[cdt-l] back from 2001 hike

True, the USGS maps are public domain, but I believe
if you do the work of scanning them, you can own the
copyright to those scans if you so choose. (there are
some organizations who've scanned USGS maps & have
them available for free on-line - public domain - but
they don't quite do what I need...)
I suppose it's one of those instances where the
information age & the printing press age collide!
