OK - We checked out our street view. We thought it was hilarious that the 4Runner and whichever trailer we owned at the time are gone! We must have been out having fun.

They caught ours too That is *actually* the baby Sprinter Van - looks like a stretch limo in this view!
In our neighbourhood, no one even blinks about the fact that we store the trailer in the driveway all summer, when it isn't out camping. In the winter it parks on a massive driveway in Bowness.

Microsoft's Bing Streetside appears to have so little coverage that it is useless. From Wikipedia:
Quote:
Streetside provides 360-degree imagery of street-level scenes taken from special cameras mounted on moving vehicles. Launched in December 2009 it contains imagery for selected metro areas in the United States as well as selected areas in Vancouver and Whistler, British Columbia associated with the 2010 Winter Olympic Games (example: Richmond Olympic Oval). Selected cities in Europe were also made available in May 2012.

Funny, I sold my '86 Westy in that color last year also.

Our Westy was an '85 with the water-cooled 1.9 liter engine, so we drove up mountain passes in the right lane with the flashers on (I was envious of those '86 models, with the 2.1 liter engine). One of the best things about towing our Escape is being able to keep up with traffic.

I was lucky, mine had a new GoWesty 2.5 in it and ran pretty well. Great little campers, but too small as 'll for us now.

For Mac users I know the Grab utility works well, but if you remember these two key combinations you will save considerable time, especially when doing multiple screen captures where you want to select the area. I use it for preparing training manuals, capturing areas as small as a screen icon.

Shift-Control-Command-4 : Captures the area you select to the clipboard, so you can paste it into a document or wherever you can paste.

Shift-Command-4 : Creates a PNG image of the area you select and puts it on the desktop. I use this to ensure I have a copy of my online order confirmation, just in case it an email copy isn't sent. (it happens)


And finally, here is a photo of me working to prevent leaks on my old Nash trailer. Despite all my efforts at regularly resealing, two major leaks (5 years apart) destroyed this trailer. I can't wait for Google to get a pic of my new Escape when we get it in May!

"He who laughs last"- or something....would keep an eye out and keep your car doors locked. Plenty of knuckleheads around here looking for easy scores to buy ......
