ICBM address: lat +34.44.24.5, long -117.15.14.2

You need an elevation to go with that. Having your ICBM thunk into the ground without exploding is quite embarrassing (nukes don't go off on impact, they have to be triggered by a mechanism that makes Swiss watchmakers look pretty clumsy).

    Sigh. Some people are never satisfied.

    Anyway. I can eyeball it as about 20m, but my GPS tells me 30m; I don't know whether it's a different datum that causes it, or whether I'm being conservative in my guesses. (The USGS topo that I found shows my place as being right on the 20ft contour, so...)

    You did also help me realize that I mistyped my latitude. Going back and correcting it now.
