Anyone coming in on the Poseidon Leader?

Looks like it's currently a day off the US East Coast. I'm in Colorado and expected it to port at Texas in the Gulf, but it turns out it's going through the Panama Canal and around to California. This seems a bit...out of the way. I'm scheduled to take Delivery the very end of Nov or Beginning of December.

I'm pretty sure my 335i convertible is on that ship...I'd hoped it was on the Topeka but my dealer said it's scheduled to be on Port Hueneme on 11/21, which apparently is when the Poseidon is scheduled to arrive. Dangit. I am SO excited to get my car...it's taking forever. It must have sat for at least 2 weeks waiting for ship.

You'll likely get yours before mine. Mine is coming in through Cali, but has to get to Colorado. 3 more weeks!

It dropped out of range again. Ugh. I was hoping that my car was on the Topeka...no such luck. Dang. We'll be lucky to get our cars by Christmas...depending on how long it takes to get through customs and the VPC.

As it approaches Panama, I figured I'd post this neat webcam site. Not sure any of us will catch it, but take a screenshot if possible!

From an Apple website:

"you can take a screen shot of your entire screen by holding down the Command and Shift keys and pressing a 3"


Those kooky Macs.

Thanks guys! Hopefully we can see it....I keep second (and third) guessing what I ordered. Hopefully I'm still in love with it like I was when I ordered it. I am wishing that I ordered the sport package...oh well. Beggars can't be choosers. Just hurry and get here already...with no scratches!

Awesome find on the schedule of Hueneme. AIS just updated showing the Poseidon Leader moored just off Cristobal, Panama awaiting her turn to pass through the locks. She's scheduled for 0400 so I doubt ill catch a pic of her passing through. But by tomorrow she should be in the Pacific.

Just ask your CA. He can email you everything about your cars build and transport.

Unfortunately, you can't track your cargo on NYK Line (which is the Poseidon's company line). But your CA will know for sure if your precious cargo is on the PL or some other ship. If it's with WW, you should be able to track with your VIN...but I've read that they can be weeks behind in updating. Sigh....

We're a WEEK away from being on California land.

Holy shitballs Batman! I just happened to check out the map, saw the locks it was approaching and pulled up the webcam and I can see it!

http://www.pancanal.com/eng/photo/camera-java.html

It's approaching the Miraflores Locks.

I'll try to get a screenshot.
