You use Microsoft Streets and Trips to generate the map. Each number is a stop along the route. There are a number of print options.

Day after day as I try to remember, I find my forgetter working better and better.

If you have a “balloon”, you can right click on it and then select properties from the drop down list.  When the properties window opens up, select the current “balloon”.  one of the options presented is the numbers 1 through 9.  Granted, they are inside a balloon, but they are numbers.  Does that Help?

Hi guys!

Good discussion. 

Jean ..  if you really like the way Nick's map looks (and you have more than 9 stops) – you can do that with your blog too.  It's a Streets and Trips route map.  If you are using S&T for your route planning – then the map is already done!  In S&T, just use Edit, Copy Map – then paste it into Live Writer (you are using Live Writer aren't you?)

This is just an image then, not a link to the real map like with Google Maps.  So, it depends on what you need.
