Give me a notebook, a map and a road.

Cardboardbird is a nomad and ruinophile. For now I call Kalgoorlie in Western Australia home.

Most of the info I contribute is gathered while travelling in the destination.

I'm an admin. I prefer to edit than revert, but I'd much rather be writing for pages on my current projects list.
