Special Places

Farthest north, south, etc. (on the ground):

Farthest from "home" (in this case, it's Norman, Oklahoma, USA) I've ever been: (1.2522° N, 103.8182° E, in Singapore on 2016-12-01). Distance: 15,408 km, or about 77% of the way to the opposite side of the Earth. This is the same location as the farthest south point. (Based on GPS track.)

Family Vacations of Yesteryear

(Under construction)

NOTE: Because of changes with Google Maps, these maps are currently not displayable there. The maps are now displayed on OpenStreetMaps maps, but do not show the correct colors (see next paragraph), and the waypoints do not show labels.

[Does not currently work] The color scheme is such that red lines are outbound, and green lines are returning home (similar to the standard velocity color scheme for WSR-88D weather radars). The lines alternate light/dark each day.
