The Jersey Shore by Karl Hess

Annapolis Walking: Eastport to Naval Academy (with tech along for the ride)

I always found sailing to be a much better mode of transportation as opposed to walking.  If you left my little town of Barnegat , went down the Jersey Shore utilizing the inland waterway, maybe stopping in seaside towns of Tuckerton Ocean City and Cape May, how long would the journey be to Annapolis...a couple of days?

I was reminded by my darlin wife, the Rev. Tracey Moe (AnnapolisWeddingMinister.com) that we get to enjoy every day the pleasures that folks pay lots of money to vacation here for a few days. Hmmm, how might I capture one of the fine features of great living in Annapolis? Combining with a need for exercise, a desire to catch up with real estate podcasts, and perhaps an Active Rain blog -- all at the same time? That would be the ultimate multi-tasking.

I live close enough to downtown Annapolis and the Naval Academy that I love the 6-mile walk, almost all on waterfront. In the evening of a lovely summer day with a cool breeze off the water, that shouldn't count as "exercise" should it?

Listing to a NAR podcast or a Gary Keller audiobook (founder of Keller Williams) gives added value too.

How can I share this pleasure with my Active Rain friends/associates? For a tech guy, the answer to all the world's problems is simple: Software! (Or, as Apple puts it: There's an App for That!) Indeed, there is -- in this case, it's called EveryTrail. It records the walk, and allows photos to be taken along the way. At the end, it uploads to the net where it can be shared with all y'all. Free.

Here's the link for the full slideshow: http://www.realtorcurthess.com/community/Eastport2USNA_walk.html
  (All photos taken with iPhone4 - note how the app shows exactly where the photo was taken - kewl)

Of course, I can't miss the obvious application of this tool for my out-of-town clients who want to see the neighborhood, a few steps at a time. Coming soon for Annapolis....for sure!
