Build Your Own County Travel Map Online

My Arkansas State/County Map

Anyone who collects counties will also enjoy coloring in the maps of the counties he or she has visited. The most fun county travel map you can make is by using a very interesting free website built and maintained by Marty O'Brien. Marty cleverly calls his site: "Why do you think they call them counties?"

Visitors to the site can record their counties by using a guest account. However, most will want to have their own permament page. You can get one by emailing Marty at the addresss you will find on the site. Just click on "How do I get an account?" on the left side of the front page.

One of the great things about the site is that it allows you to keep up with your progress in comparison to others who are in the same pursuit. There are also interactive maps in which you can compare your own county map side-by-side with those of a fellow traveler. These features help make it even more interesting, and are an incentive to those with a competetive nature. There are also several county related bits of information and other items of interst.

It may take Marty a short time to get back to you for your account to be activated, but remember that he does this for free, out of the goodness of his heart. I greatly appreciate this very valuable service he offers to us County Counters.
