I use Google earth quite a lot before I go to see the terrain, habitation, as well as distances involved.
a brilliant piece of software.
I just wish it was all high resolution, half way through some roads in the UK it is low res and you can't zoom in.
and sometimes I just visit places where my friends are touring so I can see where they are, and "join in" on the trip.
Or if someone has a route like the other day
"the highway to the sun" in glacier park I went and had a look for it on Google earth.
would be good if we could share KMZ files here as attatchments.
