|Crossing the Ohio River near Louisville|
We've had a few projects we've worked on along the way in order to be all ready to rock n roll for the rest of the trip. First off, the mobile hot-spot which we have mounted to an external antennae has worked very well....probably faster than my internet at home. This has allowed us to successfully install DeLorme Street Atlas USA 2014 Plus on one of the two laptops we've brought along. We have a GPS receiver attached to it through the USB port which uses rapid satellite acquisition to plot our location on this mapping software (Below is what it looks like). This will provide quick route making decisions when we're in the storm environment over the coming days.
With fast internet and those two necessities all figured out (GPS navigation and radar), we are all set to chase. The only additional things we'd like to straighten out tonight are 1) displaying our live GPS coordinates online for anyone following us back home & 2) Getting our GoPro to stream live video online. We hope to sort this out tonight at the hotel along with our chase plans heading into Monday! Keep up to date with us here---- StormCruzzer
