Google Earth Files, Maps, and Related Files
- Paddling South Carolina Rivers (KMZ) – A Google Earth file compendium of all the paddling trails and river access points in South Carolina
- Local Paddling Venues (Google Maps) – A Google Maps link featuring short out-and-back paddling trips within a couple of hours of Greenville, South Carolina. These were selected for their appeal to solo paddlers and because these locations (with a couple of exceptions) have fewer boat traffic.

- South Carolina Hauntings (KMZ) – A Google Earth file companion to John Boyanoski’s Ghosts of Upstate South Carolina. The file is also highlighted in the Google Earth Community Layer.
- Greenville History Tour (KML) – A Google Earth file based on a tour created by the Greenville County Library. The file is also highlighted in the Google Earth Community Layer. NOTE – the KML file links to images located on the library’s server. These images files have been moved, so the links are now broken. I’ll fix it when I get a chance.
- My Paddling Resume (KMZ) – A Google Earth file of my paddling trips over the years. (Seriously in need of an update.)

I’m planning a paddle trip across SC in May of this year. I’ll be taking the Broad through Columbia and have been able to find info on all the dam portages except the one in Columbia. Any info about the best way to portage this dam will be greatly appreciated.
Do you happen to have an updated “My Paddling Resume (KMZ)” file? I would love to see the trips you have made.
Enjoyed the write-up on Athens.
Hi Tom, I am interested in your maps of the old fire lookout towers, but the Google map links seem to be broken. Can you direct me to where they might be found now?
Jared, here’s a direct link to the KML file on Dropbox – http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/548509/HistoricTowers.kml
Fantastic. I am curious about the one on Bulls Island, a trip to check it out may be coming in the next few months.
That one has me intrigued, too. I was down there for some sunrise photography at the “Boneyard” and spotted it.
