The Fun*raiser went well. Not as many heads turnout due to the weather but I had a great time. I hope the block party goes better.

I am sad that I wasn’t able to go back to the AAG conference but the Green Festival zapped my time. However I found a great eco-friendly geographical gift item called Geolopes:

Geolopes are common sized envelopes and stationery recycled from outdated government surplus topographic maps published by various U.S. and Canadian government mapping agencies.

Topographic maps are responsible for my love for geography. I have fond memories of looking at my first topographical map when hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park when I was 8 years old! (after getting the link to Rocky Mountain National Park I noticed that I’ve climbed the 3 mountains in the background- Flattop Mountain, Hallets Peak, and Mount Otis) Nonetheless, I think I will be buying some Geolopes for myself! Maybe I can get a set for my birthday :-) I’ll definitely write more letters this way. Plus I used to make all of my own envelopes back in the day from magazines (mainly Vogue), and this recycling project uses. I think it would a cool way to send out resumes to potential earth science employers. I can also see this company having a booth at the AAG’s annual meeting.

This rendering has a unique torus- even better when viewed as 200 megapixels. I think its time for another near full-size upload- but which one?
