[Cdt-l] map printing tip

I'd suggest checking out your local library. Depending on where you 
live, you might be able to get a really good deal printing sheets. Also, 
you should be able to find a printer for a lot less than $200.... more 
like $45 or so, plus some extra ink - though, a cheap printer will be 
pretty slow. For ~$300 (I think), you could get a color laser 
printer...for which you shouldn't need any extra toner to print a full 
set of maps.

Best yet, find a friend or family member who's got a printer and wants 
to help out in some way!

I wouldn't bother with the chain stores (kinkos, etc), unless you have 
the persuasive powers of Lint.

Good luck...
