SPOT hits the mark!

Well, if you checked out the track for our T-day drive, you know the SPOT tracker worked perfectly. After the trial run to/from work, I decided to sign-up for the Tracking service so I could use that mode. Turned out to be nice not to have to worry about sending a signal. It would be GREAT if you could change the send rate. Right now it sends ever 10 minutes without the ability to modify that default. One thing I forget to do was turn off the tracker once we got to our destination... yeah, a bunch of flags at one spot is a bit of a give away, isn't it?!

Now I'm seriously on the hunt for a second GPS (getting worried that the old trusted Garmin Streetpilot 2610 might be on its last legs) and auxiliary fuel set-up. There's a LOT to do and get dialed in before next August.
