Default GoogleEarth...The Game

Ok, what you'll need:
°
Google Earth..

lol. moving on.

Alright, the point of this game is to see who can find the most locations in the world of a specific target. Let's start with helipads. Search GoogleEarth for helipads accross the globe and then post the coordinates (which are located on the bottom left hand corner of the screen, right under the compass). You will need to know the "degree" symbol command, which is...Alt+0176 then release alt.

Let's set a deadline of sunday night at 11:59 and then we will add up the scores. Lol, let's give this a shot to see if it lasts long amongst the sea of posts.

start now.

EDIT: Also, No duplicates of the same coordinates. All must be unique locations.

Scores:

Wombat - 11
Amorssang - 5
extendcradle - 4
neochivers - 1
