Home from Maui

Got home yesterday.

I should have posted this link earlier for those who might want to track me down.

Vic Maui 2012 Return - Powered by Yellowbrick Tracking.

We had a Yellow Brick transponder abroad Turicum which tracked us on the way back. That provided some reassurance to the folks back home.

The web site allows you to select individual vessels, zoom in, animate, etc..

On August 7 at 39N 150W, there is a course deviation as we met a container ship to conduct a medical evacuation of a crew member. I have a lot of empathy for folks like Doug Sabbag. Docking next to a 900 foot ship is scary.

As I get photos and videos from crew members I will post them.
