Nice clean ride for you Jub, if you have never been to Andersonville Prison you should stop by, it is free and on the way to Americus. Everyone should visit that National Park .

I found it Terry. It was a little tough at first because I was using street view and it's a tad outdated. If you look, you'll see what I mean. Once I switched to satellite view, I saw it.

Ah crap, I just clicked on the links and they all link to the same place.

Time for damage control. I'll fix it.

Only foul is I screwed up copying the coords the first time around. Should be fixed now.

Added names of tag grabbers.

Thanks Jub, you da man.

I don't mean to sound whiney, but Al Tuna is correct! He and I had a discussion about this at RDV....you know, right before he biffed and got a booboo on his ankle.

Screen shots of GPS or other devices help, but it sure is easier for the mapper if you will go ahead and convert to decimal coordinates and post them as Al Tuna prescribes.

I'll get to work on the map soon. For some reason Google Maps is being a little quirky tonight.

Thanks for your patience.

Just FYI, there Jub.

The names you put with the tags don't match the format being used in the current map. The current map shows the person that set the tag not the person that found it. Just saying.

Good job on doing that though.

Damn. I'll fix it tomorrow. I should have double checked.

Allrighty then, quick fix. Just moved all the names down one so the name is the tagger and not the grabber.

Let me know if anyone notices a mistake. Although rare, I sometimes make one.

I also noticed that when Google Maps places the marker, if the name of a proper city is involved, it will use the salmon colored marker, otherwise it uses a green pointer and a salmon marker for Georgia. It must do that by default because I was just interested in the coordinates and their accuracy vs. the nomenclature. I hope that doesn't present a problem for phideaux

Here is a pretty good conversion program to convert your GPS min/sec readouts to degrees.

He made a run for the Alabama tag.

I was hoping he was going to grab the SE tag and bring it closer to a group of active taggers. I had plans to get it this coming weekend, but I now have to go to NC and trade the Husky for my Jeep....so I can trade my Jeep for another vehicle.
