    You can find part of the pacific fleet sitting in Pearl Harbor and San Diego Harbor.

    Yeah, some are pretty old. A friend of mine showed me his house, with a car in the driveway. He told me he'd wrecked that car a couple of years ago.

    Cool.

    Here's a Tomcat and an A-6 sitting on the pad at Boeing Field.

    Yeah, tried it last fall at school. Spent 3 hours on it, saw everything, never used it again. ;) Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, my house is in the boonies, so all you can see is a big green pixel about a mile on a side. Nobody cares about us hillbillies.

    Yeah we do, they were introduced in the early 1900's and breed in the wild. There's also reports that some have made it over hear from Australia under their own steam during storms

    You guys got sulphur crested cockatoos in NZ too? I had planned to do my Masters in Mass Communication in Australia, had planned to take Koko (my bird) along and ease him into the wildlife there. A big bird like that is meant to be free, but he's a pampered guy and will need special care.

    Can't let him into the wild in Pak. He's worth 200,000 Rupees there and would undoubtebly be caught again. In Australia I hear they are as common as we have crows and eagles in Pakistan.

    But my plans to move are on hold, so thats not good for Koko.

    the hand icon will be resting atop the roof of my house.
    The little white dot a couple of pixels west of the house is my motorbike. :)

    If you want to know why we're good sailors, zoom out from my house to the whole globe and see how New Zealand sees the rest of the world.

    Anybody else got some good locations?
    To find mine go to
