If you would like to send us some free messages offshore we will have the Iridium phone up and on at all times. Just follow the simple instructions below:http://messaging.iridium.com/ you leave the number 8816 that is already in the number slot and add our number to it 32521786 then just type in your message. Don't bother putting your email in the email line as it just uses up the number of letters you can type. However, I (Rebecca) put in a code like Bec1, so they know who it is from. As well, as the order. I send up to 5 at a time and they are not delivered in order. (160 total per message)
But you can send as many as you like and they are free.
When the beep goes off from the phone we always jump to see what it says...
We will also have the SPOT updating every 6 hours or so if you would like to keep track of our progress up the coast.
Just click on the word SPOT up in the upper left of this blog and it will link you to our position.
I will post as the emails come in, so check back daily for the updates.
Fair Winds and Calm Seas,
