New toys....Go Pro, Spot Connect, Strava,...

Shopping for a few "necessary items" for the Ride is well underway.


                         My campaign is now CLOSED>  Many thanks to all who have contributed...

Items I'm currently endeavouring to purchase include
                                                                                     Go Pro Hero 3 action cam

I'm after a decent action cam that can be easily attached to the RV, is weather proof, that can take decent video and doesn't suffer too much from road vibrations.  This should be a good choice.

                                                                                    Spot Connect Satellite Communicator.

Along with the relevant iPhone App, this will allow me to communicate with the outside world with SMS, email, Facebook and Twitter.
It allows "real time" tracking for those following me online.
It also has an SOS function, should the worst happen. Search and Rescue is only a button press away..... a good investment..Just in Case.

And then there's this App called Strava.... I've heard and read the blurb,so thought I'd give it a go........maybe it will help with my training.
It's only a matter of getting "miles in the legs" anyway, I'm not out to break any records, or rack up PB's, but it'll give me a record of my rides.
