25th Blackburn Challenge; Joey: Send me a photo!

The morning of the Blackburn Challenge and Joey was having a GMG meltdown. Or maybe he was was giving birth to puppies. But we were getting ready to go for a long paddle and Ed and I had not sent him any photos. I was trying to set up my iPhone to send a GPS signal so GMG could track us go around Cape Ann but Joey was sending me a text message every five minutes which would kill the GPS app.

I did get a photo but forgot that it was on HDR setting. I emailed it to Joey and he never received it since it was so large. Today, I finally figured out how to get it yanked from my outbox. Here we are discussing racing strategy. Once Ed realized I had Sue set up to deliver us cold beers as we rounded Andrews Point we were all set.

 Only 290 days left to the 26th Blackburn Challenge.

    Having an iPhone or Android phone it is so incredibly easy to fire off one shot of the staging area or something interesting from any event. Our blogging software gives each contributor a unique email address so that all one needs to do is to take the picture and send it to that email address which should be saved in your contact list and voila, the picture appears on the blog for all our readers to see.

    We’re not some old time newspaper who can’t figure this shit out for christs sake.

    It’s literally three buttons to press. Oy!

    I will say that following your progress via the google map was awesome though!
