    That's a cool idea. Of course you could make a map and plan out the route but I bet you could come up with all sorts of things.

    Now that's making a line the hard way! I can just imagine someone's house being torn down because Paris Hilton needs to travel open ground for her 'GPS Masterpiece'


    Think I'll stick to making my lines the simple way.


    Dollhouse Syndrome = The temptation to turn a map into a picture, obscuring the goal of the image with the appeal of cute, or simply available, parts. Maps have clarity through simplification.
