Of course. In any case, it is up to Chief to verify that someone did the EC when they claimed they did, but did not show up on the Mapper. This guy, Triman, seems very suspicious. The only way to verify is if someone else can vouch for them--that they saw them on the route. That is a little easier when kayaking with dozens of others on the inside WW route. I think it is much more difficult if it is an AI/TI traveling alone on the outside. In this case your SPOT needs to be tracking properly.
Why are their so many Tandem Islands whose SPOT did not track at all during the race--at least 4?
Are Tandem Island owners less tech savvy than almost all other WTers?
I've decided to quit trying to follow TI competitors who have not shown up on any route during the EC. No evidence that they have done the EC from my point of view. I don't know how Chief enforces the rules--I think he has been fairly lenient relying on an honor code.
I have a question regarding SPOT tracking myself, maybe you can shed some light on this.
I properly registered my SPOT, created a "Shared Page" and verified with Chief That all was done properly. Yet, I didn't show up on the Map Tracker. However, my family and friends were able to follow my entire journey:http://share.findmespot.com/shared/face ... LKZ7boybIa
Honestly, I was personally disappointed that my track was not listed with the others and I hope someone comes up with a way to resolve this. If you are aware of a way to do this, please share. I want to thank you for posting updates here as well. Being a 2014 Rookie, a lot of lessons were learned. Thanks for any insight or suggestions!
