About Our Maps
We have been mapping our cruising trips for many years. Back in 2007-2012 we used Google Maps and we would physically, by hand, and with Internet access, place a pin down at every anchorage or every dock. We even added photos to these Google Map pins. This was very time-consuming. Then in 2012 we started using a SPOT transmitter and we would press the button at each key point of a voyage and this would place the map pin automatically. Then we discovered that SPOT deletes your map pins after 30 days, this was not a viable solution if we wanted to build our map archive. Enter SPOTWALLA.com, this person solved that. In 2013 we connected our Spot account over to our Spotwalla account and now the map pins are saved forever, thanks to Jason! This is a great solution. In 2016 we moved to the In-Reach by Delorme/Garmin and now we have the device set to place a map pin down whenever the boat is moving. This device will also allow us to send text messages to the map pins as well as to Facebook, Twitter and our gmail contacts. This is a fantastic upgrade and we look forward to using this to map our travels. Enjoy our maps.

Starting in Rock Hall, MD, destination Grenada
this map shows us starting in Puerto Rico where we picked up our hurricane damaged boat. We then shipped her from St. Thomas to Stuart Florida where we spent the winter on repairs with Mack Sails. Then we did a shake down sail to the Berrys and then an ocean run to HOME. Too late to return to the Caribbean Sea.

Our GOOGLE MAPS of our travels.
In the earlier days, I would create my own travel maps and place a Google map pin down along with a photo for that place. This was all done via a cell phone connection while on anchor. I placed a pin at the end of EVERY DAY of travel.
