INTREPID explorer Mike Perham can be tracked electronically on his epic round-the-world drive.

Thanks to a hi-tech gadget installed in his converted campervan, the former Chancellor’s School, Brookmans Park, pupil and Potters Bar resident can be followed as he traverses the globe.

The device, given to Mike by RAM Tracking, allows people to follow his progress and see his route using GPS technology.

The effort, in aid of charity Shelterbox, is Mike’s second circumnavigation of the globe – the first was by sailing boat in 2008 as a 16-year-old.

A spokesman said: “RAM has provided Mike with a portable tracking unit that will relay his live position so that supporters and family can follow his progress.

“As well as displaying Mike’s current location, the RAM tracking page shows a red ‘snail trail’ that indicates the journey thus far, starting in London and finishing in over four month’s time.”

When we checked this week he was in New Zealand.
