How many here carry a device like the Garmin InReach?

I carry a Gen3 SPOT like the one pictured here when I remember to hook it to my vest.  I only use the thing when hunting alone in new areas I'm basically unfamiliar with ie; northern Maine.  So far, no rescues required.

I have a satellite phone that I carry. Never had to use it, but...  And at 61 y.o., I don't do stupid stuff anymore.

I hunt alone.  


I also travel alone to the rivers until I meet up with my fly fishing Buddy(s).
 

I have an InReach mini that is always in my truck.  
 

My travels are usually very early and oftentimes very late and away from home.
 

And, many times I have a dog trailer or drift boat towed behind the truck.  
 

Wife can now track every move.  Well... almost every move.

 

And, I recently started carrying the Garmin 200i while in the coverts.  Note, the 200i is on the plan that can be suspended outside of Grouse season.

 

I am not afraid; but, the confidence or maybe comfort this give my wife results in the freedom to do what I want and when I want and where I want.

 

Remember...  the best life has the fewest spectators.  I like being alone; but, who knows know who can see those digital tracks.

 

This post started about those taking excess risks because of these devices...  very sad and very careless.

 

Best to all...
