Scott Maxwell tweeted that Oppy has just passed 11 miles. That would be 17.7km

I love this pace too, but let's not forget the restricted sols.

3 sugestions (sorry no less)
+ add the 11 miles mark
+ add the 18 kms mark next drive (I know you'll do it smile.gif )
+ once it'll come add the 10 kms mark in strait line from Eagle (let me have a look at it since James pointed out the 9 kms mark recently)
Edited: James mesured 9.06 kms from Eagle on Sol 1870, so, we're above 10 kms by now but not much more.

1. Well, I didn't include the 10 mile stone or previous ones so ... smile.gif
2. If this drive adds another 70m to the odometer, yes. wink.gif
3. I like the idea; actually the grid --squares each 100m-- gives almost all is needed to do it. The problem is that the grid origin in my map is the exit from VC, not Eagle, and it should be offset before adding labels (e.g. 5km, 10km) to the grid. Let's see what I can do.

Opportunity has a fair way to go before they are again as near to Endeavour as they were on sol 1927. Once they cross the green line in this image, they'll be closer.

Oh cool, thanks SFJCody! I've been wondering where the "detour" ended.

It's time to go "back to business". smile.gif
Here's a map update after sol 2034, including the 18km mark (Hi climber!) which was crossed in this sol. The grid has been updated too; check my previous entry four posts above for more details.

Farewell Shelter Island, nice knowing you... smile.gif

Can I just thank you for taking the time to make those Google Earth files, Tesh? Don't know about anyone else, but it's adding a whole new dimension to Oppy's Great Trek for me...

I agree completely, Stu. I especially appreciate the attention to the small hops in Google Earth that wouldn't register on the JPG map.

Regarding the JPG map, I do have one request. Now that the grid has been changed, can you post an update of the whole map going back to Victoria? I overlay your daily map snippets on the latest big map every time you post them, but now the grid lines don't coincide anymore. (Am I the only one who does this...?) Thanks, Eduardo, and thanks for all your tireless work in maintaining this thread.
