Ok, I've got a proposed Eel route here. It's lacking in some details, but you get the general idea. The only thing I need now is a cool logo. One thing about it of note is that if you want to bailout, you easily can. Also, it's not starting in Middletown. It's probably easiest just to start from my house (not presently pictured on the route).
This car was spotted on the proposed eel route. It definitely portends good things.
