Enjoy camping, but Please be SAFE!!

I read an article about a young single mother who was on adventure and camping at the Joshua Tree. Her body was found a month or so later. Be aware of your surroundings and take no unnecessary risks. If you must camp alone, be extra cautious all the time.

While electronics can't replace common sense and taking other steps to be prepared, get an inReach satellite text messager. At $15 a month for the Safety plan, it's a no brainer IMO.

I agree with you. I definitely plan on getting one of these before we go on any long trips. Thanks for the reminder.

We really need to get a satellite messenger. We do carry a PLB - so have an ability to send a SOS. It does not require any subscription.

The following has some limitations (e.g. NA only) but does not require a subscription...
