Where's Karl? On the Appalachian Trail!
And he's off! Despite rainy Maine weather Karl is off and running on today, day 1. If you follow along on the Where's Karl website you'll be able to see his progress via the SPOT locater and Google Maps.
If you're wondering about the spacing between each tagged location, the SPOT can have somewhat "spotty" coverage when it's brutally stormy like was reported from Maine yesterday.
But the fact that it's tagging shows it's superior to a lot of GPS units that need absolute visual with satellites in order to work.
Sure, Karl is fast but not quite that fast as the distance between some of his location tags is substantial.
I've got to say it's pretty cool to see him on the trail via the SPOT locater tags. I can only hope I don't get sucked in to the point of lowered production. August could be a LONG month.
Tune in to Where's Karl.
