    Sort of like the mugshots post. use the ck5 map post (in the garage) to find your home, and post it. You'll have to go to the satt image to get it once you have it zoomed in etc. To capture the pic, use the print screen, and trim it up.

    Anyway, here is my little piece of the world. The red is my house & prop., the green arrow is my sis in laws, and her husband, and the yellow is my mother & father in laws place... their land takes up most of the pic, and extends off the pic as well, so I didn't bother to use a border.

    Wouldn't you know it, the pic. is messed up right over my house. They are a couple of years old, there's now a mall where it shows a vacant lot next to my subdivision.

    Screen capture (ctrl + Prnt scrn) and then paste it somewhere. I used Paint and then saved as a .jpg. :laugh:

    Thanks. My wifes family has had this land since 1875 :eek1: . Pretty land... but unfortunatly the city creeps closer and closer all the time. Probably only a matter of some years before we are surrounded by sub-divisions. :doah:

    Here is our place. One unit over from the pool. As you can see I have no yard...but it is a pretty decent place for the kids, and everything is nearby. The big building thing to the right was just built about 3 years ago...

    We still have 40 acres outside my hometown - I know how you feel. :crazy:

    There is still a small farm (cattle - about 15 acres) in the middle of BR. They are the only ones that have any room. Of course you could always subdivide and retire to the islands. :waytogo:

    yeah, i always tell my father in law.. "If you sell, make it a package deal ... your land, and my place as well". "if they want yours they gotta take ours."

    LOL, I don't want a subby right next to me. I like being able to walk outside and shoot when I want. Heck, my wife shot a nice little 8 pointer in front yard a couple of years back. She was changing the baby's diaper, and saw it out the window, took her Remington Mohawk .243, and gave him a "what fer". I was at the station, so she had her dad come up and get it. :p: I got home in time to help him clean it... :doah: I gotta start driving slower... :wink1:
