Do not get your hopes up on the map sale. I just tried to order about 25 TAG area maps and less than half were on sale.

That's true- but since they've been trying to minimize their map inventories for years, it isn't surprising. The publications they are offering are a good deal, as a number of them aren't available as PDFs.

Too bad the sale search engine doesn't let you sort by publication date- I found some pre-WW2 Sierra Nevada topos; if nothing else, they are cool old maps. 'Cave' as a search term yielded all sorts of interesting stuff.

Reminds me of ordering some old 15' WV quads years ago... the one I received for the Lewisburg area had a revision date of 1895 and was printed on old kaolin clay paper stock! Got that one framed.

I got my order yesterday. I orderd 25 of the topo maps. Luckily I already had the ones that were right in the heart of TAG so was able to fill in the surrounding areas. Got some great ones from Alabama and even some in Tennessee. Even got a really nice one from the 40's of the South Pittsburg area pre Interstate 24. It's a really nice looking map too!
