I have decided to cut loose with some of my resource
material and make it available for those who would truly benefit from it… For
your benefit and mine, the following is the resource material I am making
available as I need to raise some cache… groceries have double and the power
bill scared the hell out of me… I am certain I am preaching to the choir… Here
is my chance to offer something of value in return for donations.
NOTICE: Some have experience trouble with download, to avoid any potential issue, please include $12 for a flash drive and media shipping. and I will need a mailing address.
And may I say, I know times are hard right now, I get it, that’s why I am doing this until I find more stability… so if it is beyond you due to hard times, don’t worry about it and let me say regardless… Thank You for your continuous support.
I am going to start with the 3000 PDF book collection. For a $100 Donation
When I first started this … hobby? about 1999 I sought out the best of books and articles, books written by the earliest of explorers and in them days, I had begun quite a collection of physical copies until around 2009, circumstances beyond my control forced me to sell them, But I never sold a book that I had not found a PDF copy, a scan of the original, this is what started my PDF book collection. Today there is 3000 or more books and articles written by some of the earliest explorers of this land and others. Many of the books are OCR in other words, they are searchable, for example just doing a Title Search using “GIANTS” yields these titles.
Adding the search option to find the use
of the word Giants within the text of the books I unexpectedly got these results… and this is just the
topic of “Giants”
I thought my search results would be less than a quarter of what I got.
In this collection there are NO books like Tom Sawyer,
Moby Dick, To kill a Mocking Bird or Dick and Jane, these are all research
books that I have gleaned many nuggets from the pages.

If you do not know what a 15 minute map is, please
look it up and educate yourself, but from a TOPO map user point of view I say
this, 15 minute maps have always been coveted, they were made from 1890 to 1950
but what I love about them is they contain all the detail of a larger 7 Minute
Map but the appearance is smaller, each 15 minute map contains the equivalency
in area covered of NINE 7 minute maps without loosing any detail. Also the 15 min maps are known for having details
such as old mine sites, old cabins, old roads that no longer exists, ranch
houses, railroads, discovered ancient ruins sites, historic locations and
sometimes petroglyph sites, because of these maps I was able to log over 2000
ruins locations throughout the four corners states. Many of which disappeared
from the maps after the 1950’s however in the late 1970’s all historic markings
are now removed from the TOPO maps. These maps have played a big roll in my
research over the years. If the day ever comes where in we loose our satellites
and GPS capabilities, how many people will still be able to navigate? I would
venture to say the number would be a single digit.
