(I changed the KML file, just translated a spanish sentence to english, no more )
A lot time now I have needed to find that ranch out.
Puh, I am nearly 99% sure to have found it. I checked
out the street, a near city and a lot of maps and the
describtion (and online images) of the Ranch and checked
that out with the satelite images. Nothing in the near
could be the right place. It seems, that place can be
one, who is 100 years old (the ranch is it!), it has
tennis courts on the map, it has pools and houses, but
I am not so really sure. (rest of 0.1% ;-)
But, my real Opinion about the Amazing Race marks:
I dont like it so really, to see so much "Pit Stop" marks
somwhere on the maps. It looks carelessly placed - I have
found now a lot of marks all around there - and the only
information they give is, that in a tv reality show
sometime ppl was there, who hunted for money.
Who cares? ;-) Dont worry, but thats what I think. :-)
For example: By the Ezeiza airport is a waypoint from
Amazing Race with the label "3b. Buenos Aires". Nobody
know what it could mean. I wondered too and saw the
infos behind and it says nothing to me. (because its
the Amazing Race behind the story :-)))
I have placed around 70 (!) marks in the parque (de la
ciudad), where your pit stop 4 was misplaced. You remember?
All that have a lot of detailed information about the
park costs, carousel details (technical datas, describtion
aso.) and about many more. (70 kb is the KML now ;-)))
I dont have uploaded it yet. I will wait until I am ready.
And now try to think: Someone place informations like:
"I was here", "Mrs. Delarosa of Amazin Race was here" or
so. Hehe.. I really miss a LAYER in the programm for
different user uploads/marks. So real informations about
that what there is on that coordinates, and some virtual
informations, like your Amazing Race informations. Its not
really interesting for ppl you want informations ´bout this
I can understand the fever or the hobby around such
tv show and to poste the marks of the hunt online on
such a great platform like GoogleEarth is. I understand!
But I really miss more layers .. For real datas and for
Above you have my KML from the La Martina Polo Ranch.
I placed "some" ;-) informations in it. I hope the
informations will be shown (streamed) over GoogleEarth
too. I dont know, because its my first upload here.
I dont know, if it will be shown for all users in the
client, if they zoom that area and then probably they
see my mark and information. I dont know...
(Later I will post my detailed KML´s in own threads)
Tell me, if you was able to watch the mark from the
ranch and what you wanna do with the mark #4 in the
parque de la ciudad and ... how can you correct it?
I dont know ;-) You need to upload only a new KML
with the new position in your first post of this thread?
Is that all?
BTW: Can I upload (own thread) the >70 marks for the
park (amuesement park) in one KML file and will it
be published by Keyhole/Google for everyone? I dont know.
