I just recently discovered another neat thing on Google Earth. You can tilt the view down so you are looking out over the terain, then rotate it around. You can also "fly" around, at whatever altitude you wish.
We are looking at areas around Asheville and Knoxville to hopefully move to, and found that a really good way to see how the terrain around any home listed looks. We do want to be in or near mountains, as we will probably not find as nice mountain views as we are used to from our home here near San Diego.
I used to fly quite a bit, and have had fun the past few days "flying" around here, and it is remarkably like actually doing it. I also fly around prospective homes to move to. Makes a new area familiar even before you go there.
I wish they had the high resolution that some places have all over. We have nice detail here in the San Diego area, can see my old truck in the driveway, but Knoxville and Asheville are low resolution, cannot see individual houses even, except for maybe light spots in the trees.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
