Cruising Florida with Google Earth

First download Google Earth from

http://www.google.com/earth/index.html

 

after installing Google Earth on your computer, in Microsoft Internet Exployer, "right click" the link below and "Save Target as:"

http://www.pageproffitt.com/trips.kmz

you will down load a kmz file of routes and waypoints to be used in Google Earth. Double click on it and open it in Google Earth in your "Temporary Place". Drag it up into your "My Places", turn off and on as you wish to see the different routes listed by folder.

The routes and waypoints I have cover from Jacksonville and the St Johns River, down the East Coast of Florida and the Keys, as well as the Lower West Coast of Florida and the Okeechobee Waterway. Also included are bridge names, heights and location along the Intracoastal waterway.
