Safety in the field: trying out SPOT Gen3

We are wandering around the deserts, some of us, some of time. It would be nice to keep track of folks and ensure everyone is ok. Often, we have no cellular service. We tested a few units and for cost/benefit decided on the SPOT Gen3.

So far so good. We wanted functionality in messages and ability to send urgent but non-emergency responder messages to the rest of the team, i.e. I am ok but need to be picked up.

First message from field. OK but maybe not appropriate for family members šŸ™‚
