The live tracking has been removed from from your blog, pity. Our office was following your crossing to Island live.

The tracking is still there. As far as I know it never went away.

The memory flight website is down for some reason, but you can still track John on the Garmin tracking ap here:

I heard from him this morning after he arrived in Wick, Scotland, as he was enjoying an Irish whiskey and celebrating his crossing of the pond.

Irish whiskey! Sacrilege! It should be a wee dram of Old Poulteney! Wick's finest.

But that aside, very well done on reaching the first big milestone.

I look forward to reading about the onward progress.

Oops! my mistake. He actually said "Wick whiskey", I should have said "Scottish" not Irish, perhaps you are right, it could be Old Poulteney...

Just need to set the record straight. No sacrilege here. ;-)

In which case it's whisky, not whiskey

But well deserved either way.

There is a nice Museum even with a Blackbird!
