If you cant find that map and don't have a mac or old windows

You should be able to find real pictures of where you are going.

Mike,
You might add this site to your Camp ground sites list.

Thanks Ron, we've been playing around with it since it first came out. The only problem with it is that the quality of the images isn't very good unless you are looking for a place to camp in downtown L.A. :lol: or some other seriously populated area.

By the way, we've missed hearing from you. Glad to have you back.
Chris :D

The tension between what is good enough and what is beyond that creates the space for character to become our work.

I downloaded it a while back. One thing I'll say about it is, If you don't have a good broadband connection and a fast computer with a decent video card, forget it! I played with it for weeks after I downloaded it. Sent it to a buddy and he did the same thing. I think it's a guy thing, the wife (both of ours) seem unimpressed.

I downloaded the weather radar overlay for it, it gives you radar for the whole country. I see them use it on the news for their overhead shots quite often.
