I was just wondering if there was such a thing the other day... I'm guessing there's probably a website out there that's a repository for these types of things.

Moving to non-geocaching.

Yeah, there is a site devoted to all the things Google Maps and Street view has caught. Can't think of the site off the top of my head though.

KayBaynPapaBear used to have a puzzle cache based on calculating the height of a jet he found on GoogleEarth above Burnsville.

I think the one Arctic found was the same one he used for the puzzle.

I just noticed this too. Yeah, it was the same one. I remember helping KBaynPapaBear create the puzzle.
