Hey, brothers.  I joined this group because I've been fascinated by maps since I was a kid.  I think my interest in geography started when my parents ran a trucking company during my childhood years, so I learned to read a road atlas at an early age.  I think I can still name the county seat of all 120 counties in Kentucky (my home state).
