Google Earth Google Earth

You can select any Google Earth icon on our pages to zoom into a location being discussed or to follow along while we drive.

You must have Google Earth installed before using this feature. Google Earth is a free program and is easy to install.

Once you have Google Earth installed, click on any of our Google Earth icons.
When prompted choose "Open"
Hint, if you Un-check the box that says "Always ask before opening this type of file" you won't have to approve opening Google place marks each time.

When you close Google Earth you will be asked whether to save temporary items to your My Places folder. If you are just checking out one of our place marks, you will want to chose "No", unless it's somewhere you really want to visit for yourself, then chose "Yes".

You can have Google Earth follow along as we travel using the Google Earth location link found on our "On the road" webcam popup page. This won't work with other Google Earth place marks because they don't move.

  1. In Google Earth, select "Add → Network link"
  2. Name the link something so you know it is us and not some other placemark
  3. In the Link field enter the following   http://CliftonCreek.net:443/cowboy.kml
  4. Enter a description if you like
  5. Click on the "Refresh" tab
  6. Under "Time-Based Refresh" select "Periodically" from the drop down list
  7. Adjust the time to 60 seconds or longer
    Please do not set refresh shorter than 60 seconds for our placemark
    Faster refresh rates won't improve your viewing and may limit other's access to this feature
  8. To have Google Earth follow along with us, check the box "Fly to View on Refresh"
  9. You can change any of these settings by right clicking on the placemark and choosing "Properties"
    The above will add us to your "My Places" list
    You can keep the placemark there, just uncheck it unless you are actually following along

Trailer Location Google Earth

This is a placemark of our trailer location. You must have Google Earth installed to use this feature Google Earth. The mark is updated once an hour when we are connected to the internet and my main computer is on. If the trailer has no internet connection or my primary computer is off the last known location and time will be shown. The bottom point of the green pin marker shows our location within about 50 feet.

Camera Notes

Trailer cameras are updated every 15 minutes.
The last image is always available even if the box says Camera Off
Our Internet connection is usually through our truck so if the truck is not near the trailer, those images can't be updated.
