Hello Stephen, my apologies, but I totally forgot about this thread and I think I owe you an email with the plugin name that we use for our blog map.
Anyway, today marks 4 months since arriving back home. We were both contacted by our former employer somewhere cycling through the middle of Texas about the possibility of returning to work once we got home. Bam! We both landed jobs with the same organization we left from, Petra got her same position, I took another position but under the same boss. Lesson here... do not ever burn any bridges and keep in touch with your former co-workers. :-) So back to work now for just over 3 months and it is beginning to feel like we never left, but the desire to get back on the bikes grows more everyday.
Our blog is still behind sadly, but we are working on it. Added several entries for Vietnam and are almost done there, but we have all of the Southwest from San Diego, CA to Tarpon Springs, FL to write about.
Stephen if you're still interested the plugin is - Google Maps Travel Route, by traveller11

Here is a write we posted last week that some might find interesting - http://pedalpowertouring.com/general/how-we-saved-enough-money-to-travel/
How are your plans coming along?
