Needle in a Haystack

Keeping track of Field Trip can sometimes be a 'Needle in a Haystack.  With limited connectivity, our sometimes rapid pace, we've decided to do a much better job on keeping our readers up to date on our location.  While Facebook has been updated fairly regularly, especially our float plans on longer trips, we are going to be keeping our blog up to date as well.

There are two primary methods we are using beginning this week.

  • SPOT.  We have not used spot to keep track of Field Trip since our long passage from Brazil.  It has gathered dust.  We are now committed to log each and every anchorage when we arrive.  So, you will be able to click on our 'Track Us Here' tab to see exactly where we are.
  • Google Maps.  We are also logging our actual sailing routes and keeping a full history of every single overnight anchorage of Field Trip.  It's been painful, but we've now updated this new map for the entire trip since December 2011.  There are three layers to this map.  One layer for all anchorages, and the other two for our routes in 2012 and 2013.  For 2012 all northbound sailing is in red, and southbound green.  All 2013 routes are in orange.

Finally, we've also updated our high level itinerary for the rest of 2013.  The map is below as well as updated on our 'Our Timeline' tab.


  1. I just used your 'SPOT Track Us Here' tab and it worked well, as did the Google link. Glad to see all is well and thank you again for sharing the trip with us. Have fun!!
