Newish member, finally getting around to posting a "hello".

My interest in maps is mainly with regard to gaming... though maybe my interest in gaming (and travel!) started with an interest in maps? As a kid, I had several big, intricate maps of caves (I especially remember Carlsbad Caverns, for some reason), old towns, and star charts. in later years I developed a taste for travel, and came to appreciate the usefulness (and deceptions!) of tourists and hikers' guides. And now, having slipped into the GM's seat agin, I'm back to making maps.

I've always enjoyed browsing the forums here, usually having found myself here via an RPG forum. And now I'm looking forward to actually participating now and then!
