About the importance of maps

On the way to the Norwegian border we were approached by these two guys who had driven their Jeep to Russia from the Czech Republic. They were hoping to find bumpy gravel roads to get some four wheel drive action and asked if they could take a peek at our map. They did have a map of they own, too, but the fact that it had the entire Finland plus some parts of Russia on one A4 page suggested that it may have not contained all the necessary details for conquering smaller roads... We located the road they were looking for but were left wondering if they'd actually be allowed to drive there, as most of the areas West of Murmansk are controlled by the army.
