The 2011 Get Out More Tour

Spot LLC, a leader in satellite messaging and emergency notification technology, has partnered with Backpacker Magazine for the 11th annual Get Out More Tour, a national event designed to inspire others to live healthy, active lifestyles outside. For the third consecutive year, integrated SPOT satellite technology allows retailers, sponsors and fans to follow the tour online from town to town. The tour kicks-off on April 7th in Raleigh, North Carolina and runs through December 8, 2011.

The Get Out More Tour, led by outdoor experts Sheri and Randy Propster, will make over 60 stops at outdoor specialty retailers and festivals across the country. At each stop the Get Out More road team hosts an interactive 75 minute seminar where the audience can check out the latest outdoor products like SPOT Connect, a new device that enables some of today’s leading smartphones to send messages via satellite. Additionally, attendees can learn important skills from the Backpacker experts and have a chance to win exciting outdoor prizes.

“The Get Out More Tour combines the best of outdoor education and interactive gear workshops for enhancing one’s experience.” said Katie Schoeben, Global Marketing Director, Spot LLC. “Sheri and Randy bring a wealth of real-life experiences to their program making them ideal representatives of the SPOT brand.”

The 2011 Get Out More Tour will be great. Thanks for the reminder. Wish they would also do a stop at Sedona aside from Tucson.

Thanks for the news on this Jeff. Maybe we can make it to the Knoxville Stop. Of course that's provided our kiddo doesn't have a track meet.
