SPOT Gen3 by SPOT LLC: SPOT was my first on river sponsor. The support SPOT staff gave me was greatly appreciated. I am now proudly a Product Ambassador for SPOT and the device was with me and working every inch of the Mississippi River, from it’s source at Lake Itasca, Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico. Family, friends and followers were able to see my track, pinging my precise location every every 10 minutes. The Source to Sea expedition would not have been as successful without SPOT. Your sponsorship was appreciated. Many loyal followers have told me stories. They would say things like: My (son or Daughter) would not go to bed at night until they choked the SPOT link to see where on the Mississippi River you were camping for the evening (or words to that effect).
Thank you SPOT for being my faithful companion while paddling the big rivers, and offering to be there for me when I attempt to hike the Appalachian Trail next year in 2017. I will make an attempt to hike the entire Appalachian Trail from Springer Mountain, GA to Mt. Katahdin State Park in Maine. If I can pull it off, that age record will be mine as well. The key is, hike all 2200 miles in one season.
If any of you are considering a tracking device for your next adventure — make it SPOT. www.FindMeSPOT.com
