GLMC Titanic Grand Tour

The Glacial Lakes Motorcycle Club is sponsoring a new Grand Tour for 2010, the Titanic Grand Tour. In a nutshell, visit and photograph city limits signs around the USA of cities that relate to the Titanic. The Titanic weighed a 'ton', and was taken out by an Ice'burg' -- city names than end in ton, burg, burgh, berg, or bergh all count. I've founde 1,879 places in the US.

I've collected some data for any one to use, based on US Census Place Names from 2000. Each place name is postpended with 'City', 'Town', 'Village' or 'CDP'. This does not guarantee that the place will exist - some may not be real towns, some may have dried up and blown away. Use your best judgement when visiting these towns.

External Data -- this info was created from GPS Visualizer. Cut-n-paste your own list of cities into their site to create your own Google Map. Route files can be created using GebWeb.net's Travelling Salesman Problem Solver - enter up to 20 locations (lat, lon).

If you're into Javascript coding, you can use the Google Maps API to pull up your own custom route; no idea how many locations it supports.

My Progress So Far

Found the site; sent in my registration. I'll start riding and shooting photos on 15-APR-10. Stay tuned for updates...
