    Need a map

    Hi: I'm trying to layout a bimble route for some friends.
    I think some of you are from the Waukesha area.
    I'm looking for a plain paper map of Waukesha County. The maps I have been able to find are glossy and multi colored. I need to be able to highlight the route.
    I was able to find plain paper maps of Jefferson County at the Sheriffs office and Walworth County maps at the visitors center in Elkhorn.
    I've tried the office for Waukesha near the strip mall off of I94 and hwy 83. Glossy and colored.
    Different map stores, same choice.
    I've started stopping at hotels to check out the tourist brochure racks. They have maps for Milwaukee and Chicago, but nothing for Waukesha.
    I ordered maps from the Wisc D.O.T.. They were plain paper but not detailed enough.
    If someone know where I could buy the maps I need, I would appreciate the heads up.
    Thanks Frank Coleman

    One of many definitions online:

    To go out for a ride on a motorbike, anywhere, having fun.

    Hopefully something from the Oxford English Dictionary is fine:

    The map store formerly Milwaukee Maps is at 3720 N 124th, just south of Capitol Drive in Wauwatosa. They have "Everything"
    Google them. I know they're going out of business soon but not sure when their last day is.

    Ah, but as Daniel Boone puts it "I have never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks." I wonder when a bimble becomes a serious journey??

    Map

    You can take your glossy colored maps and make plain paper copy than highlight away.
