I remember the days before computers. I used to drive thousands of miles, to many cities and states, for my hobby. I'd always contact the Civic Centers and the Visitors Association equivalent in each city/state to obtain maps, accommodations info, etc. And, of course, AAA was my best friend for obtaining Trip-tiks and motel books.

I had a huge four-drawer file cabinet, with red-rope file folders for info from each city/state. Routing drives on a map was a necessity -- I'd high-light color-coded routes, some to the motel, others to the destination site, etc.

Now all that stuff is (as Carolina Woman noted) "a thing of the past". But I actually miss those days. It was so interesting learning about different places in a way that I wouldnt have learned if I'd had a PC back then.

Received mine yesterday after requesting it earlier this week. It's really cool. Can't wait to hit the road.
Thanks, Bob!
