You fly like Superman from destination to destination. I will post a few good links to start you off:

Too cool. After you're done checking out your house, office, and childhood home, you'll roam the globe.

That is the coolest thing I have ever seen!!!!!!! :cool::D:thumbs::cheers:

Even more fun than Terraserver (which is all black-and-white and S-L-O-W)


I found my house, and my SS wasn't there... so I went to where I work, and my previous vehicle was in the lot, so that image was a couple of years old. :dunno:

While I was attending School in Laramie Wyoming some friends and I found a road the turned into a dirt road we followed it at about 60-70mph for like 4-5 hrs. We finally ran across some guy in the middle of nowhere and stopped to ask him where this road went he said we were about 20 miles from Cheyanne. We weren't to sure about that but we decided to turn around and go back to Laramie. So we never really knew. I found that trail on here and sure enough it's a very very long maintained dirt trail in the middle of nowhere!!!

Very cool site :thumbs:
