What’s a Map Quest map good for?

Recently, while on one of my metropolitan romps in the far west suburbs, I needed to quickly measure something.

I was stuck for hours at the edge of a storm front waiting for it to come in, so I could take its video portrait for ye olde day job.

Although I was surrounded by technology at its finest, there was no tool to simply measure with.

Until I saw the 8.5 x 11 map on the seat next to me…

Chick TeK:
- fold paper in half lengthwise, then widthwise
- fold half the paper width-wise again
- repeat twice

VOILA! 1.0625″ wide segments ready for action! (Much more accurate than the dubious map was to begin with…)

What’s your favorite in-a-pinch tool?
