Track a cross country trip live via GPS

A good friend of mine is on sabatical from work to ride across the US - for the second time. You can read all about his trip here http://www.viciouscircle.us But the really cool thing is that he is carrying a Motorola cell phone with service from http://www.ulocate.com that allows you to see where he is in real time. Go to http://www.ulocate.com and enter
username: biketrip
password: usa
Click on select on the left side, and you can enter a range of dates to see where he has been. Here is the trip so far

Text message from Scotland

I'm the guy who carried the GPS cell phone. You have no idea
how amazed I was to find a text message from Scotland on the
phone one morning...
