If you’ve been eyeing a SPOT Gen 3 satellite tracker, they’re currently on sale at 50% off. Not too shabby! Maybe this is the push you’ve been waiting for 🙂
I have no affiliation, just passing along the info. I’ve been happy with mine and hope you would be too.
On Friday before I set off for a weekend away on the bike, I posted a picture of my SPOT tracker on Instagram. (Because that’s what the kids are doing these days.)
Fellow blogger and friend Brent (Sojourn Chronicles) asked:
“…You have some travel plans?”
It dawned on me that I have ALL of the travel plans. ALL OF ‘EM. I want to go everywhere (man).
Now how do I make that happen?
Well, I finally broke down and ordered a Spot Gen 3 Tracker. I hope that I never, ever need it and it becomes a $150 insurance policy.
I’d been waffling on the whole topic – feeling like I never go anywhere remote enough to warrant having one. But as history shows, I could fling myself down in to a ravine or get into trouble a few hundred miles from home just as easily as some highfalutin globe trotter.
The more I thought about it, the more I realized that just in the last 6 months I have been quite a few places that had no cell service. So,… what the hell? At the very least my mom can watch my progress on a road trip. (No matter how old you are you’re always Mama’s baby.)
They are offering a $50 rebate on the Spot Gen 3 right now if you’re on the fence. Perhaps that will sway you a bit.
Have you or anyone you know benefitted directly from using a Spot?
