Jesse and Bruce Walk America PDF Imprimir Correo electrónico
Lunes 19 de Enero de 2009 16:56

It's like Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure! But wait, this one is Jesse and Bruce. We thought it sounded like an epic mission: Jesse and Bruce Walk America to raise money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Actually, Bruce was unable to partake in the event so Jesse Simmons is solo and just got started on January 6. The route should take 5 months and cover roughly 3,800 miles. Jesse will be filming the entire trip for an upcoming documentary. So everyone can see the progress, Jesse has posted a SPOT Shared page. Jesse plans to hit the “check-in” button a couple times a day. See more or donate to this great cause at http://jesseandbrucewalkamerica.com/

Gifts for Exercisers and Outdoor Enthusiasts

By Roy Wallack

Spot Satellite Personal Tracker

Safety first. This device, using GPS and Spot's network, ensures that people can find you -- or at least find where you were just before you dropped into a hole. It tracks you in real time via Google Maps, so your loved ones can "watch" you, and it can send three types of messages: a regular "I'm OK" to a predesignated e-mail address, an "I need assistance" alert to the same, and has a 911 "help" button that goes to the Coast Guard or a search-and-rescue or other group. It retains your route history, posting your location on a website every 10 minutes. The device floats, handles temperatures down to 40 degrees and works in North America, Europe and Australia, and some of South America, Africa and Asia.

-Wallack is an Irvine-based health and fitness writer.

Venturing Beyond a Compass and Map

By Ian Austen 

SPOT Satellite Messenger

Unlike conventional GPS devices, the Spot Satellite Messenger (also known as Personal Tracker; $170, findmespot.com) does not give directions. Instead, it tracks its user’s location and sends family and friends automated text or e-mail updates. If necessary, the device can alert up to 10 people that a user needs nonemergency assistance; another feature acts as a global 911 service for true emergencies. The Spot requires an annual subscription of $100 to $158, depending on services.
