PhotoTrackr Contest


Yup its another contest entry. Sure I know I am not going to win. I never win these thing because to win I would need people to vote for me every day. I know that is not going to happen. You people have lives I am lucky you stop by and check out what I am doing once a week or so.

It would be nice to win though. The prize is a “GiSTEQ™ PhotoTrackr™ Lite. So what the heck is a GiSTEQ™ PhotoTrackr™ Lite? I am probably going to get in trouble for this Drew does not like when I simplify his products. He was none to happy when I described the X-shot as a stick with the screw. Well the GiSTEQ™ PhotoTrackr™ Lite is really just a GPS. It keeps track of where you are and what time you were there.

Why is this cool? Well it allows you to attach GPS data to you pictures when you pull them off you camera. This assumes the PhotoTrackr was in the same place as the camera when you took the picture and that the clocks are synchronized. Basically set the clock and clip the PhotoTrackr to your camera bag and you are all set. Now why the heck would you want GPS data in your pictures? Well my A takes a ton of sunset photos, I don’t know why I am way more fun to look at than a silly sunset. Problem is I can never tell if where he took the picture. The sunset in Bonaire looks the same as the sunset from the top of Jackson Hole which looks the same as a sunset at the dump. However if he had a PhotoTracker we would know where each picture was taken.

So why should I win one of these suckers. Well have you ever seen the movie Far From Home: The Adventures of Yellow Dog? If you have not seen it, it is one of the best dog movies out there. The Plot is pretty simple it is about a Yellow Lab who gets lost in the wilderness. The movie follows yellow dog as he tried to get back to his family. My A really like the movie but has been unable to watch it since his yellow lab Roger was put down a few years ago. Roger looks a lot like Yellow Dog. I know he has the movie in his Netflix queue and he keeps pushing it back to the bottom.

Anyway there are some many of these Hollywood dog gets lost, dog goes on incredible journey to come home movies. Some of them are great (yellow dog), some are good (the incredible journey) and some are terrible (I will not name them). What they all have in common are they are Hollywood movies. The are great stories and pull at your heart strings but they are not real.

Today it is all about reality. So I am thinking if I had a camera and a PhotoTrackr I could go on my own incredible journey. I still need to work out the details but I will figure it out. I would use the PhotoTracker and a Doggie cam to document my own incredible journey

I think it is about time we dogs stepped up allowed you people see what we really go through. If you want more insight into the what I do then vote for me. I live a pretty interesting life and I am willing to share it with you. I just need a PhotoTrackr. Look at Drew he has a PhotoTrackr and we know more about him than you probably ever wanted to know.


Now to fulfill the contest requirements

I won't watch any dog movies from Hollywood or anywhere. I am so tired of being manipulated into tears. And I can't stand sad animal stories anymore. This started back when Bambi first came out. Even as a little kid I became angry at the manipulation and never saw another one.

I want GPS in my camera itself so I don't have to do a thing. I want GPS in my cats.
