Post New refresh of Fossett site
Well they refreshed it again.

No clouds, but it looks like it's getting cold there. A little snow, and some ice on lakes. This is probably the best shot we will get.

Here's the link. If you have Google Earth, clicking this link will open your program and take you to the area. Once you're there, enter these coordinates and that will give you the center of the 1 square mile area. It appears to be off a little. Probably due to the multiple overlays of the area.

one mile area coordinates: 38.2689-119.5507


" X marks the spot."

Heard somewhere Ed would be giving an update on C2C this coming week.

If google earth was able to give you the best shot of the area that they have since S.F. disappeared,
might be better, and nice to have in case finding him in the area becomes more difficult than
anticipated. Don't know if google saves their swaths for any amount of time, but snow can really
mess with things when one is trying to find something underneath it - on the ground or from the air.

Google appears to have created nonsense. The elevations are wrong, rivers are flowing parallel to the sides of ridge crests, the ground suface does not otherwise match the elevations, and there is the apparent stitching of unrelated map sections.

Bob, everything is just fine. What you are seeing is coyote's overlay. Just deselect it in the bookmarks and you'll see the proper aerial view.

Post Steve F. search
I spent last weekend in the search area doing some archaeological work.
There was a light dusting of snow at that time.
I wanted to take a scope and check the White Mountains east of hwy.395.
I did a little scaning with some high-powered glasses, but the snow was so heavy
that a couple in the party that I was with couldn't even get up to the "Bristilcone
Pine Forest", home of the oldest living things in the world.
The archaeologist for the US department of forestry in Bishop, his name is Greg,
knows more about the area East of the Sierras & Hwy 395 than any other person I have ever talked with regarding this area. He has hiked the area extensively. He and
his buddy, Scott, took some pictures for me from landings where I wouldn't send my mountain goat.

Anyone looking for Steve East of the Sierras and hwy 395 would do well to talk to Greg.
Anyone who has time to google Hwy 168 out of the town of Big Pine, on Hwy 395,
might see some interesting things.
