    Way to go guys. Its a lot of fun tracking you, and you are making all VT geographers proud!!!

  5. SD…definitely fun watching the storms ‘train’ Yankton thru Salem and Brookings or further west as they come Hot Springs, thru Ellsworth and Phillip. Bravo, gentleman.

  8. So, looking at where you are when I type this (north of KC), I’m guessing you passed that big roller coaster for the 3rd time in 4 weeks!

    Greetings from Texas. Hello Thomas. Been watching your videos. We are heading west Monday. Hope you find what you are looking for and nothing else.

  13. What percentage of the time is the GPS tracker working? It’s been showing Pierre, SD for a while now.

  14. It can be hit and miss depending on where we are. It relies on the HAM radio network to get the signal out so it all depends on the coverage. South Dakota was very miss. It seemed to only want to work along I-90. Colorado was a bad area too.

  15. Russ – Just wanted you to know we are all very excited for you and your team!! We are also following your travels on the website. Antonia thinks this is really cool and likes to sit in my lap as we check out the website to see what weather you have experienced and your latest location. Take care and we will look forward to hearing about your experiences when you get back!!

  16. Its not so much that it relies on the Amateur Radio network coverage as it relies on other Amateur Radio stations set up to receive position beacons and report them to the internet. Amateur Radio is entirely ad-hoc so there are no towers or coverage to deal with. When you get into sparsely populated areas the chances that theres a station there to beacon your position to the world goes down.

  17. dad i think you are in the right line of storms today.ben

  18. HEY GUYS,
    HOPE YOU GET SOME GREAT PICTURES AND I AM LOOKING AT THE
    RADAR OUT OF SPC AND IT LOOKS LIKE A VERY ACTIVE NIGHT.
    BE CAREFUL AND STAY ALERT.
