Google finds nothing about a VDC in Baltimore... :iono:

Emden is scheduled to arrive in Charleston prior to Baltimore. Maybe all bimmers are off loaded there? :iono:

There may more than just BMW's on the EMDEN and that's why it's going to Baltimore perhaps.

Go Maersk Wind!

We'll have the crew toss popcorn off the back as a breadcrumb trail for the Emden. :biggrin:

I'm so glad for 1 addicts. Never knew you could track ships. Now I am finding myself tracking my tile containers that come from Italy/Spain and China! My baby is on the Maersk Wind. Looks like a few more days!

Not financing though. So that doesn't make a difference to me.

W00t! Now wer're off the coast of Nova Scotia, steaming south down the coast. We should be going by Cape Cod tonight.




We're still on track for docking tomorrow!!

That means we can again begin bothering the 800 number automatic system to find out our status.
