Ship stopped moving...



I'm sure I'm being unduly anxious, but I've been tracking the Aida which is carrying my baby, since it left Southhampton. It has faithfully logged its position every 6 hours as it travelled around Spain into the mediterranian, through the Suez, Red Sea and into the Indian Ocean.

Then nothing since 0600 14/5.

Has it sunk?

Yeah it a real cool site. When you have Aida on the screen, zoom out and you can see its journey since leaving the UK. Snazzy.

I saw a news item about a car carrying ship hitting a whale and the crew being evacuated, but I didn't even think about you guys!

Got ya. Sorry, couldn't resist. I'm sure your babies are all okay and it's just a technical glitch.

Yes, I'm hooked too. Everyday I log on to watch the good ship Aida slowly making its way to oz, but it's now stuck south of India in the middle of the ocean.

Engine trouble? Sank? Mutiny? Pirates? The mind races.....

How addicted is that, that is so good, you are into the whole process of the car, I bet you that if we where in Germany we would have already gone to the plant to see if we can get a glimpse of the car whilst its being built.

Yup, 4x photo's from webcams as the car was being assembled. Was part of the package for the XR6 at the time, didn't have to pay extra.

Was as chuffed as muck when I got 'em! :thumbup:

41 year old addict here. This is reminiscent of waiting for the birth of my first child. I think we're all a bit ill....
