Fred and Ernest are en route!

A few days ago, Fred and Ernest Lotter dropped into the office to pick up the last boxes of swag and Raspberry Pis they’re taking with them on their epic Raspberry Pi odyssey through Europe, Russia, the Middle East and Africa. You can read more about their trip in our earlier post. They’ve arranged a lot of stops along the way, but if you’d like them to visit you, you can still email them if you’re not too far off the proposed route, and they’ll see what they can do.

Currently, the Lotter boys are in Minden, Germany, where they’re visiting the local university and spreading the good news about embedded systems, the Pi and ARM. (This article is in German, but Google Translate works a treat if your German isn’t up to much beyond asking the way to the station and expressing a love of cycling.)

Fred and Ernest are using Facebook to keep everyone up to date with what they’re up to. You can also follow their progress via this map, which tracks their Landrover using GPS. If you can find them using that map, they may have a Pi-themed reward of some kind for you (plus, they’re awfully nice to hang out with).

We’ll be keeping you updated with the Lotter brothers’ progress every now and then; good luck if you decide to go out and find them!
