I got an email notification from my brother and dad from the spot that they are carrying with them. This cool GPS type device allows you to send out a ‘we are ok’ message to family and friends or a ‘we are in deep crap’ message to a central service that they dispatches local help. This thing is great and the coordinates it gave for their location are:

GPS location Date/Time:04/24/2010 15:40:12 GMT

Throwing that up on google maps, you get this:

[googlemaps http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=104267311669100252934.000484fdba4a1a267ff71&ll=37.57268,-111.25769&spn=0,0&t=h&output=embed&w=425&h=350]

They were planning on going canyoneering, so I can only imagine that the canyon in the map is where they went. I woke up this morning thinking about what they were up to today and if they made it out alright. We’ll see where the spot reports their location next…
