For those new to this thread, here's a repost of some key links so you can follow along:

Reposting from the general ASDS thread:

Pacific Warrior tracking via vesselfinder
NRC Quest tracking via vesselfinder

Pacific Warrior is the tug that would be towing ASDS.
NRC Quest doesn't tow an ASDS; it's a logistics support vessel.

Where the ASDS is going:

Google Maps:
2900 Miner Street, San Pedro, CA

(click into Street View :) )

They'd be in bed, but we're running out of SpaceX media folk. Another one's left - Phil Larson (got a great job offer elsewhere).

May have read over it, but where would they take cores from here? HQ first or elsewhere?

Dawn is officially at 6:31am, so the lighting is about to get a lot better.

Bravo, looks as great on the west coast as it does on the east. 

Looking forward to reflights and re-recovery.

some of these pictures with the hanging lines from the crane next to it show a small lean on the stage; not much at all, but a bit.

Reddit is saying one of the crush cores was compacted during the landing. The lines definitely show a slight tilt.
There was quite a swell during the landing so we probably shouldn't be surprised.
