Delorme Inreach SE =awesome. Handshake tells you msg received and can 2 way txt. GPS too. Uses Iridium Sat system, very reliable...ReConn good too. No batteries required!
Like the old Amex commercial "don't leave home w/o it"
Use this forum to stay informed on missing persons alerts, active SAR's and unfortunate hiker accidents we can all hopefully learn from. Any information you may have on a missing person, including first hand weather related information or any other insight (however little) may prove to be critical information to Law Enforcement / SAR in locating the person in question.
I do not understand the reluctance to simply turn back and return the way you came when you run into too much snow of difficult terrain. I have retreated plenty of itmes. It beats trying uncertain new routes forward.
