Hi again,

Well, as I said above, you can print out a copy of your google map. You can create the map and pin the restaurants in a certain area or day... then just print it. There is plenty of room in the margins to make notes about closure day, specialties, etc. But of course you'd have to use the computer to do it. I guess to avoid that, you can buy a paper map of the city or region you'll be in, then just mark it up with the restaurants & notes. I agree that there is a tactile pleasure in touching and handling materials ...

Have fun!

yup, suze, many many military officers lived by those note cards -- very versatile!

Yeah! I used to love them! Now I put everything on notes in my tablet.

I wonder if your husband is younger than I am..... we didn't have computers. They started hitting Army desks around 1996??? I got my first "portable" computer assigned to me in about 1997 -- it was about the size of a carry-on and weighed around 25 lbs.

I think when computers arrived, everything changed...

swandav--I have no idea your age, but my dh entered in 1983. He was a Submarine Commander, so a different field for sure. In 1999 we had this enormous "phone" so that he could do classified calls. My only restriction was that that was not to be in our bedroom as I knew the calls would come in at all hours. Space was such a premium on the boats, and that is still ingrained in him today. You should see how he can organize areas! Neighbors are always in awe of our garage, lol!
