Spotting Twitter

If you've been following our Twitter updates today (and yes, Kayak Yak is now on Twitter, like I needed something else to keep me locked down in front of my computer), you'll know that I've spent the afternoon trying to get my SPOT to work. After some early frustration, success! The test "OK" check came through.

SPOT Check OK.

Tomorrow we'll give it a try out in the real world.
(And if you're desperate to live vicariously through our SPOT checks, I've set up a blog just for you: KayakYakSpot, where we'll archive our SPOT checks in real time.)


  1. It's a nice "piece of kit", esp for the folks back home. If interested, I did a review on June 7 blog entry following circuit around Saltspring.


  2. Thanks D, nice review, and nice blog too! (Everyone check it out -- )
    My SPOT worked great today, so apart from my initial teething pains yesterday, it's been smooth sailing so far.
