Thanks for the reply on the main board about maps in Boston. I think best for me would be if you could send pdf maps I could print and bring over. Arboretum, Franklin, Boston Common, maybe Harvard & MIT if they exist?
PS I don't think I'll make it out to Forest-X as I have a friend coming in Saturday night and we'll be doing some touristy things before leaving at 4 on Sunday. Shame, it looks like it will be fun.
