OK. Here’s the picture. We are at a point in our lives where, if we are going to continue camping at some of our favorite rather remote parks, we should carry some kind of emergency SOS beacon. So I’ve been researching SOS messaging devices; Garmin inReach, SPOT, Ocean Signal , ACR ResQlink, etc. Does anyone have something like this? Pros & Cons? Any recommendations?
We are both relatively healthy but Jack recently had hip surgery and has had 2 hip dislocations since surgery. If that happens, he probably couldn’t be safely moved without a stretcher.
We are never totally isolated. But, for instance, at our favorite place there is zero phone reception and the nearest town is 1.5 hours away. The nearest place to contact the outside world is a lodge 45 min away where they have a 2-way radio. When we are not together, we use walkie-talkies with limited range to stay in touch.
Any suggestions are welcome.
