Since it seems to be the thing to do , I just wanted to say a quick hello.

I don't have any maps worth showing, but I was so impressed by what I saw on this forum that I wanted to join and see the full-size versions of what everyone's created. There's really some amazing work on here.

I'm a life-long map geek--I've used lots of topo maps, nautical charts, RPG maps, etc., over the years, and I have small collection of old mapping and cartographical-drawing textbooks. Maybe the forum will give me some ideas for some personal projects.
