My daughter loves maps and is a geology major. This looked right up her alley as much of work involves standing in streams. I only peeked at the map when it arrived, but it exceeded my expectation in terms of quality. She, on the other hand, was blown away, saying it was the coolest thing she has on her wall. She also asked where I got it so she could tell her friends and professors. If you see a burst of activity out of Maryland - that's all me. Haha. Shipping was lightning quick and accurate. The map beat all of her other gifts to my place. Thanks for making me look good and best of luck.
