Mapcard.com which is under the same company as topozone.com has for $19.95 a year a website where you can download all themaps of the entire USA and with Java make the maps look just the way you want ( draw on them with lines to show your routes,put flag-markers to show GPS, put notes on the maps to tell names and descriptions and pan the maps) and then either save them to your PC or print out all the copies you want. They have the aerial views in Black and White, Color and combined topo and aerial map images.
You can observe from 1/6,000 to 1/100,000,000 scale depending on the area. I like to either save the maps to my PC so I can view them at home or print them out on my color printer. No need to wait for maps to come in the mail. Laminating maps for waterproofness is as easy as buying clear plastic shelve paper and putting it together or having the map(s) laminated at a computer store like Staple's.
I have been using Mapcard.com for about 5 years.
