Chances are that Gandalf did have the map and key in Bree [In reply to] Can't Post

Even ninety years after encountering Thrain, Gandalf still was not certain as to who he was until after meeting Thorin. It wasn't until then (remember that Thorin approached Gandalf, not the reverse) that it all came together. He probably did have the map and key with him since Gandalf does not seem to have ever had a permanant residence, so what else would have have done with them? As he said, once he had ascertained that they were for Thoriin, he made his own determation as to where and when to present them to him.
