7. That is fun, or even Google Maps and Street View

I went and found my grandparents' house in Arizona a while back. I spent lots of time there every year. I even screen captured a Street View photo of it and printed and framed it for my mother, who grew up in that house. She was amazed.

Another time, my wife was attending a conference in Nashville, so I tagged along. The conference wasn't anything I cared about, so I used Google Maps in Satellite view to scout a couple of fishing spots near the hotel. I could zoom in on the river and even see enough to pick out places that should hold fish.

When we got there, I drove right to those spots, and had some excellent shore fishing to while away some time.

Cool beans.
