    Default Kmz

    well first what you have to do is select the placemarks on GE by
    right-clicking on them then click save as and choose the place you want to save them to. Then go to the googleearthhacks main page and on the right hand side click Add File. Just fill in the spaces and then at the bottom wher it says KML or KMZ to upload just click browse and then look for the location where you saved the placemark, Then when all thats done just press submit.
