Title should explain everything. In case you don't know, I'm from a small state and I think I'm one of the younger members here (currently not driving age as of this post) but I've been a fan of geography ever since I was a child.
Limon and Breezewood should not be control cities!

Welcome to the board!

I've loved roads and maps for as long as I can remember, so you're in good company here.

Welcome from a county the size of your state. I also joined (properly) as a teenager and have had no real issues here, other than cringing at some of my older posts.

tckma

Welcome.  I used to live in Massachusetts, though at this point it was probably before you were born.  The roadgeek bug bit me when I was about 6 or 7 years old.

You don't have to be a driver to attend a meetup!  Many folks carpool.  Consider attending one near you: https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?board=21.0
Though, if I'd found this forum as a teenager, I bet I'd have had a VERY difficult time convincing my parents to let me attend a roadgeek meetup.  "Strangers from the Internet driving you around?  No way!"  Knowing that I was the type who asked for road maps for my birthday and Christmas, though, they might have let me.  *shrug*

I don't remember when I found this forum, but I attended my first roadgeek meetup in 2016.  I don't attend often as my wife has little interest in it and it's therefore difficult to do any meets that aren't local to me.
