store, but might be worth a check.
    Gotta be someplace in FBX. Try PM'ing Bartlett.

    I am fairly certain there is a map place in Fairbanks in the Federal building, man its been years though so I could be wrong or it could have moved. Have you tried getting in touch with Larry? He would no for sure.

    Rob:

    My sons' partner will try Chimos and maybe APU, but I'll tell him about the fed building.
