YB Adventure Tracker on the Kilimanjaro

In another perfect example of the YB Tracker’s use for Adventure tracking, Poltair School in the UK used a YBTracker on their successful expedition to mount Kilimanjaro:

Adventure Tracker Expedition

An example of YBTrackers in use on adventures, Poltair School, climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and everyone at home could follow their progress online.

The Poltair Kilimanjaro Team returned from their expedition to Tanzania having successfully climbed Kilimanjaro with six students and Expedition Leader Helen Blackburn (Outdoor Education teacher). These tough young adults aged from 14 to 22 had the adventure of a lifetime in the unique landscape of mountainous Tanzania

Helen Blackburn, the Expedition Leader of the Poltair Kilimanjaro Team said:

‘YB Tracking supplied the team with a tracker throughout the expedition. It was a piece of kit that everyone took very seriously! It was a special day when you carried the tracker (it was daily rotated through the team members)! I believe that global tracking systems are the way forward for many expeditions and for ours it meant that family, friends and school could find out exactly where we were and enjoy the elation with us when we reached the summit – one family was awake during the early hours of the morning to see us reach the Roof of Africa!’

There is no doubt how effective online Adventure Tracking improves media relations and generates public interest in remote events.

Originally designed for adventure racing, YBTrackers are now used in polar expeditions, skiing, trekking, mountaineering, cycling and countless other activities that take place in areas where normal communications are non existent.

YBTracker’s alert features complement existing safety procedures, allowing teams to immediately notify organisers of a problem via email or text message.
