That's cool. Before I moved up here I spent hours 'driving' around on Google Earth to all of the places I knew I'd be at in the first week or so I was here. I'm always telling people that this is the easiest town I've ever found to get around in, but I really think the time spent googling had a lot to do with that. My job and the area around it was really familiar to me right from the start.

I miss Anchorage A LOT!! I can't wait to move back in August. I've been away for 6 1/2 years and I think about it all the time. I hated it when I lived there, but I was young. Now that i've grown up, I want to go back badly.

I love Anchorage, but I don't really have a completely logical (or rational) explanation for why. Somehow it reminds me of the hometown that I left some 20-odd years ago. That hometown has changed so much that it doesn't exist anymore. It's like this place is caught in a bit of a time warp - there's more innocence here than is left back where I come from. The combination of that feeling, clean air, good tasting tap water, nice people, good working conditions, great schools, beautiful scenery - honestly, it doesn't get much better than this!

Google now has an option for 3D anaglyph street view.

Just click that little street view guy. When his glasses are down, the scene is rendered in 3D (glasses required).
