Everyday I drive a lot of miles to both soccer practice and school. Fortunately I carpool to and from school with four other passengers. Unfortunately I do not carpool to soccer practice…which I drive 60 miles round trip three out of five days of the week…awkward right? However, lately I have been 30 miles roundtrip to my teammates house in a neighboring city and from there we carpool the last 30 miles if that makes sense. It is hard for me to give up my mode of transportation because sports is such a big part of my life, but I do carpool when I can.
Adventurers ‘check into’ the wild with social networking
These days adventure travelers rely on apps and social networking to track their progress and share experiences with friends and the online community.
Parker Liautaud, now 17, became the first person to “check into” the North Pole via the location-based social networking site Foursquare in 2010. Since then he’s been tweeting and posting on Facebook about his travels. In April he will be broadcasting his next adventure to the North Pole using Ustream to beam his trip worldwide live on the web.
