8,826 Miles

I just got a new iPod, which I ordered over the internet; and I want to tell you about the adventure it took in getting to me:

On Sunday, 09 August, I ordered a new iPod classic. On Monday, 10 August, I got an email saying it shipped. I got a FedEx tracking number, so I went and checked out the little guy's progress -- surprised to find my iPod was coming all the way from Shanghai, China! (Probably no one finds this surprising but me.)

Anyway, I followed the progress daily until today when it got delivered (less than 96 hours after ordering) and then made this map (click to enlarge) showing its progress -- including dates, locations and approximate miles it travelled to my house in Phoenix (8,826).
