Re: Hi everyone

Thanks for the up date, how are the kido's doing? Hope all is well, sounds like it is getting better. I had concussion syndrome for a year or longer. It went away, just took time.

Re: Google Earth?

I also use it to orient myself with an anchorage or harbor. It helps you get a visual feel for the place. Not that we don't use charts but it's another aid to help you out.
