L & L - I believe that would be Latitude and Longitude but maybe I should wait for Klattu to answer that.

I would use Lat and Long. BTW, tasking a satellite is costly (government or private) and air photo from a plane can be as cheap as $300 - know of one done of a business one time (not me actually but a friend) and that was only 2 years ago after Katrina. BUT - last year I had hoped to get an AIRSTREAM group picture - now that would be do-able, any one else????

clancy_boy,

Are are talking about everyone pitching in $10-$30 each so we can get an aerial picture of the group? If so, count me in.

During the peak of summer, you can get a ride from Ft.Walton in a helicopter...or you used to could.
Maybe we could find something like that.

I was thinking along the lines of renting a bucket lift from a local rent-all place and sending a person up to get a group photo with several or all of the trailers in a shot. It would take some coordination and time but would be neat. Maybe not all would want to unhook to move but several could to get a great shot.

Just a thought, me dreaming.....

Just a thought...not as formal, but since almost everyone would be there, a group shot could be taken early on at the potluck, perhaps from a ladder for height.~G

A photo would be great but the view on the Topsail website barely shows campers because of the trees. I'm sure you would see some but many would be blocked from above. I see no harm in trying and would be willing to pitch in just don't see how to get them all in.

As far as a group shot - maybe on Sunday time it for a mass departure and get 10 trailers in a shot with all the attendies that can be there. Just looking for one of those classic rally photographs.....

According to destinhelicopter.com, a 20 minute ride for two is $175.00. With digital photography, we could take the SOB'S out of the picture!

We could drop silver ping pong balls with door prizes on them...
Oh wait...
Clues to a scavenger hunt...or fortune cookie messages...or get out of jail coupons after getting arrested for littering.

You have a Professional Pilot attending, the catsandi is listed as
Occupation:
Firefighting Pilot/ Aircraft Mechanic

She may only want to make a pass if the party gets to hot and the trailers burst into flames. It would be fun to chip in and let her rent an aircraft and take someone up to take pictures. She may only be rated for one of those huge aircraft that drop the fire retardant then she could take the entire rally for a flight.
