Google Maps Street View Captures another Maniac

Postby Lx2run » Thu Feb 11, 2010 8:07 pm

I can't quite remember the day but I was running just north and east of Woodstock one day early last summer when I saw this car go down the road with a strange set of cameras on top and I think I saw the Google logo somewhere. Any way today I looked on Google Maps and Street View is available for most of Woodstock so I went on a search to see if I was captured and there I was. Kinda cool and fun but I think I might have used up my 15 minutes of fame right there.

Just re 8) member, I knew you before you were famous.
next up:


This broken wing will fly again
One fine day
This blackbird's mute gonna sing again
One fine day

So all you sinners come out
And all you drunkards crawl out
Come into the light of one fine day

My first question when I saw your posting was "Woodstock has a street?" Once I saw the shot, my question remains "Woodstock has a street?" :wink: :)

Very cool though!
