Not one, but two people recommended that movie after hearing about my display.

I just put my location on the map and When I zoomed in with their satelite map I was able to see my truck in my parking lot:shock:, I can't even get fed ex to find me half the time. However it would be better if this was a map just for LOR forum users.

By the way Evana, according to this map, You are one of the displays closer to me. I am about a half hour or so from hacketstown. I think Budd Lake is pretty close to there.

My satellite picture is at least three years old. I zoomed in and my pool isn't there.

( that would mean more work and fun:)) I will let you know if My 2008 display is worthy of a 40 minute trip LOL

Nice to see you on the map. Map Quest just updated their map of our area... and it is still older than this one. If you plug in my address, not only does it show me in three different towns, your driving directions from them will take you right past my front door, and into another county.

That is what I get for living in the middle of no where, as much as I like it.:P

Wow, there are updated maps for my little part of the hicks, shocking considering how little there is around me. ;) Seems like a very current snapshot considering both our front and rear decks are visible and so is our new "expanded" driveway. Probably not more than 6 months old. Again, wow. :D

(btw, last I checked the maps for my area were 5 or 6 years old)

Put the address in for my house, it was two door down from where it actually was. Photo maybe up to three years old. Shows my new lawn, which we put in about 3 years ago this June.

My photo is older than three years, I've planted trees in my back yard and they are not in this photo. local.live.com does a better job in this area.

Local live looks like an older picture of my house. Front yard landscaping was done, but not the back. Noticed my boat is in the front of the house, which means I was either taking it out or bring it back in.

When I switch to the Birds Eye view, even a older picture. Shows my 70' pine tree, which is gone. And have our old truck which we got ride of 4 years ago.

Yea, wonder if there is a way to get a real recent photo. That would be cool if there was.

Sounds like live.com has newer pictures here and older ones near you. Here it looks like bird's eye view have been taken within 2 years.

Too bad it's only available to Americans. Too funny the number of lights across the Eastern Seaboard.

Thanks, pretty cool. Satellite images are pretty old, but, does that really matter, we're showing off our current displays and sharing locations right?

Added My location.

See ya.

In other fly over service photos I can be seen in my back yard looking up at the airplane taking the photos. I get concerned when I see a very low flying airplane below the minimum flight altitude - worried that it might be a plane in trouble. It is always fun to look and compare the quality of photos!

I put in my place; on the map it is a block away and across a 'wash' so you can't get here from there. Put in another value and this time got it in the back yard across the street, so I guess that is as good as it gets.

Any way to get rid of that first try?

This photo of my place is at least 5-6 years old. May be my Truck in the Driveway and it is definately before I added the workshop in the back. The photo may have been from before I even owned the place. There's another site, I can't exactly remember where that has street level views of our neighborhood and a Sat view that is only about 3 years old.

Whenever I see a low plane/ helicopter - I see if it is red and white - then look for the smoke.
