HAWAII

[Riley Moffat reports:]
“Just ran across a new series of island maps. They’re from Robert Joseph Siemers of Environmental Designs, P.O. Box 549, Koloa, HI 96756, envd@hawaii.rr.com, www.teok.com.  They’re not as detailed as UH’s maps, but they include recreational data, geology, climatology, meanings of place names, etc. All in all, I think they’re the most complete single sheet source of information for each island. They’re retailing over here for $7.95.
