I use a map.

Which means having a defined topology. Now I prefer to "hop" from "router" to "router". I know my destination, with varying degrees of precision, so I just head to the first local gateway node which puts me onto the correct physical connection, displaying a "local" route table, and pointing to the pathway where I can find another source of authority (e.g. The North, The South).
