    I have had a SPOT for a couple of months and have done some testing of the tracking with my BMW. Last month we went from Reno, NV to Carmel by the sea, CA and I had the SPOT in the front pocket of my Santiago jacket. It was on tracking and the website tracking showed tracking messages 1 through 10 then the "OK" message which was #13. Along the route messages 11 & 12 were missing. Going home I put Spot in my RKA tank-bag in the clear map section and when I got home the website had all of the tracking messages. On another trip we went from Reno,NV to Citrus Heights (A&S BMW) and I put SPOT at the bottom of my empty tank-bag and all of the tracking messages came through. Going home I put SPOT in my GIVI back box and all the tracking messages came through. I was surprised that it worked through the tank-bag and more surprised that it worked in the GIVI box. For it to work correctly the SPOT logo must be facing up.

    how bad is the flooding in Reno/Sparks, NV?

    I-80 is open in both directions to Reno. The flood was around the river for the most part. Some streets affected with runoff. The TV weather says it may snow Monday but be sunny the rest of the week.

    Reno Riding Suggestions

    "Moon Rocks" would be a good place to go. Go to Sparks, NV (next to Reno) on McCarran BL, take a left on to Pyramid Way (it will change to Pyramid Hwy) go North about 15 miles, turn Left on to Winnemucca Ranch RD go past where the pavement ends (a mile or two). You will see a sign "Hungry Valley Recreation Area" Turn Left at the sign. Go a little way, less than a Mile at there will be a large parking lot on your Right and you will see lots of trails around. These are estimates, your mileage may vary.
