That's a great site.  Some of the sattelite pictures are old, but the topo maps are right on.  On the home page, there are some neat pictures of old bombers, stadiums and stuff.  But then, I'm easily amused. \:D/

I used to use good-old topozone.com, but it appears they've gone commercial at trails.com so no longer offer free maps. :(

Even CWOP has switched to Google maps from topozone
