Title: Photo of me and my kites on Google maps street view
Post by: tonycarl60 on September 19, 2013, 07:05 PM
I updated my google maps today. When I used the street view I was surprised to see picture of me and my kites at Sherman park, Newman, Ca. where I fly every day. I was setting up my kites, a Rev Pro and two Prism Snapshot 1.2's. I'm just glad I wasn't picking my nose at the time :)
Better be careful, big brother is watching you.......................

Yep,spooky stuff that.
I often go to maps and its like time travel,all or most of my favorite planet destinations are available to walk around in.
Nice airspace,Teal Way is!
Go to maps and type your destination!

Yup, that's my truck, I would have washed it if I had known Google was going to be there :) Sometimes I lay on my stomach on the grass to rest, but somebody might get the wrong idea that I might be doing unspeakable things to the gophers :)

Thanks goestoelven for the link. BTW the updated version of google maps fixes the curve or fisheye effect of street view :)

Nice park. Love the open space. Interesting how they seem to have blurred the license plate and what may be a bumper sticker.
