Happy Turkey Day – Fun with GPS

My husband and I were having fun with our GPS-based “RunKeeper” app for the iPhone.  You take your phone with you when you walk, hike or bike, and it shows you calories burned, miles walked, and, once you’re done and you’ve uploaded it, it can show you where you walked on a map at the RunKeeper.com web site.  You can see our latest path as the red line below.  (except for the poor girl who realized she was color blind when I posted my color blind story… you, my dear, note the gray line…  🙂  ).

We thought it would be funny to walk in the path of my name, and see if it said “AMY” on our map when we got home.  We bungled it terribly (we’ll try again). BUT like Jesus’ face on a piece of toast – a holiday miracle DID appear!

TA DA! Happy Thanksgiving!

    Poor color blind girl loves a good turkey day shout out! Definitely checking out the app. Should we see who can spell “AMY” first? =)

      I think Mike was so depressed that “amy” ended up looking like a turkey head that now I’ve had to downgrade my hopes to just making a big A!
