    I have about 40 places that I have visted, plotted on Google Earth but have no idea how to send them to anyone. Any suggestions?

    How about upperdeck in harties and cullinan hotel?
    Cool - added Upper Deck.

    Forgive me, but which Cullinan Hotel should be on the map?

    You should be able to save them as a KML file from GE, haven't opened GE in ages though

    Google Earth, not google maps?

    I'm sure I can work with the KML file - I'm just not sure how to export a KML file from Google Earth...

    Cool thanks for the map and for your hard work.

    Was wondering if you can maybe add the websites on the comments of each of the stores?

    Been using Earth since way before Maps arrived. Never got around to moving over

    In some ways I still prefer Earth, but maps is always available, and works better for directions.

    If you move all of the places into a 'Folder', you can just right click the folder to share it, best way is probably
    'Save place as...' (Save as KML/KMZ)
    KMZ is just a zipped (compressed) KML.

    It's the old story; work gets a little crazy and projects like this fall by the wayside. Sorry chaps.
    I should have time to get it done during today.

    I have returned! Work got a little crazy for a while, but it's under control now and I have some time to update the map.

    I've added website links to all the locations (good idea Blommie), and added the Platinum car (bike) wash (thanks Pyro).

    Linus, any luck with Google Earth?

    Everyone else; any more suggestions? Slaapie Kaapies? KZN? Hellooo out there! Fire away guys.

    Dunno how to copy and e-mail the kml file . But have created a map on Google Maps. Go here http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UT...f6cefa3a26c5be and grab whatever you like. No details of what the places are like, just where they are
