Now I feel silly for assuming that "satellite images" meant, um, satellite images. Note to self: Research first, post later...research first, post later...

My carport for the AS and my campfire pit are visible in my yard AND the tire tracks leading to the carport, amazing. Then I looked on the new ipad map image and my AS is in the driveway at my house, gotta keep the windows closed.
