Preparing for the Canal

All is well, and the Wild T is currently snugged in at the Shelter Bay Marina at the Panama Canal, preparing for canal transit on the 23rd. The crew is hard at work preparing for the next stages of the trip - and having trouble getting on the 'Net at the marina - so no photo updates just yet!

More details of the transit schedule when/if possible - the webcams along the canal seem to work quite well (you may need to install some browser plugins to get them to work - if you're interested, test it out prior to Transit Day! .)

The World ARC folks have (finally) fixed their "fleet viewer" and are also maintaining fleet position information in a Google Earth data feed - install the software (download it here) and then go to this World Arc page, and click on the World Arc logo. To "subscribe" to the fleet data, just choose "save" when you exit Google Earth. It's a great way to watch the trip progress!
