Pontism can lead to cartophilia. In my case the two developed independently then merged symbiotically.

When you acquire a 36" plotter so you can print the maps, you've made the big time!

By using old quad maps, and the one hint of the township and section I was able to find it. I am having fun finding these old locations using the quad maps, google earth, and maps.
