Five Cent Tour

Today was my I-hope-I-can-fit-everything-in-my-car trial run. Needless to say, it was quite a success. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Spot Check


This lil’ gadget came in the mail yesterday and it just may save my life.

Introducing the Spot Gen3 – a nifty satellite GPS messenger that, with the push of a button, can summon a helicopter for a cliff-side rescue or simply let my mom know that “I’m okay”.

When I first decided to embark on this journey, I realized one of the downfalls of travelling alone is the whole safety aspect. Taking an adventurous road trip will be so much more fun when I don’t have to worry about sitting at the bottom of a gully with a broken femur or waiting in Death Valley for some Good Samaritan to swing by and realize I’m out of gas.


I like to think of it as being off the grid on my terms as I push the boundaries of cellular reception.

Those of you with T Mobile might just consider investing in one of these ingenious tools.
