France, England, Florida, Tanzania, Peru--Can Two Hemispheres Contain so Many Esri T-Shirts?

Curt Musselman Curt Musselman, National Park Service historian, applies GIS to both cultural and natural resource management issues at the Gettysburg National Military Park. On July 1, 1999, he displayed his Esri T-shirt and hat at the Omaha Beach memorial on the Normandy battlefield in France. A significant parallel between the Normandy and Gettysburg battlefields are that at both places huge sacrifices were made in order to preserve freedom.

Lynn Gulick Lynn Gulick, GIS specialist, Georgia Department of Transportation, showed off her T-shirt while at Everglades National Park's Shark Valley. Valley is a term used loosely in Florida, especially south Florida--the topological relief is less than a foot! She is at the end of a looped bike trail on which the alligators have the right of way.

John and Suzann Barr John C. Barr, manager, Special Programs, Little Rock Public Works Department, Little Rock, Arkansas, and his wife, Suzann, display their T-shirts at Hadrian's Wall ENE of Carlisle, England, May 1999 while on their fifth vacation in the area. Stretching about 73 miles from the mouth of the Tyne on the west and Solway Firth on the east, Hadrian's Wall construction began about A.D. 130. Emperor Hadrian ordered its construction to delineate the northern political boundary of the Roman Empire in England. At only 15-feet high, and in places up to nine-feet thick, the wall and its accompanying forts, mileposts, and fortlets were used for monitoring and staging activities.

Bryan Blake and wife Bryan Blake, SIS project manager for the Incident Management System and SIS training coordinator (licensed Esri instructor), Roads and Traffic Authority, New South Wales, Australia, and his wife recently were at Machu Pichu in the Andes Mountains of Peru, where they naturally thought to bring their Esri T-shirts!

Roger Kelesoglu Roger Kelesoglu, Esri-Boston, Massachusetts, sales representative, is perched atop the highest point in Africa, the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, while on vacation September 1999. Roger says he climbed the 19,340-foot mountain "because it was there . . . ." He wore his Esri T-shirt for the same reason.
