It is shown how the special separability properties of the Kerr solution can be used to obtain an explicit analytic solution to the problem of constructing an orthonormal tetrad that is parallel-propagated along an arbitrary time-like geodesic. The components of the tidal tensor are calculated explicitly in terms of this tetrad. The special case of geodesics lying in the equatorial plane is examined.
