From: pete592I think it's time for me to catch up on some much needed sleep that I have deprived myself of during my Great Wall quest.

I hope I've inspired some other explorers to seek out more of the Great Wall.
From: AndreaBTI just don't know how you FIND these! China in Google Earth seems to be a vast area of low-res images. And I know you didn't find that map from Nat'l Geo. until after you'd already found a few. You must have great patience to search these out. Yes, go get some sleep!
