I'm looking forward to the Street-view challenge of the Canning Stock Route, across northwest Australia. Over 1,000 miles, with no fuel and unreliable water sources. 4WD convoy required, average time 2-3 weeks.

This is the small town in rural Appalachia where my dad grew up. The older homes were built 100 years ago by a coal mining company for the workers

Any disaster sites?

Here is where an EF5 tornado ground homes down to the foundation in Smithville, Mississippi USA. Note the crosses marking where several people died

Here is an impromptu memorial maintained for eleven years by the people of Victoria, Texas, to mark the spot where 19 immigrants, locked inside a truck, were left to die from heat and suffocation.

It features mostly jugs of water to relieve the thirst of the victims.

In Berlin, the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church was the only bombed out building that was left in place intact after WWII.

Rather ironic and foreshadowing street name - Elm Street (Nightmare on Elm Street).

The name of the movie was chosen exactly because nearly every city/town has an Elm Street, one of the most generic street names in America.

There are 5,233 Elm Streets in the USA, with numbefs or trees taking up 14 of the top 15 places::

Second (10,866)
Third (10,131)
First (9,898)
Fourth (9,190)
Park (8,926)
Fifth (8,186)
Main (7,644)
Sixth (7,283)
Oak (6,946)
Seventh (6,377)
Pine (6,170)
Maple (6,103)
Cedar (5,644)
Eighth (5,524)
Elm (5,233)

Interesting. Our most common are also quite ordinary

1. Rantatie - Shore
2. Kirkkotie - Church
3. Koulutie - School
4. Myllytie - Mill
5. Rinnetie - Ridge
6. Välitie - In between
7. Mäntytie - Pine
8. Teollisuustie - Industrial
9. Kuusitie - Spruce
10. Rantalantie - On the shore

I still prefer 123 Fake street.
