I am a Georgaphy Major so it makes sense.
What type of jobs can a Geography major attain after college...I asked an advisor at my school, and all she said was meteorology.

I love looking at google maps and it's a great way to get a little familiar with a city before you go. Sometimes when I see where certain areas or neighborhoods are in cities I haven't been to or explored enough, I can understand them more by their location and size. I even learn more about places I lived or visit all the time by looking at google maps. And it's always fun for me to look at different places around the world.

Goolge Earth and Google maps all the time. At least once a day.

I've loved maps since I was a kid! I used to ride along with my dad all over the state for work-related trips, and I would entertain myself by looking at the Rand McNally map. I never grew out of it. Now I scroll around on Mapquest and Google Street View instead.

I love maps as well and can spend hours studying maps. It really helps a person understand a region and where certain towns are located; broadens one's horizon.

Hi again, my Big Sur friend.
I also like to study maps. Even have a shower curtain in one of the bathrooms that has the world map on it. Kinda cool.
Hope you can get back to Monterey one of these days. I'll be down in your area early January.

Hi WestWillow! I also love very detailed maps of mountains that show all the elevations and canyons\ creeks and trails. There are maps of the Santa Lucia mountains above Big Sur; there's a dirt road that a person can take between King City and just south of Big Sur that I would love to take some day.
