Maps are one of my favorite things to create. There are so many possibilities with a map, and the US map makes me nostalgic for those roadtrips my family took in the 70s and 80s. This summer (2016) we took my 14 year old on an old school road trip. The car was full of camping gear, snacks, games, the dog. Audio books and digital playlists replaced the mix tapes of my teen years, but otherwise it had much of the same allure. And my daughter—despite initial grumbling—enjoyed it.
