The Guy from Google Earth
Yesterday I was in Arkadelphia to get my truck serviced and on my way home I stopped at Wendy's for lunch. I noticed out the window where I was sitting a car pulled up and parked by my truck. It was a "Google Earth" car with the funny looking antenna and camera mounted on top.
As the driver walked toward the front door I could not believe my eyes. I recognized this guy. He was a well known Arkansas Geocacher that you all know. I was just shocked.
When he come in the door I called out his name, Now we were both shocked but at this moment he had that deer in the headlights look on his face. He could not believe that anyone in Arkadelphia would know him.
We both had a good laugh, ate lunch and walked to the Google Car. I wanted to see all the equipment. I was impressed but I was dumb founded also. Here is the High Tech Car taking pictures all over Arkansas and with all that High Tech equipment the Laptop was mounted on a 2x4.
It was good to see Google use a little redneck technology.
Don't be surprised if you are out at lunch and "HIKER RON" takes your picture and puts it on Google Earth Street View. :D
