And what is this: 59 G 633997.98 m E 5179302.40 m S ?

Here's the house I am working on for a friend in Big Bear City:11 S 514682.63 m E 3790822.72 m N at 6944 feet altitude.

Here's the world-famous "The Wedge" in Newport Beach where I body surfed, much younger in the '60s/'70s/'80s mind you: 11 S 418204.26 m E 3717436.51 m N This was in the background in "Gilligan's Island" when the SS Minnow left port. The actual camera placement for that opening shot was at: 11 S 418561.63 m E 3717647 m N

This is the first home my (deceased) wife and I owned in Costa Mesa, California: 11 S 417005.92 m E 3726158.63 m N on the corner of Coronado and Presidio.

Where I lived with my peeps from 1961 until about 1964: 11 S 408774.00 m E 3725580.55 m N. This was just 10 feet above sea level, yet look how far it is inland! That's why it's called "Huntington Beach".

Here's the house I lived in about 1959-61 in Pompton Plains, New Jersey: 18 T 560078.00 E 4534885.57 m N and the high school I attended then (Pequannock Township HS) : 18 T 558439.63 m E 4534629.23 m N. That's an Indian name (Pequannock Tribe) : there were a lot of Indian tribes in that area, but these are not your "mud" Indians. These were powerful warrior nations that the British and French "persuaded" to become soldiers in some of the famous James Fenimore Cooper (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Fenimore_Cooper) (b:September 15, 1789 d:September 14, 1851) books, like The Last Of The Mohicans (http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/27681) and The Deerslayer (http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/3285) and the assorted adventure of: Natty Bumpo. Being born in New Jersey himself, he had intimate knowledge of the Indians of the area and wrote profusely of them.

I scattered my first wife's ashes here: 11 S 537097.83 m E 3714244.31 m N after the night she and I fell in love with the view from here in the full moon and snow.

One of my favorite mountain lakes for trout and bass in season: 11 S 528924.60 m E 3725259.23 m N called Lake Hemet, it is only about 17 minutes away from me where I am sitting right now.

I was just surfin' around and thought I'd share some of that with youse guys.

Google Earth as we use it here can't understand those weird coordinates, must be some native American lingo? :clap

I see those coordinates are in "Universal Transverse Mercator" (in the 3D view options), but I don't see an easy way of jumping to those locations.

I assume you were referring to the little "alien" figure on Quail Island for the first one, but it was way too fiddly to search for Joe's coordinates, so haven't bothered to get to the others.
