Curious over what time frame your dogs are averaging 14mph?

We just got the mini SD card to download from the Garmin to the computer, and have started to play with that, but my husband would really like to do the Google Earth view.

Thanks alot for going through the trouble of putting all of that up. I did it today - and had no idea I could do this. With the Astro, it shows my track and Ginger's track. VERY COOL!
