Where’s Michael 2017?

2017 is a year to visit family and friends, traveling across the country on a 1999 Ducati ST4 motorcycle.  I’ll occasionally post blog entries and pictures to this site.

+ Quick weekend trip back by airline to help transport a cockatiel and check in on the boat. Then back to pick up the bike in Philadelphia and head for Texas.

* Travel by Bonanza A36TC to attend EAA Airventure Oshkosh with the Faust brothers.  For tracking during the flights, see Rich Faust’s FlightAware page.

# A nine day tour with Tandy of the major capitals of the ancient Maya civilization, led by the Maya Exploration Center.  I’m still working on the assigned pre-reading.

While on the bike, I’ll be carrying a SPOT GPS tracking device which will update the tracking page below every 10 minutes or so.  If the tracker doesn’t move, don’t panic–it doesn’t mean I’m broken down.  I’m in a tunnel, the batteries are dead, the Russians hacked the satellite, or I probably just forgot to press the “track” button after the last pit stop.

The page only stores the last seven days of tracks and only shows the last 50 points at once.  You have to page back to see earlier track points.  You can also load the tracking page in its own window.
