    The Road To Somewhere...

    Maps. Fascinating things. Never really needed any, because for some reason, I always know where I'm going. I sometimes lose my way, but never direction. I never get lost, somehow. But I love maps. Like I said, fascinating stuff. Especially since the dawn of satellite photography...

    I Also Love Maps

    I will pull out my world atlas and look at different countries and the names of their various cities and daydream about their culture and some of the people i know who are from there. Looking at maps always takes me on trips in my mind :) Maps are beautiful :)

    I Certainly Love Maps

    I use to use them daily as a patrol officer and later as a chauffeur. Was one of the first classes at my high school to take geography and did the ROTC mapping competitions back in the day   Yep great tools for everyday life
