    I am also one to prefer paper maps and guides. Technology is only as good as its weakest link. Too many times, a GPS will lead you down the wrong path. You DO have to use common sense when deciding...

    Yes, I'd agree that things are a wee bit unbalanced. A few years back, we did a trip that took in many of those sites, and here's how ours were balanced:
