Saturday, September 23, 2006Bear Tracking
So as you know there is a bear on the way to The Steff for her birthday.
That's him right there. One of the things I've always found interesting was how companies get packages from point A to point B. This bear is travelling by UPS. So they send you an e-mail with a link telling you where the bear has been, and is on their journey.
Here's the latest one:
Tracking results provided by UPS: 09/23/2006 12:33 P.M. EST (USA)
Based on that chart, the bear's trip has gone something like this...So you're probably wondering why it matters to me. Well it isn't that it really matters to me... but if I was driving from the starting point at the Vermont Teddy Bear Headquarters to New York then my route would look more like this...
See the difference??? I just find it interesting that this bear has travelled more miles in less than 24 hours, with adverse weather conditions to boot, than if I had just picked him up in Vermont myself.
I know... it's stupid... but it intrigues me.
