It was a little over two years ago that I first drove the Pioneer Ford F-150 Lightning Tribute out in west Georgia for an exclusive review. After some tame-ish driving on country roads near the dealership, I was taken to an empty corner of a small regional airport where I could freely burn tires and produce more scented white smoke than a Subaru meet. The results were glorious. As I was looking up the name of the airport on Google Maps, I just had to check on something.
Toggling satellite view revealed that my mark on that ramp was captured by the omnipotent Google satellites. It’s online and preserved for all to see… until they update their imagery. I was giggling like a child, just as I was while actually making those marks. There’s something particularly satisfying about having a moment like that captured by a satellite. It’s like making faces for the security camera monitors at Walmart.
Have you ever made your mark on a satellite map with some Grade A Hoonage? Whether it was expected or not, post up whatever you’ve been able to find from your friend’s wife’s daughter’s teacher’s brother’s uncle’s hooning session while they borrowed your car for a few hours in Mexico.
