Our updates are made possible using a DeLorme PN-60W GPS with SPOT Communicator.  While in the backcountry the PN-60W lets us send short updates to Twitter, Facebook and other social networks, as well as txt messages. It’s a truly amazing piece of technology.

In addition to our text updates you can also follow us on a map.

If Twitter is your thing you can find our updates on our @LostCoastBikers page.  Keep in mind that starting August 9th our Twitter account is one-way. We can post tweets but won’t be able to receive any @LostCoastBikers replies. Definitely feel free to respond however and we’ll be sure to catch up when we return!

And one more note: If our updates happen to stop it does NOT mean we’re in danger.  It could be that we ran out of batteries, broke our GPS or a variety of other factors. So there’s no need to panic  if our updates stop.
