I down loaded the Plock rectangle. Near the town of Lipno there is the
abbreviation RUM. before a few town names. In the legend it has Rum.
Rumunki. The word isn't in my Polish dictionary. Can someone translate?

Very interesting site with good quality maps for the region
covered. This is not a site for anyone with dial-up
connections. Using a cable high-speed connection, I started the
download for the 1:100,000 map of the Plock region at 6:15. At 8:30
it was still not complete but I had to go out for awhile so I let it
continue to download. At about 7:15 I had started another download
for the 1:300,000 map of Plock. I have just returned home at
10:30. The first map is completed but the second is still working
away. I'm not sure what it is doing as the map appears to be complete.
I have saved them to my computer so that I don't have to go through that
