    A co-worker is planning on going to Moab in a few weeks and I was showing him the Redstone on Google Maps, pretty sure a few of us are in the current sat imagery. It looks like my truck is just to the west of the hot tub, and the ZJ is in front of the laundry room and ice machine next to the motorcycles. There's a red truck and a trailer by the canopy that I don't recognize, and I think maybe Jim's ZJ a couple spots down from mine. They don't give the exact date that the photo was taken like they normally do, or at least I can't see it in our super customized MS-IE at work, just that it was 2014. There may be a few of us in the Shitty Market parking lot too.

    The image I get in Google Earth sounds like what you're describing, date 6-8-13. When I go to Google Maps on Chrome I get the Google Image Copyright of 2014 and the image is different.
    95 ZJ, Lift, dents, and noise.

    If that is the date, your stuff should be around there somewhere too, that was the day you took the ZJK on Metal Masher. Tried finding some other rigs, maybe even on a trail, and haven't had any luck yet. The image of the hotel looks pretty early in the day too.

    Google Earth and Maps Satellite view are different images. The lot is pretty empty and Monica is there in Google Earth, but I saw a bunch of our rigs in Satellite view.

    By the canopy looks like the Trash Can (Krash80)
    I see Ken DeBoer's trailer on 191
    Jeremiah's old tow rig and trailer in the alley
    My tow rig by the gate to the softball field

    I'll have to scroll up to Shitty Market to see what's there. They have images and trail markings, and I didn't see any rigs on Poison Spider (in the lot or on the trail), so I suspect it was in the morning that the satellite took the pic.

    I looked closer, and it's before they resurfaced the parking lot. That was done this year I think.

    Saved for posterity

    Google Earth image, doesn't look like this one is during GSW



    The one Dave and I are talking about. I see Dave's, mine, Krash's. That's from Google Maps Satellite view, which you have to do some fancy footwork or have an old shitty browser to be able to see...i.e. shitty banker computer



    Jer's trailer and my trailer back in the alley, also Satellite view.



    To get to Google Maps where you have satellite view and not Earth view, you can use this link: http://www.google.com/maps/preview/?force=canvas

    So there's imagery from 2012 during GSW as well. So far I've found my gooseneck and maybe my truck. And Adam's Banana Boat I think too, lol.

    The Google maps satellite view has to be 2013. I'm pretty certain that is my gray truck and trailer in the back alley and unfortunately 2013 has been my only trip out there.
