You could load them into google earth. I know it can be done, however I do not know how to do it. Not much help be a push in the right direction.

I normally print a map (or 3 or 4) directly from MapSource (Garmin provided). It's not quite as nice as Google maps, but it gives me the general lay of the land.

On a side note - I'm thinking we might be able to incorporate this into the WGA website on some redo's in the future. I've been playing with some other GoogleMap backend programming / integration and that may be an interesting feature to add to encourage people to use the WGA site.

I don't like google earth when I put my mouse over a cache it. moves almost an inch away to a new location. What I want is when you type in and address to look for caches and you click view map it shows the caches in the area on the map. I want to print that to take with me to say ok we did this cache and on the map there is one 2 blocks away on wilson st. The when I get to wilson st. I can then switch to my gps. They had a map almost like that for the cache bash.
