Passages and Pics

What do you guys think about starting a thread dedicated to "popular" passages using GPS tracks and pics?

I always see people asking about "what's the best route...." between various points (e.g. - Houston to Miami, Charleston to Bermuda, Topeka to Moose Jaw) and I figure there are people out there that have done the trip, have the GPS tracks that shows how they did it, and have a great story and pics to go along with it. What was the weather like, what did you have to watch out for, etc.?

For example, I personally would find it useful seeing the routes through the rigs in the Gulf and across to Florida, pics of what those rigs look like at night, anchorages that might be along the way, and that kind of thing.

I would love to see CD's track of his recent trip across (to go with his great pics and story). And I'm sure many others would like to see other passages from people like Eryka, Zanshin, Omatako, St. Anna, DylanWinter, etc. as they sail in places all over the world.

If people are interested, we could set up a Google Maps account for SN and I could put up instructions on how to upload a GPX file from your GPS.

What do you think? Let's have some fun with GPS!
