Road Trip 2016 – Day 2, Oh Canada.

Another lovely day on the road, got a little wet, looks like I’ll get more wet tomorrow.  Figured out all of my little techno-issues.  All is good.  Out of Coeur d’Alene, ID at about 8:00am Pacific time, arrived Medicine Hat, AB about 7:30pm Mountain time.  For this evening, I’ll let the pictures tell the story.

Track the Trip  <– This link takes you to my Amateur Radio call sign on aprs.fi.  I’m traveling with an APRS enabled handheld radio which periodically transmits my GPS location, speed and heading.  Standard disclaimer – the system relies on a network of club and privately owned digital Amateur Radio stations.  The overall success of the tracking is dependent on a whole list of factors, including the fact that these stations don’t exist everywhere I’ll be riding and it’s all done on VHF radio frequencies.  When it works it works, when it doesn’t it doesn’t.
