I decided to follow the masses and join Twitter. It hit me while flipping through the pages of the latest Backpacker Magazine and reading an ad for the Spot Communicator. I realized that not only does the Communicator let you send friends and family position and status updates via email but it also lets you update social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.
I don’t think I’m ready to spend $99/year for a Spot subscription with as little usage as the device would get. However, I’m fairly confident based on coverage maps that I’ll have fairly decent cell service which should allow me to tweet from the trail. 😛
I’m not sure how well this will work out but we’ll give it the ol’ college try. Who knows? Maybe it’ll be just the ticket for helping me stay connected while I’m getting dirt under my boots.
