Track our progress!

We're carrying a satellite personal tracking device, called the SPOT tracker. It was donated by Northwest Arkansas ATM, and we're so happy to have it! It allows anyone to follow our progress across the country in real time.

In order to see where we are, just visit our Shared Tracking Page. Our tracking device sends out a message every 10 minutes to show our current location, and the system logs all of those points for us to go back and review later.

The map will only show 50 check-in points at a given time, so you have to play with the menu options on the left-hand side of the page in order to see the early days of our trip.

Let us know if you have any problems using the tracker! It's been really helpful already: Katy and Martin tracked us all day yesterday, and met us at the bottom of our descent from Washington Pass. They picked up all our gear in their station wagon, and pointed the way home, allowing us to ride those final miles without all the extra gear weight. I have to say, I almost cried when I saw them! After such a challenging couple of days, it was such a welcome sight to see two familiar faces there to cheer us on!
