CacheCrazy.Com: Guess where I went for lunch today?

Guess where I went for lunch today?

Despite the terrorist warnings and evacuation, I went to The Eiffel Tower in Paris, France for lunch today. Then I stopped by St. Peter’s Basilica Rome, Italy and said “Hi” to Ben, decided to take a quick look at Denver, Co and time was running short so I quickly checked out Atlanta, GA and rushed back to Scranton, PA (I didn’t want to be late for a conference call). No, I wasn’t smoking that legal weed at lunch like all the yuppies are doing these days. I went on an all expenses paid trip complements of Google Earth.
If you haven’t tried Google Earth you don’t know what you’re missing. It’s a free global download mapping software that literally takes you anywhere on earth that you want to go. At first it’s a little cumbersome getting use to the navigation and such but in a short time you too will be falling from space and landing right in your front yard if you want to. I love the 3D feature but it takes some practice. Once you get it you can move on to other features that are of interest to you. Name it, parks, hiking trails, secret service buildings, bomb shelters, volcanoes, mountain peaks, ocean floors and oh yeah, Geocaches!
You heard me right; Geocaches are available for viewing on Google Earth. Want to check out that 5/5 extreme cache that you heard about? Why not navigate it in 3D and see for yourself how high and steep that cliff is without even leaving your house. Please know that this is no replacement for the actual hunt and if you do find the cache in 3D, no, you don’t get a smiley! So, exercise is still encouraged along with fresh air and nothing can take the place of that fit you can throw in the middle of nowhere when you’ve reached your limit searching for that elusive cache but, if you’re looking for fun, education, and a great way to kill some time (did I ever mention I don’t sleep much?) Google Earth is it. I am going to set up a game with it and teach my kids some geography, the fun way.
Tonight, I’m going to get the kids in bed, kiss the wife good night, grab a cold one (bottled water) and nestle in for a lengthy exploration of the moon starting with the landing sight of Apollo 11. I have a cache all ready for hiding, he, he, he. Yep, you can go to the moon too, cool right? So when you see me on the news in the morning saying “one small step for man, one giant step for geocachers everywhere” you heard it first right here on CacheCrazy. Hope I don’t get muggled by aliens. 10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2- I have to take off now……
Bon Voyage

I really love Google Earth. You can visit so many places, and it's free of charge. I haven't been on it in a while so I'll have to get on again. Thanks for the reminder.

I tried to mess with it the other day, and you're right, it's confusing! My kids were asking me to show them all these places, and I was so lost!


I hear that. I was fumbling and bumbling at first too. You have to play with it for awhile and try and get the hang of it. A good starting point would be to take the sightseeing tour. Then you can use that template to put in your own locations. Don’t forget to check out your own residence and people you know. A few cool places are the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls (very cool in 3D too) and Mt. Rushmore. Keep it simple and then go from there. Don’t get frustrated and just enjoy your time on it. Google it and read some of the forums and group postings. They are filled with some good advice and don’t give up on it then before you know it you’ll be cruising around like a pro. I still have a long way to go and I have put about 50 hours into it so far but I’m getting there. Like anything else the more you use it the easier it gets.

Về phần Lang Lễ cùng Diễm Ma, đám người Thanh Đồng, Nhạc Thành cũng không lo lắng, thực lực Lang Lễ, cả Cực Nhạc Thành cũng không có người nào có thể làm gì được, thực lực Diễm Ma cũng không yếu, tại Mê Vụ Tùng Lâm tự bảo vệ mình cũng không có vấn đề.

Nhạc Thành đem Xích Ngạo Tuyết trực tiếp thu vào trong trữ vật giới chỉ, thu thập sơn động hết thảy, sau đó cũng ly khai sơn động. Cực Sắc Đạo Nhân đã chết rồi, bố trí cấm chế ở trong sơn động cũng tự nhiên mất đi tác dụng.

Ly khai sơn động, dựa theo nguyên thần trí nhớ của Cực Sắc Đạo Nhân, Nhạc Thành đi ra bên ngoài, dọc theo đường đi ngẫu nhiên đụng phải mấy Thiên tiên cùng Thiên ma, đều bị Nhạc Thành xảo diệu né tránh.

Mà ngày thứ ba, Nhạc Thành cảm ứng được chỗ của Lang Lễ cùng Diễm Ma, đám người Thanh Đồng, tìm được mọi người rồi, Nhạc Thành lúc này mới thở dài nhẹ nhõm một hơi, chính bản thân lúc này mới xem như tạm thời an toàn.
