You can get street views on Google Maps. Google Maps

The overhead and the street view don't come close to matching. Two dead give away's of timing of three years ago for street view. My neighbours boat sitting in his driveway was sold three years ago and the travel trailer in my driveway was sold at just about the same time.

This is a neat feature to use, it also has a sinister side. Now a burglar only needs your address and read these forums to know when you are traveling (you did complete your profile, and have included personal info in previous posts?). They call up a map to your house, then plan to rob your house when your neighbors are usually at work.
I guess I'm paranoid and see boogymen behind every bush-BUT; that actually happened to us. I had posted we were going to travel for a few months on at least one of the RVing forums. We had been gone just one week and a moving van/truck turned into our driveway, my neighbor just happened to be home recovering from a heart attack. He approached the driver and asked why they were there. The response was " we saw the owners in (insert city) and they sold us all their furniture because they were going away for a long time." Neighbor then asked how long they would take to remove the furniture and leave, because it would take him about 2 minutes to call the sheriff, grab his shotgun and return.
That's my reasoning behind my statement.

We have a pretty good neigborhood watch. Neighbors already called the police twice in regard to suspicious characters on my property. That said, I also have an ADT sign and cellular backup.

Hi All,

I just looked at it , and it was when I was home! Since the MH was parked next to garage and the boat is dockside in the lake! I also had company since besides my jeep, there was a car in the driveway!!!

As far as the sinister side goes, when I am away so is the important stuff Me, dog, laptop & printer, camera, cell phone & MP3 player! So if someone wants to come in and take that bulky 2004 none flat screen wal-mart TV/VCR/DVD combo I say go for it !!!

Remember ALL: LIVE, LAUGH & ENJOY !!!
