Just for a hobby try:

1) Printing to PDF, and then if that looks good printing the PDF.
2) Sending an email with the URL to your directions to some other people to
try printing for you on their computers. (I'm happy to volunteer and then
send you back a PDF or my results if I have success.
3) Define a stopping place or two in your directions and then print the
shorter ones.

I guess, these are the things I would try not being a magic Google Maps wiz!
