I hope soon to get out with you guys.......busy at home and work right now
Thanks for the tips.
I spent hours google maps and street-viewing two days ago.
I can see where it would be valuable to bring along some tablet with a good internet connection (via cell phone I guess) to keep referencing it for exploring. My street view and such on my phone, alone, is too small to really rely upon.
