Amelia plans on starting her trip in Oakland today with stops in Burbank, Tucson, Austin and New Orleans before ending in Miami.  The young pilot hasn't said whether she'll try to complete Earhart's flight around the world.  That flight ended with the original Earhart's disappearance over the pacific ocean.  The new Earhart's adventure can be followed on her blog, go here.
