Where am I?

This is where I am right now (see the picture). Anyone know where this is? If you want a hint, my GPSr shows my coordinates to be 33 degrees 59.336 minutes N and 086 degrees 27.387 minutes W, with an accuracy of around 23 feet. Elevation is 1313 feet. Guesses? (Oh, and I'm at a family reunion. Wife's family.)

Well, best I can tell after plugging a lot of coordinates into various maps and scratching my head, I have discovered that you guys are somewhere southeast of Greenland and southwest of Iceland, in the middle of the sea.

I hope you brought plenty of warm clothing and changes of socks!

And I thought my in-laws were a little odd!

Heh... you left off the first part of the coordinates, the degrees part. That's the "big" part that threw your mapping off... :)

By the way, you forgot the elevation part - at 1313 feet, we'd be falling at an acceleration of 9.8 m/s2 (meters/second squared). For a little while, anyway. :)

If you want to cheat, here's a map of the location.

Any more guesses?

Palisades Park near Oneonta, where else?

We have a winner! Too bad all you get is the pride of being right... :)

Yes, it's Palisades Park in Oneonta. Here's a Google Map of the coord. Nice place... just watch where you put your foot! Some pretty serious drop-offs abound.

PS - I love the "in-laws" comment, Dean!
