Where in North Florida are you stopping? If near St. Augustine let me know and I can help with "on the ground" needs.

Default Tracker

I'm guessing multiple airplanes on this trip have tracking capability (spot, aprs, etc), so others may chime in with their URL's as well. Here's the link to our Spot tracker. We launch from Dallas Saturday morning.

Rosie et all: Looking forward to following this years adventure - as are several hundred (thousand) other RV'ers. Checking the Spot tracker map and viewing the photos are highlights of my day. Safe travels, tail winds and fair skies. Jerry
