Ryan, Megan, and Alex's Michigan Itinerary
Saturday, April 27, 2013 - Monday, April 29, 2013
Howdy! Here we go again - back to the motor city! Last year, we came here to visit The Henry Ford museum, but we ran out of time before we could use our tickets for Greenfield Village. Fortunately, they are good for a year, and Southwest was having a sale to one of their newest cities - Flint. Put the two and two together, and we booked a trip to Michigan for the weekend! It wasn't until a few hours before our flight that we decided when we would come home - we actually had 2 flights booked. Given that we are arriving so late on Saturday, and it'll be rainy on Sunday, we decided to go through Monday evening. So, here we go!
All times are local to the particular city. This trip will take place entirely in the Eastern Time Zone.

You know the drill. If we have signal and feel like setting up the webcam, the pictures above will start changing.

Where you at?? We are never 100% on time to our destinations, so we've taken all the guesswork out of figuring out where we are by broadcasting our GPS location. You'll need to manually refresh this page to see our latest movements, but so long as we get cell phone signal, you'll be able to see where we are!
Megan's Location... Ryan's Location...
And if that's not good enough, we've still got our guesstimated route highlighted below...
Just as before, these are some links where you might be able to track our flight. With all of these sites, be sure to hit refresh (F5) and click 'Retry' as applicable to view the latest information.
