Google Streetview

I was messing around Google Street View and found some interesting things...

Our airport job jobsite vault....my truck parked to the right of that Chevy...


Our Lake St. Louis job jobsite vault and our Komatsu 400 excavator...


Our borrow site for the Lake St. Louis job and our Dae Woo 400 excavator with 20,000 lb. breaker attachment... That's a Bobcat dealership in the background.

Some of the truck drivers I know that do pick ups in Vancouver use the street view to see what they are dealing with when they have to pick up some goods for a customer. They can see if there is a place to back in or park a tractor trailer. I used street view when I was truck shopping I could get some visual references to find the dealer.

Punched in the address where my grandparents used to live to see what the new owner did to the property tore the house down and built condos.

well, they cruised by my house and they hav 3 pics of my shop and at least 4 of my house. My shop door is open and all my equipment is in the yard so I must have been doing oil changes or something. And my wife is there working in the kitchen.....On the one hand its kind of neat, and on the other, more exposure than I ever asked for.
