    I don’t mind making a contribution to the spot locator fund. Looking forward to the ride.

    So it looks like both baton and Spot will be headed my way this coming week. Once they arrive, I’ll be getting the service set up for the Spot, as well as getting the final details of the first leg ironed out.

    Update: This arrived today! Will spend some time this weekend setting it up and testing. Then will set a firm date to get this going. We are starting a little later due to IRL stuff and weather, but my hope is to get it on the road within the next 2-3 weeks.

    Yep. I'm going to get it set up this weekend with a link in the OP as well as a basic SPOT tutorial for folks who have never used one before. That way we can track the baton as it moves.

    My local PO makes it their mission to ruin delivery expectations. Thank you again for contributing the SPOT to the cause. Hopefully the O2O crew can keep it alive!

    Looking forward to this. Just an FYI, I’m headed to Daytona for the day on the 14th of March. I could do a handoff to someone else there or anywhere along the way.
