Just tried to print some satellite images from Wikimapia, the resolution is terrible, is there anything better?

By contour maps do you mean something like that: mappingsupport.com/p/… . I guess it is called Terrain maps or elevation maps from what I've searched.

Wikimapia is VERY nice, all that extra info is user generated? What about contour maps? Where can I find those?

Thanks, how did you print it out? Did you worry about scale or end up using whatever the screen shows you? What are Satellite Contour Images and where can I find then?

I don't own a GPS, but I have a Smartphone that I used on some shorter hikes (the batteries wouldn't last more than a day hiking with the GPS). In this case I want to learn and pratice to navigate using map and compass, the problem is I can't find any good or updated maps of my area.

As I said above, I will be using light trekking pants, so they aren't as sturdy as cotton ones.

I do have a leather waist pouch/fanny pack. I don't know if I will bring it to the trip since I will be carrying a backpack the whole time and the wait pouch will probably feel unconfortable below the hipbelt.

I think this happened in the store, and not in production. Decathlon here is a mess, so it is not far fetched to imagine they sometimes swap boots around. Anyway, I was a bit worried if the rubber, leather, fabrics, etc could show a difference.
