Are you a fan of Google Earth? I am. Google Earth allows you to inspect areas to explore before you arrive. You can determine which dirt roads are best to travel, view ruins of forgotten places and find boondocking campsites. The best part of Google Earth are the “Blue Squares” which indicate pictures posted by other users. Clicking on the blue squares reveals areas of stunning beauty, hidden canyons, old ghost towns or something else out of the ordinary. Most of these places are worthy of a visit.
Use blue squares to enhance your next RV trip.
After planning the route for my next RVing Adventure I always check out the blue squares on Google Earth to see what else lies along the route. When I find something that appeals to my sense of adventure, I load the coordinates provided on Google Earth into my GPS receiver and them I am ready to find and enjoy the site when I am in the vicinity. Need some examples: for a unique adventure check out the plethora of blue squares at 33 37.034N 116 00.150W in the California Desert. Discover a rarely visited covered bridge in Oregon at 43 45.506N 116 00.150W
Plan a blue square adventure on your next RV outing and enjoy!
