I'm sure this is a repost, but I never saw it on here...

www.googleearth.com (http://www.googleearth.com)

A downloadable program (about 11 Mb) that allows you to zoom in on anywhere on the world. This is a huge improvement over the older sattelite photos you could get from google. You can zoom in much further, tilt, pan, spin, zoom, etc.

This program is far more interesting and entertaining than I would have ever imagined from a free program.

My house is at 40*20*30.24 N by 76*55*37.24 W. Right up the road where you can see the parking lot is where I pull in the kayak and watch Chiefs games.

Getting home is always interesting. That does kick ass, wow.

I can safely say this has been discussed at least a year ago and has over 5 lengthy threads about it already.

But it is the best one yet.:clap:

Yep, it's great!

Here is the apartment we lived in while I was stationed in Greece:

And here's the base I was stationed at. It awesome that the based closed in 1991, but the primary mission of the base (softball) is still alive and well, apparently...
