Try Microsoft's Live Local site. Not only does it do maps and directions, but aerial photography as well. And, if you are in an area that has the detail (Like Minneapolis/St. Paul) you can switch to the "Bird's Eye View" for a REALLY close up shot!

how close can you zoom in? the areas im interrested in in western minnesota dont have near enough the resolution im looking for on google earth. i guess i will have to crack a beer, sit my butt back down and check this out tonight.

well the plus side is that live local offers better resolution when zooming way in, but unfortunately its done through the use of outdated aerial photos that are at least 6 years old. i guess im going to have to pay to find what im looking for.

Yeah, unfortunately, it depends on the area. Check out the detail in the twin cities area. Its amazing. If you want newer high quality aerial images check out the site of MN LMIC data, alot of it is from the last 3 years. Let me know if you cant find it I will get you the address.

      Not a good sign when the thumb doesn't fit in the mouth.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
