While I’ve previously come up with tons of ways to use these things in the classroom, my husband has an usual travel adaptation. Want to know what it is? †
David loves to use these things to hold maps. Why? Because if it starts raining, an unprotected map will do you about as much good as . . . well, not much good at all, really. You can use this idea on a family day hike, on the road in Indonesia with a photocopied map page from your Lonely Planet, or in general if you like to mark on your map in the car, but will be taking a different route next time and don’t want the previous notes to distract you. (Grease pencils and water based overhead markers are great for this.) Happy trails!
