San Diego County Rides
On the "Stories" page on the "Written Stuff" menu and shown here, is the PDF file of one of my books, "Calypso Does San Diego County". This page goes beyond the video, that the book inspired "In My own way" found on the Music page. If you click on the icon to the right here it will open that file in a separate tab and allow you to take a look at it. You can also download the file so that you can read it at some other time in the future and you can continue your tour of the site. But know that there is another way of looking at the "Doing San Diego County". And this method provides you with Google Earth and allows access to video's of the tours of San Diego County from the map vantage point, with the "map" being my Rides in Calypso around San Diego County.
THIS PAGE IS A WORK IN PROGRESS
I am currently working on this page, such that you will be able to click the map shown below, which will open Google Earth as a Browser with the "County Ride" File open.
THIS CAPABILITY DOES NOT EXIST YET.
BUT FOR NOW. You can certainly click on the "Google Earth PRO" Icon on the left and download/install it on your PC, or you can click on the ICON on the right, and that will take you to the Browser version of Google Earth and you can upload the "Project", which is the file below (the "ATT" with the paper clip).
Once you have "Google Earth" open and can open the file/Project. Any item shown in Green is a link to a YouTube Video. And note I will be adding more videos and links as time progresses. (Note a push pin in Dark Blue is a 360 video, which will allow you to look around, IF viewed in YouTube.) Anything in any other color is either a "Google Earth" item, or it pertains to the book "Calypso Does San Diego County".
As you zoom in and tour the map in Google Earth, anything in Light Blue color, are links back to the appropriate page on this web-site.
As you get more familiar with Google Earth and this particular File, you will note that it has folders, which can be turned off and on depending on what you wish to view. HAVE FUN.
The paper clip ICON shown here on the right is the "County Rides" file. It is a KMZ file and it is a map file that will open in Google Earth. If you click on the ICON it will download to your computer. THEN, you can open that file and it will open Google Earth with the Calypso San Diego County Ride file. Once the map is open it will show you a map with many things added, most show you the adventures of the trips that were behind the making of the Book "Calypso Does San Diego County". BUT, some of them are links to the videos taken on other trips made around the county. Use the controls of Google Earth, to zoom into different parts of the county and the "Rides", those in green are YouTube Video Links. Pointing and clicking on the video links will open YouTube within Google Earth and allow you to also connect to YouTube if you wish.
