GPS Tracking - Group Testing Pinnacles National Park
Weekend of March 20-22, 2015 we took a group of scouts and hiked the
trails at Pinnacles National Park. Our campsite provided a clear
view of the ridge above where three Condors would fly in to roost for
the night and in the morning stretch their wings and fly off for their
day. We broke into two groups on the hikes later in the day with
the using two GPS SPOT trackers activated. They are setup in one group
account with tracking on one map and messages configured each separately
but results in the one map setup.
