Wall Maps

Post by Tough_Boots » Mar 11 2010 10:47 am

Does anyone recommend someplace (preferably local) that could do a topo wall map of Tonto? Is Wide World of Maps my only possible option?

For the money, MyTopo does a great job... Pretty fast too!

I have a Raven map of the state of Arizona hanging in the den:

I love it. I look at it about as much as the boob-tube.

Ok, that one went on my birthday wish list for sure! My birthday is in about 11 days!

Kids love huge wall relief maps. Maybe I'm still a kid. :D

My mother wallpapered the breakfast room with National Geographic maps when I was a kid. It was sooooo cool--you'd sit there eating and daydreaming about traveling.

I like MyTopo and I love map. Sometimes I just print them myself. Here's just a portion of the map side of my office.

A lot of you are familiar with Promack in Apache Junction and some of the services they provide. Here's one you may not be aware of; (dead link removed)

Love your office. When I was a kid my mom wallpapered the breakfast room with those maps that come inside of the National Geographic Magazine, so we could dream of travel while eating.

I wallpapered the kitchen of one of my last houses in Georgia with National Geographic Magazine photos. Except instead of maps, it was all photos of people smiling :D

Whoa. A whole bunch of cheerful people staring at you during Monday morning coffee? Whoa. That could make a saint grumpy.

They may be smiling in the photos, but they are in NatGeo, which means that they are either starving in a third-world country, in space, or locked in a tiny laboratory studying either third-world hunger or space. So it's easy to look at their smiles and decide that your day will nonetheless be better than theirs. ;)
