Jorgen and I will be carrying a SPOT II GPS Satellite Messenger on our Arctic Circle ski tour from Alta to Kautokeino. Hopefully, from Tuesday afternoon, you will be able to follow our progress in real time by clicking here and watching our trail of electronic 'breadcrumbs' on our shared page. I have also integrated the SPOT II's 'OK/Check-in' function into my Twitter stream.
Some might feel that this electronic tracking reduces the feeling of 'getting away from it all' or that we may become complacent, relying on technology instead of skills to get ourselves out of trouble. Friends, family and the curious might disagree. Discuss.
