SPOT Connect Locator/ Messenger
While traveling, our location will be transmitted via our SPOT Connect. This is a personal GPS locator that plots our progress on a Google Earth map. It is updated every 10 ~ 20 minutes. The map clearly illustrates our journey from start to finish, when we leave/arrive, and so forth. You can easily follow the journey this way. Plus, if you zoom in you will see a pretty clear rendition of what it looks like where we are. We’re excited to offer this, and feel it will certainly add to your experience.
Additionally, Spot Connect allows us to post to our FaceBook page, and send emails. During the trip we plan to do both.
The Xpeditions Newsletter will be updated regularly, this being managed by a long time friend, Annie DeRiso.
Annie has an adventurous spirit similar to our own. She is a seasoned explorer having been on expeditions in Egypt numerous times! Looking for lost cities and ancient places is nothing new to Annie. She will send you info as we make it available to her. The third tier of contact will be over our Inmarsat satellite phone.
At various points during our adventure we will phone into The Kevin Smith Show to broadcast - from God knows where - how things are going. There is no schedule… how could there be. You will just need to be listening to (or better yet, watching) the show during the last of April through May… and perhaps beyond since we don’t know when we are returning.
