Alright, here we go

Just got off the phone with the pilot, and the sea is lovely and calm this morning, so here we go. I should be getting in the water about 11:30 a.m. my time (5:30 a.m. CDT).

Remember, you can follow my progress by going here, and then clicking on the "satellite tracker - Anastasia" link. And, if my phone works as we hope, Henry will send some Twitter updates while I'm out there.

Thanks for all your support and good wishes everyone!

The GPS tracker just went live about five minutes! Looks like I need to get some popcorn so I can "watch" the swim...

Congrats to Mike! (And Henry!) We enjoyed watching the GPS marker slowly creep across the Channel!! I talked with Karla about doing a crossing in 2011...
