Look, it's a shiny new map! And even with two more US states I've visited:
I boarded the flight to Nürnberg, sat down in my seat, and fell asleep even before take off, only to wake up again during landing. So I guess it was a smooth flight. Washing machine is running, there's tea in the cup, I'm home.
While browsing through the documentation of tangoGPS I found the the relief map at maps-for-free.com. The map is free (licenced under the GNU FDL) and generated from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) data:
I've finally visualized the GPS recording of the RV Trip with my parents last Winter. Unfortunately, LJ does not allow me to embed the interactive map, thus you have to click on this static one to play with it:
At last, I'm done with editing my vaction photos. A four week trip through California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah. 2643 pictures. After sorting and editing, 495 pictures in the large collection. And still 129 photos in the "best of" collection, which can be viewed at my online gallery.
On the final day on the road we went to a mall North of Sacramento and finally found some jeans in the right sizes at Sears. However, we weren't able to get out of the parking space with the RV and had to wait two hours for the owner of the car in the spot left from us.
Sacramento, a city (actually, two cities) along the Sacramento and American river, is the capital of the state of California.
