Most camping enthusiasts consider unplugging to be an essential part of immersing themselves in the backcountry.
Whether we like it or not, emergency situations happen everywhere. What if something bad happens during a remote travel when you are five miles away from the closest road (especially when you are alone) and don’t have cell service? Won’t you need a reliable way to call for help?
Having a PLB (Personal Locator Beacon) in that type of situations can be the difference between life and death! There is NO subscription fee to use a PLB and it has a stronger signal than a satellite messenger.
