When excessive excitement kicks in

So I've been reading about big boat journeys a few centuries, listened to a lot of seafaring songs, asked around about remedies against sea-sickness, bored everyone I know with my stories of how excited I am about going on a cargo ship across the Atlantic.

And then I took it one step further. I started looking at the Atlantic on Google Earth. And discovered some cool features, like maps of shipwrecks, the seabed, and vessel tracking.

Guess what? I found our boat. It's called the CMA CGM Fort St. Louis.

And right now, it's in Guadeloupe.

I think this must be my ticket to the Geek Awards...
