A Baltimore "Historic" map for the conference, to orient nonresidents. Trail 1 goes from Patterson Park "ova east" straight into downtown, then hooks around to Fort Avenue heading for the national "shrine" of Fort McHenry. A 5-mile hike, one way, though you need to put thought into returning from whence you came (I did it by bus in 2010).
The numbers correspond to imagery, now reachable via thank you,

In the *70s* I was undergrad on a fire station location study
My open source OS: (since 0.9).
Poll on fashion later (masks are must-have for me!).

For a chipmunk that didn't move after shooting up the tree, it sure was vocal after I moved on. Yeah, sure, scream insults at my back. It sure spewed a lot of inappropriate language not at all becoming a cute woodland creature.
