Because of other peoples' lives, you can learn about things that you would otherwise have no reason to know. The week of July 4th I was in New Orleans for the christening of the Neal J. Seago. I went looking for pictures to see if they were posted yet. While searching for them, I ran across a live map that shows current ship positions.
You can look up the Neal J. Seago at any time and see exactly where she is. Click here to see the boat's record. If you click the link Current Vessel's Track, you go to a map with a pin for the exact location of the boat. As of this posting, she's in the Houston area and I would assume working.
