REI is back on the wagon again. You can find our maps at REIs in San Francisco, San Carlos, Cupertino, Berkeley, Corte Madera, and Concord.

Remember when REI had just one store in Berkeley, and there were independent outdoors stores all over the Bay Area? Although many have fallen, there are still some great stores with a human face, worth seeking out and supporting. Dom's Outdoors Supply in downtown Livermore, Mel Cotton's on W San Carlos Ave in San Jose, and Redwood Trading Post in Redwood City are three that we've found and grown to love. Also in this category (though I can't speak from experience) are Lombardi Sports in SF and Wilderness Exchange in Berkeley. (After that you pretty much have to go to Santa Cruz, Bridgeport or Bishop).

Dom's is especially useful if you get stuck in I-580 traffic on a Friday night on your way to the Sierras, and/or remember something you forgot to pack. They cater to both backpackers and car campers, plus hunters and horse packers (you can even get your truck seats upholstered, buy hip waders, or sort through a big bin of leather scraps; stuff you don't find at REI). They carry spare parts for my old frame pack as well as modern gear. It runs like a family business.

Lastly, a great big thanks to stores that have vanished: Marin Outdoors, G&M Sales, the Smiley Co., and Sunshine Mountain Sports, to name a few.

For the most part, these stores carry all my maps, or can be coaxed into doing so (just ask).

Some stores order directly, others order through distributors, so I don't know who has which maps. If you see one, ask about the others.

Where I know a store carries just certain maps, I note the title in red type using the following abbreviations:

SC=Trails Santa Cruz
NM=Trails of Northeast Marin
CO=Trails of the Coastside & Northeast Marin County

Pacifica=Trail Map of Pacifica which is ONLY available at stores noted--ostensibly it's out of date and out of print, but it's still of local interest and I have a box or two left).
