Don’t miss the first kayak descent of the Lower Congo Rapids, the highest volume rapids in the world at 1.25 million cubic feet per second. SPOT Ambassador Trip Jennings will appear on the National Geographic Channel show Explorer: "Monster Fish of the Congo”, which tells the tale of this epic adventure to explore the Congo River, its people and its species.

We're just glad that Jason McNeil, Trophy Truck #50 driver in the Baja 1000 Race is ok! That's an amazing feat, considering looking at how his SPOT unit fared out after a truck fire got a hold of it. McNeil even finished 11th in the Trophy Truck Class after his truck burned! We received the unit at the office, fired it up and it seems to be working ok!
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/
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.
