Hi, Yvonne.

We have the Safety Plan for $11.95/month.

Safety Plan Details
  • Unlimited SOS (hope never to use it!!!)
  • 10 text messages/month
  • Unlimited Preset messages (predefined messages set up on the website)
  • Tracking points: $0.10 USD for each point
  • Overages are $0.50 USD for each text message over the 10 messages allowed in the monthly plan period.
  • Text messages include free-form sent messages and received messages.
  • Tracking points refer to the individual "breadcrumbs" sent by the inReach at user-selected intervals ranging from 10 minutes to 4 hours.
thanks Stephanie, it's the plan I think will work the best.
It's just to have some peace of mind when I venture out on my off trail day hikes.

I use the plan of telling the wife my route and times. And have a backup. Never had a need for anything else
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?
I use the most basic plan, I just leave the inreach in my daypack and then spur of the moment trips are easy.
