My SPOT has gone on tour in the US without me :(

My father has borrowed my SPOT and on gone on tour in the US from New Zealand, taking in California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona and Colorado.

He'll be in Yosemite today, but over the next 7 weeks he'll appear in Moab, the Arches National Park, Horseshow Bend, Bodie, Mesa Verde and the Cliff City and all the major photo opportunity places in those states as he's a keen amateur photographer.

He's travelling by campervan unfortunately but if you see a early 60's guy with a close cropped beard and a paunch, carrying a camera while possibly using a stick but most obviously with a funny accent his name is Bruce, give him a shout out. It's his first really big trip and he'd get a buzz out of the community crossing such distances.

Here's the Spot tracker:

The mods didn't like this in RR's so I'll see if it's allowed here.

Yep, he's just arriving at Mono Lake now. I don't actually have a full itenirary of where he will be day to day. while he know what places he wants to visit his schedule has about 10 days spare so he can stop at places longer if he wants.

It's funny being able to watch someone in real time halfway across the world, the future is here.

Looks like he's on the move again.

He's heading along I 50 / 6 past the north side of the Great Basin National park at the moment.

He's now in Mesa Verde and loving everything, and giving me some serious itches to explore that area by motorcycle, he's posting some fantastic photo's.

I run an adventure riding site/forum here in New Zealand and have business cards with my site url on them to give out to riders I meet out on the trails or leave on bikes I see parked around town. Dad took some with him and when he was in Moab a few days gave out a couple to riders he saw in carparks.
One of the riders apparently commented he had been to the site as a friend of his had recommended it, I was pretty stoked about that.
