I added myself on the map - I hope that's ok?

It's absoLUTELY more than okay Lones! I didn't set it up for "me" (I have my address written on the inside of my clothing labels in case I get lost - am practising for the onset of senility lol).

It's open to everyone. I can only change how it "looks" and there aren't all that many options in the "free version" anyway.

I imagine eventually we'll all have ID/GPS locator chips implanted at birth, but in the meantime, it's kind of neat to see, visually, that we are truly a global community.

p.s. I'd love to be sitting/standing/playing ANYwhere on a golf course right now, sigh.. only 4 more months before the snow goes away!

Yes I failed miserably the first time by trying to pin on the flag myself. Going to search and typing the name and place got it in the right spot.

I've put me on there, probably in the middle of a motorway it seems, but in the right general area.

Cool. There's already 18 folks "pinned". UK is "winning at pinning" at the moment - where's the rest of the world? lol

Working fine here, but I had to delete and replace myself. My first attempt at dead reckoning had me about 20kms out in the Pacific Ocean!

Got to it now on the school computer. Its internet is Optus satellite and the other ones are Telstra .. I wonder if that had something to do with it?

Anyway, I'm on there now.

Wow, Jill! I've always pretty much known it anyway, but seriously, you are in the middle of nowhere! wink I zoomed in on the terrain and am still amazed at how closely it resembles where I live. And I see the tire tracks in the dirt and wonder how many of those you and your family made. I love maps! laugh

I just had a look at you CS and it does look similar! We have about the same average rainfall too. I am possibly going to do a quick trip to Disneyland in late January .. looks a bit too far for a day trip, huh?
(or is anyone else in the Anaheim area?)

Anaheim would be about a 6 hour drive from CS. This time of year, it seems that's about all the daylight we get, LOL.
