If you're interested in getting a bird's eye view of our route, try this. Posterous may make the attachment work by itself, but if not, make sure you have downloaded Google Earth (not Google Maps) onto your computer. Then click on the link Janice and Tom provided below (Thanks J&T; Laura sent us one like this back in June, but no-one seems to have accessed it). Once Google Earth loads using this link, look down the list on the left hand side of the screen and you'll see the places we are going to visit and, below those, scroll down to the daily routes we will be following. Click on the route you'd like to see and then click on the nearby small icon with three connected squares. That will get you started. You can stop along the way and check out actual pictures taken from various spots, and you can change your altitude by moving the cursor to the Google Earth screen and manipulating the "+" and "-" view slide on the right hand side.
Excellent entertainment, and instructive too. :-)

John, Tom did this google earth thing with "pins" for each one of your stops etc. You get to zoom in/out and see the actual scenery etc. pretty cool. I think people might enjoy this on the blog. Thanks again for a great dinner/evening!!!

This is not like any map you have ever seen. This is a 3D model of the real world, based on real satellite images combined with maps, guides to restaurants, hotels, entertainment, businesses and more. You can zoom from space to street level instantly and then pan or jump from place to place, city to city, even country to country. Get Google Earth. Put the world in perspective.
