Hey everyone, new member to this site/overlanding, but pretty experienced in the outdoors (new to having a tough car). I like navigating by map and compass, or at the very least having one, and I'm looking for solid maps of Maine. The Delorme Maine Atlas and Gazetteer is no longer in production, and I was wondering if anyone had found a solid replacement for it? Thanks!

@stillmurphee , You can still get the Delorme Maine Atlas & Gazetteer. I have a copy bought at the same source. This edition says DeLorme Publishing; 35th edition (December 13, 2018).

I first started using the Maine Atlas & Gazetteer from Delorme living in Maine in the late 1970's, when it was their first and only product. David Delorme went on to doing maps for upstate NY, too, and then more and more. I have their Atlas's for NH/VT, Mississippi, and Texas, as well. I weish I still have my old ones. Here's a cool wiki page on Delorme and how he transformed map availability.

You can also find and order the Delorme Atlas & Gazetteers online at Cabelas and at Garmin .

I also used to get great topo maps from the trading posts up around Moosehead and sometimes at the AMC store on Mt Desert Island. Kept them rolled in a homemade quiver slung over crossways, for snowshoeing and hiking all up around Moosehead and down on Mt Desert.

I'm in Maine now exploring the coast and helping out family for the summer.
