This should make for an interesting thing. It doesn't specify which format... so I'll just go with the most common, and I guess the last digit can just add to the accuracy or something Razz Also, since after the decimal place is only 3 digits, I'm thinking they might be referring to after the (in my case: N49, W97) space.


Let's go see where google maps puts me and my fiancee:

Lessee... N49 30.1179, W97 06.0483:



C'mon... it should be fun. Give it a try with your significant other... or failing that, your pet, best friend, whatever.

For the sake of consistancy... Let's try Day.MonthYear, N: you, W: the other person. Unless you just wanna do something else. This idea is awesome in general :}

Hmm. This makes Kabuthunk’s B-day November 30, 1930 and his finance’s April 4, 1983. Now I admit I’ve only met you once Kabuthunk, but you carry 76+ years quite well Smile

The Turdle-femme's and my “coordinates” have us making out near St. Joseph, MB.

I like this game!

Whoops... my bad. I'll correct that momentarily. Man, how'd I miss that?

Hmm... in retrospect, fixing it makes virtually no difference at all anyway. Well... not gonna bother to re-take the google map image. It's moved over all of like... 10 feet or whatever Razz

Interesting exercise. Using myself and Gord, places us in the NW section at the intersection of Hwy 23 and Hwy 200 close to Morris.

Hmmmm....I think we've been there Very Happy

Pretty cool stuff. If I use my home coordinates, I end up near Dominion City and if I use my work coordinates I end up by the St.Andrews airport... I think it can be done!

Puts us out in a field a mile away from PBD's "Collector Edition H" cache.

Could be Do-able.... Embarassed

I figured I would try this out - I had to switch my birth date with K's since first location would not have worked. Better to let sig. other go first anyway. I am not sure this location would work by maybe someone that lives near Morris would know.
