Yes, it's very cool. I did the same Google earth thing and saw it was difficult to traverse in the dark. And I thought of the knee as well. Can't rule out a flashlight, though that would've been risky.<quoted text>
Maybe along the edge. The woods are pretty dense and it's not flat land. Would explain a tweaked knee, too.
Not inferring that I've been there. I downloaded google earth and their program is excellent. If you choose to, you can fly a plane with that program. You can fly over an area that shows all the houses, buildings and waterways. I flew around the bluffs over by Bledsoe Cemetery a few times and around the swift house a time or two. That's not all I do though. I've flown through the Arch in St. Louis, into the Grand Canyon and every other site I could think of. It shows a lot of topographical information. It shows the woods near the house as a natural drainage system for the immediate
area. It's got little ravines, like a finger system, that collects water runoff. A little creek emerges out of the area and runs off to a larger creek.
To be able to travel that area at night, there would have to be a clear, well worn path.
Signing off for the night. Be back tomorrow. BTW loved the heckle and jsuckyl show.
