People - WMACi '17

About 3 hrs into my 13 hr flight on Delta wifi.  Taking a more southerly route. Presently leaving
Japan airspace and moving toward the Kamchatka peninsula of Russia.  We'll fly over the Alloutian Is, across the Bering straight and across northern Alaska and the Yukon.

Well, updating that from my phone was too much for the limited device, so now... back in TN.

Some people photos from WMACi:
