It is there, just click on Satellite from a PC too. The map isn't displaying any details on my end.
I sent second one and finalized float plan.
I will not activate Tracking until Saturday. I will send another OK once at Flamingo this afternoon.
I will launch Saturday between 3-7AM paddling East through Tin Can Pass, Jimmie Channel, Manatee Pass, then over to the Bay Cove motel in Key LArgo. Then I will paddle up the ICW to Florida Bay Outfitters. Then I will paddle out to camp on North Nest Key saturday night Jan 21st. Sunday I will try to leave early from North Nest Key and inspect Park Key Pass for WaterTribe, then head Northwest to Crocodile Dragover, then back through Dump Keys to Tin Can pass and into Flamingo.
