Loved those things. Coyoty March 30, 2020 at 3:26 am 4 years ago “Maps are so wonderful for the imagination.” Especially the uncharted parts.

March 30, 2020 at 6:45 am 4 years ago I want to see the rest of Aitana’s new outfit! The portion visible is quite promising. Keith March 30, 2020 at 7:48 am 4 years ago Oh no, not the dreaded belly/fanny pack…who am I kidding, I have one for traveling. Kaidah March 30, 2020 at 8:27 am 4 years ago It’s practical *and* stylish. No matter what the wife says. lol Fnordius March 30, 2020 at 11:10 am 4 years ago They are back in Europe, but worn as a bandoleer, diagonally across the chest. DSL March 30, 2020 at 9:08 pm 4 years ago Never been a fan of people telling me what I should or should not wear. Clinton and Stacy would have a bad time around me. Jude March 30, 2020 at 4:19 pm 4 years ago I’ve loved maps ever since I was in Grade 4 (8-9 years old). My oldest brother had a Grade 9 geography textbook, mostly on world history of different civilizations. He’d bring it home to do assignments and I read it from cover to cover multiple times. The maps fascinated me. Maps still do but I particularly like world maps that progress from early civilizations to just after WWI, showing how boundaries change and adding in lots of detail of the movement of different people across the world. We have a big thick text from the 1990s using mainly maps with lots of additional written information and drawings explaining the world’s history. Essentially like the maps from that old grade 9 geography text but taken to the nth degree for adult readers. One of our most prized books. Pete Rogan March 30, 2020 at 5:44 pm 4 years ago Back in the way back when, I had a color printed map of Fairyland, with all the castles and hidden caves and haunted forests that crowded European-American folklore. Complete with paths! I would trace the paths, going on imagined journeys, as the map said, East of the Sun and West of the Moon. I never lost my fascination for maps, and roads going endlessly on. The internet is kind of the same way, but the hidden caves and haunted forests that exist there are real enough to be daunting even to the stoutest soul. I mean, once you find V-DARE and the Daily Stormer, the world under your feet gets a little uncertain, and people in the street no longer so innocent or hopeful. Dark things are moving under us, around us, and through us, looking for a way in. Not something I ever got from my map of Fairyland. But before I forget — yeah, I’d like to see what Aitana and the bot came up with. I like the little I see, and wonder if the total package isn’t gobsmacking. Muzhik March 30, 2020 at 7:16 pm 4 years ago I used to have a map of the moon that came in a National Geographic that I had hanging on my wall, pre-1969 until around 1975. It was replaced by a poster that showed an eagle swooping down on a mouse, who had a snarl on his face and flipping the bird at the bird, and underneath in bold letters was the dictionary definition of “defiance”… DSL March 30, 2020 at 9:09 pm 4 years ago “To Mock a Killing Bird.” TB March 30, 2020 at 8:45 pm 4 years ago This would be the Magic Tracking Map, right? Does it work in space? Night-Gaunt49 March 30, 2020 at 10:45 pm 4 years ago Aitana is a space princess now. She is still captivated by fictional and real royalty. Those waist packs are convenient to give you more pockets. Aye a space map. Crude but it does help some in orientation after a fashion.
