Lots of work is going on behind the scenes. What did
we ever do without e-mail and how did we collaborate on a project spanning two
continents, three countries and many states, counties and provinces? Maybe

all, or proceeded much more slowly. Recently Andy and Baylus have been
working together on the geography of the Outer Banks island chain. Come
ride along with Baylus on their journey of discovery!!
