A Lonesome Polecat Riding Off The Grid
Many people with smart phones have become enamored with all of the cool mapping fitness apps that are available. I too have an iPhone with several mapping apps on it such as...Strava, Cyclemeter, Nike Running, Map My Ride, and Map My Run. They are pretty cool and fun to play around with, but if you come to ride in northern Minnesota they may be completely useless depending upon your cell service provider. I'm serviced by Verizon and can tell you that once I'm two miles north of town service is spotty to non-existent. In other words the only thing of practical use on the phone is the camera. You are literally on your own and riding off the grid and to be honest I'm perfectly fine with that.
