I live in Chicago and currently do about half my editing there. The other half I do in northern Michigan, where I grew up. I spread myself between cleanup (aligning crooked TIGER roads to satellite imagery, fixing Keep Right errors) and adding detail (buildings, park features, etc). Some of my earlier edits in Chicago were the filling-out of Douglas Park and Garfield Park.
