Once again, we are teaming up with Backpacker's Get Out More Tour! Get Out More is a mobile tour that encourages outdoor activity and offers outdoor enthusiasts, like our SPOT customers, free workshops about the latest outdoor gear. The tour will bring the pages of Backpacker Magazine to life. Audiences can see the latest in outdoor gear and apparel in person and get a chance to win outdoor prizes.

Dale, a retired community college administrator and instructor, is an avid hiker, backpacker and cyclist. At the age of 67, he now spends most of his free time hiking through the backcountry of Oregon and California alone and with fellow backpackers.
Like many hikers, Dale often worried about connectivity during his travels. This is why SPOT peaked his interest when reading one of his favorite magazines. Soon after, Dale visited REI to purchase his first SPOT device. In celebration of Memorial Day, Dale and 7 other hikers ranging from ages 51 to 74 decided to take a five day trip to Mattole Beach Campground near Petrolia, California. This time, he made sure to add his new SPOT Gen 3™ as a "must bring" item.
