Loved your article. Agree with you on all levels. Common sense and responsible precautions, if not for ourselves, then surely for others should rule the day. Be the one who can signal for immediate help for someone else you may come across. Maybe we'll meet on a trail someday and share some jerky

Nice to get such great confirmation from someone in the trenches! Thanks! I'll be taking my new InReach into the wilderness for the firs time this week... ;)

Looking forward to reading about your experience with it B2. :nod:
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
