Happy Birthday to my niece Chelsea. If you are a long time Jer Zone reader you might remember her visit six months ago (her half birthday, as she pointed out) with excursions to New York City and The White Mountains. I thought I'd attempt to collect birthday greetings from around the world for her. Presuming that there are people from around the world visiting this weblog. ":^)
Do me a favor, leave a comment with where you live. Thanks!
As of 8am the next day the "card" travelled over 42,000 miles. The first map shows the chain of signature locations here in the USA. A little later in the day Brett checked in from Australia and Glenn from Hong Kong, greatly increasing our world coverage as shown in the bottom map. Thanks to everyone who joined in.
BTW, you can make your own maps like this by coming up with nearby airport codes and plugging them into the Great Circle Mapper (which also takes lat/lon coords).
I'll start this off:
Lebanon, NH, USA
Hey, where'd you go??
Daisy Hill Puppy Farm, NH, USA
