Default Rescue Map

One of those kids I have told me it would be cool to Google Map the Dog trips, so I tried it, and it is pretty cool! I was able to embed pictures and links to the stories on VAF.....

10 dogs, 8 airports and some good times!

Default VAF wide...

If anyone else that has done rescues wants to add their trips to this map, let me know and I will open edit access to you. We can make this VAF wide.

Default Can you?

Hi Pete,

Can you superimpose the milage near every course line? That would be cool.

Default Don't Know

Darwin,

It shows dist if you click the line. That might need to be good enough for now, but I will work on it.

...and to think I was recording my rescue flights in a simple text file! That's really cool, Pete. Oh BTW, I just walked in the door from helping to fly 35+ dogs and 2 cats from the ATL area to Ocala, FL. We were five planes in all and most of the dogs were small pups. There were 9 in my plane alone! Write up and pictures coming...left the camera in the plane.

Pete,
I placed my markers and played around with drawing lines until the app apparently got tired of me and stopped letting me put lines down. Gonna let it rest for now and try later. Then I will put in descriptors and pictures.
