    I just got lazy about going back and finding that super long url. It's not like anyone but my wife will ever read it regularly. So I'll never get rich from shilling my blog and getting people to read ads that aren't there.

    You know that part of town where houses spring up faster than cube rats at the sound of free food? Yeah, that's Highlands Ranch. I've watched an entire tract of houses go up behind my girlfriend's house in the 10 months we've been dating. Crazy stuff....

    and cccorlew, I's just messin

    Cool. (MyMaps) I wish it let you merge lines though. I kept double-clicking by accident, and it "completed" my lines.

    Here's the portion of my commute that's on a MUP.

    This is my current commute to work, back is about the same:

    http://www.routeslip.com/routes/25296

    Once I'm reconditioned and not so sick, I'll be extending it back out to ~8 miles, right now I shamefully kinda feel it after all the wind and crap on this short ride in.

    I use routeslip to keep a rough log of my trips/mileage, love it.

    Route Slip looks cool. I'll have to check that out.

    Here is my route on Gmap-Pedometer. http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=835725

    The vertical profile would look something like a flat line.

    I'd like more hills but oh well.

    On Priest road on the bridge (SR202, Salt river) This bridge is right under the landing path for planes as you pointed out.
    Planes fly right over your head. I had a 747 land one time and timed it just right. WOW
