Totally hand drawn. I sure hope that map has been updated since. I recall taking a subway to get to that map. I also updated Sunnybrook that summer and Downsview Dells (which was a scary place to map).

as in "money for nothing and your lessons in love for free"?
I didn't draw Sunnybrook (Rob Wagner's drawing) but added the classic'86 look. I remember how excited Henry Lam was that we could get offset printing in red on the map. First of its kind in Ontario?
Oh yeah and Henry had me expand Sunnybrook to include the Four Seasons hotel so people could go orienteering when they stayed there. I don't think that ever happened but Henry always looked at the business side of the sport. I think that is why DGL has done well. We just did what he told us to do.
I remember a confrontation with two women while mapping Downsview. I'm standing at the back of this shitty townhouse complex and one lady yells "Hey there is the guy that stole our stuff" and they run towards me. I responded "no not me I'm just making a map and all I've got here are pencil crayons and a Sony sport walkman" (I'm sure I was playing Synchronicity by the Police or New Gold Dream by Simple Minds). "I don't believe you open your back pack" the other yelled, and when I showed them I just had a water bottle and a lunch they started to walk away saying "We have our eyes on you" after which I muttered something like "as if you had anything I'd want to steal anyway". 30 years later I think Emma would say 'BURN'

AP is better. There should be an swooshy arrow in the lower right part of photo that you can click on that will then have an embed option. Copy that and then paste into AP.
Ahh Mark so that explains why you never lived up to your true potential. Anabel and Hank will be superstars ;-)
My pre-race warm-up routine tunes (for over 15 years) was a 12-15 minute combo of three instrumental Simple Minds tunes. The part where I did the pre-race forest run and sprints was Themes For Great CIties from New Gold Dream.
