I was pondering picking them up and shipping them to everyone so got out my 
trusty map. Oregon is quite a distance from Georgia. Too far I am thinking, 
sorry. (hee hee) 

Can't wait to take that 1st step. When that happens it means the hard part is 
over and the Fun Easy part begins! WooooHoooo !!!

Alright gang, so I spoke with the printing shop and they are only set up to ship 
with ups and thus cannot do priority mail with usps. So the shipping cost per 
order will be around $15 or more depending on location. Thus the better solution 
seems to be that if someone wants to volunteer to pick up all the printed maps 
and ship them individually to everyone via usps flat rate and get a much better 
shipping rate (there is about 20 people to ship to) . The other option is have 
them all sent to me as the bulk shipping is not bad and then I can ship them to 
everyone, but this might not save much money. So let me know what you folks 
think, I dont mind continuing to gather the money for the total order and place 
it if someone wants to volunteer to be shipping manager. Let me know what folks 
think. Thanks for you patience everybody.

If the $15 shipping quote is what the print shop quoted you, chances are they 
won't budge on that, especially given that they're doing a discount on printing. 
 Perhaps someone in the group who lives in Portland would be willing to 
coordinate the shipping.  That person could pick up the maps, then mail all the 
sets out.
