Unfortunately Google Earth now expects the coordinates the other way round. If no-one else wants to produce a new list, I guess I will have to, but it won't be this year.

This should be on the list if I could work out the coordinates, not good when you've got a long road to travel..something about a grain of sand in the moccasin...deep..
If you cannot get lost then, you cannot be found, really deeep.......


Stan's the man....Update from the Prof: 25.7158OO,32.624156

So now you can't get lost just ask for 'de white nutter in da cool black jeep..8)
