I would like to gripe about topo maps. Well, first of all the maps at
topozone do not have a very high resolution - they are blurry and it
is difficult to make out details. But my major complaint is that the
7.5" maps in my area are pitifully outdated - 20+ years old at least.
And there are no street names for anything other than major
thoroughfares, and the roads are not mapped accurately either. I
have gotten VERY lost using topo maps. The DeLorme maps,
even though they do not provide the detail of the USGS offerings,
are much more useful.


It makes me mad when I go to all the trouble of having Marta cook up about
a hundred drumsticks, and the guy at the Marineland says, "You can't throw
chicken to the dolphins. They eat fish." Sure they eat fish, if that's all
you give them. Man, wise up.
