since I never tell anyone when and how long I go, no one would miss me if I would get into trouble.
Some of my close friends and my Hawaiian ohana didn't like it, so I decided it might be a good idea to get some sort of peace of mind in case I run into trouble.
I used my dividends and bought the In Reach Mini. Even though I barely backpack, I do get out in the backcountry on long extended day hikes. You never know, even on day hikes, you can get in trouble.
So what plans do you guys use?
