Some maps with more detail

Wheel full 70px So, Halifax, Nova Scotia, to Key West, Florida.  About 3,600 miles/5,750 kilometers, but that’s because the route I’ve planned hugs the coastline to the greatest extent possible.  It’s actually a couple of hundred miles shorter because of a couple of ferry rides.

Wheel full 70px The POIs on the RwGPS map are notional overnights.  They are 50 miles/80 kilometers apart north and east of New York City and 60 miles/95 kilometers apart south of there.   The reason for that dichotomy is because south of NYC the coast is basically flat as a parking lot. I’ve stuck with my “ride six days a week” plan from before, although that has never been set in stone.  If I depart Halifax this coming Saturday, the 13th, and all goes well I should make it to Key West by or before the 30th of October.

Whee Boy Howdy!

I was at the end of this line over an hour ago

…you might want to delay your travel plans or choose another carrier.  My experience once at the counter to rebook and check my panniers was that Delta’s computer system is still not all the way back up.  Many Delta flights out of this airport this morning were showing as cancelled.  I have now been rescheduled for the fourth time and leave here late this afternoon.  Not complaining, mind you.  Lots of people were inconvenienced far worse than I was.
