When Chris Marshall has some time to send out updates, Ohio, West Virginia and Virginia will go online, as will part of Indiana.

I scanned most of Virginia and West Virginia, about half of Maryland, and a fringe of Pennsylvania. On my next trip to State College (maybe I'll go Saturday) I should fill in some alternate editions in PA, and fill out the missing coverage of Virginia, then see what else is available.

I'm about due for some ice cream anyway.
