    The inReach is a GPS tracker, like the SPOT tracker, using the Iridium satellite network. You use it to send messages with your position via satellite. It, like the SPOT, also has an SOS mode where they automatically link up with local emergency services to come looking for you.

    It is a bit more expensive than the SPOT, but allows for two-way satellite SMS messages. The model I got interfaces with an Android phone and a mapping app from DeLorme for the composition and sending of two-way messages. You do not have to be connected to the phone to send pre-programmed messages or 911 messages (which is what the SPOT does).

    You do not have to have cell service to send and receive messages--like in the middle of many National Parks and Forests, not to mention the Maine woods.

    Details at the DeLorme site. It normally goes for $249, not including the service subscription.

    Yup, Estey Tavern in Middleton at the intersection of Route 62 and 114. I originally thought it was "Essex Tavern" but there's no such place. It's a couple of miles from my office. Took a pic in case no one grabbed it but now the tag moves on.....

    Im more about the ride and less about the google...I always try and make it pretty easy to find. I just wish I looked at the map of the un tagged towns before I left Middleton...I rode thru two towns not tagged yet!!

    Is this a clue or a typo?

    My google-fu is usually pretty strong, but I am having trouble with this one. :huh

    Yes I know. But there is also a chance that he simply meant to say that it's in an untagged town. I am just making sure that "T town" wasn't a typo and sending us all chasing after a false lead.

    I was wondering what that was! I first checked out your tag using tapatalk on my iphone and clicked on the picture to enlarge it, but got that "redirect."
