Found my skookie on Google Maps ! !

It's in my back yard so no big surprise but it's still kind of neat.


Anyone else have a pic of their rig from space ??

Re: Found my skookie on Google Maps ! !

Not only did I find our bus
https://www.google.com/maps/place/33...1202468d463f2d
The overhead view was taken during the winter and no bus in sight - not in our current spot and not in our first spot in the park. A big RV is in our spot but it's not us. We aren't even in our old spot. Street view date says May 2013. We are the long skinny one parked under the big tree backed up to Brasher. The Street view even shows the food cart! Pic was taken before we put the A/C in the rear section of the bus. So the over head and street views are taken at different times.

But I found Das Mel and she was at home! Claudia was parked under the tree in the shade! Different time of year than in Roswell. Street view is April 2014 and she was home. Is that not creepy?

Actually, it's only creepy if you happen to know that the yellow blob between a bough of the tree and the shade is, in fact, ME sitting on the table. I think I was on the phone with either you, Dad, or Mimi at the time, as that's the only time I sit at the picnic table.

Okay, that is creepy. And I could also see the scooter too. It's amazing how much that camera sees.

Re: Found my skookie on Google Maps ! !

Here's mine, this picture was taken last summer. Bus is long white thing.



I know it was taken last summer because of strange mowed part in the back field.



Street view was taken in 08 so no bus, in the summer you can't see back to the house from the road anyway.

How are you seeing the scooter? It's not there. Could we possibly be seeing two differing photos? Weird.

Now, I'm not saying it's aliens but...

It's Aliens. Were you pulling a 'Tace and chasing a bumblebee or something?

Something is sitting behind the Class C. If it's not the scooter what is it? I know it's not your hitch-haul, that's on Claudia (I can see the yellow).

There's nothing behind the Class C, Mum. Can't even see the ladder so it must've been taken while Anna had it. Morning picture, too, looks to be about 10am or so, from the way the shadows are cast. Must be a Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday morning.

Can't see the hitch-haul's yellow at all (I'd only painted the sides). CAN see the tin-can that student was living in until he moved off to another campground. So this was taken early-mid spring.
