2/7/2014 – Google Maps

Just having fun screwing around with Google Maps.  Here’s a map of our trip so far.  According to GM, it’s 854 miles long and should take 16 hrs, 22 minutes.  I totally agree with the 854 mile part, but it’s taken us 6 days for an average of 142 miles per day.  Seems about right.  According to GM, again, we’re traveling slightly faster than a bicyclist would be expected to go if he pedaled for 12 hours a day.

BTW, for some reason (meaning I probably just haven’t figured it out yet), the “whole trip” will show up as just the last couple legs.  You’ll have to click on “View larger map” and then zoom out a couple times to get the whole picture.  Also, if you’re just reading this in e-mail, you won’t see the map at all, just the “View larger map” link.  To see it in context got to the actual blog.

Steve & Lulu... retired. Had enough of the cold wet dreary fall/winter/spring in the Pacific Northwest. Bought a boat, fixed it up, sold our home and sailed to Mexico in November, 2010. Been here ever since except for occasional forays to the States (summer only, thank you) to visit the kids, parents and siblings. If you're looking for a sailing blog, this is the wrong place. This is a traveling, hunkering in, eating blog. Sailing is just how we get from place to place when we can't walk.

  1. First of all, Hey! You disappeared for a month and now your posting faster than I can keep up!
    Second. I got a new tab and GM has this thing that you can select an area when connected, and it saves the maps for future reference when not connected. Way cool (or am I the last guy to know this)
    And thoidly, in reference to you previous post, my nic-name in highschool was Piri. A friends Mom still calls me that. So what does it taste like?? Similar/better than tabasco? Do you have that “breakfast of champions” every day? Ouch!

      I’ll have to look for that feature on GM as I find myself rebuilding the map every time I want to use it.

      The Piri-piri sauce is different than Tabasco in that there is no vinegar. Lots of salt and vegetable oil. Very tasty but both it and Tabasco have their place. BTW, just discovered Habanero Tabasco Sauce after mentioning, that very morning, that it would sure be cool if Tabasco made a habanero-based sauce.

      I do have that breakfast of campions or something very much like it every day. Haven’t eaten cold cereal or oatmeal in a long, long time.
