    So much to see, so little time. Try using your 4WD to see and do more.

    I give my wife or a family friend the itinerary and my access to a few forums I frequent. They can send out the help message with my Lat/Long for non emergent situations.

    Many of my trips exploring are solo. I carry both my SARSAT Beacon which I need to be conscious to activate, and my Satellite Personal tracker "SPOT". The tracker sends my location every ten minutes. It also allows an "all ok" message to be sent at will. In the event that I am injured and either unconscious, or physically unable to activite the "need help" message, the locater message will just park on my location and send a postition message every 10 minutes. My wife can look up my SPOT site and knows that if the beacon is parked and there is no "OK" message she is to call the local authorities to send out Search & Rescue.

    Thanks,
