    So...you want people to just give you money?......good luck with that.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Or you could just... you know. Not be an outdoorsman and spend that time when you'd be making them worry by being with them.
    Just a thought.
    Dunno how donations for non-CP stuff fits in either. You could atleast do a dance or something if you want monies.

    WOW!
    I can not believe someone would post something like this.
    Donations for you to buy something......


    I own the first SPOT and it's a great device for people who spend time outdoors when no cell phone service is available.

    I'd suggest you get one, but buy it yourself!

    Isn't the point of being out in the woods so that you are away from society and its technologies?

    Lewis and Clark didn't have SPOT satellite doohickys and they made it all the way to the Pacific ocean and back in a time when the wilderness of North America was in its prime...

    The outdoor's men that I know don't use or need these sort of devices.

    Personally, I feel it's only a fool that goes into the wilderness (as in, way off-trail, way out there, gone, etc.) without some means of communication. Be it a GPS locator or a satellite phone or what have you, I personally feel it's vitally important you bring some way to tell people where you are and that you need help should something go wrong. Regardless of how "outdoorsy" a person may be, they're still human; they still make mistakes and they can still be injured. Having a way to get out of a crappy situation like that should be, as far as I'm concerned, mandatory. While there are plenty of examples of people that have done or do fine without them, there are more than a handful of lives that could've been saved should they have brought something like SPOT along. So, if a person thinks they're above the possibility of making a wrong turn or taking the wrong step and injuring him or herself and, therefore, doesn't need technology in the wild, yes, I think said person is a fool.

    That said, I don't think you'll be too successful with your donation drive here. o.O

    I have a degree in outdoor recreation from paul smiths college, i spent 30 days in the woods with 6 other ppl, ever 8 days we had food droped off, we had no electronics other than watches, Yet we did have a satalite cell phone. In the course of 30 days we hiked 135 miles strait through the heart of the adirondacks. Its definatly a great i dea to have one but as long as you let somone know verbally and in writing where you plan to go and how long you plan on being and stick to it there should never be a need for a tracking device if u dont return than somone knows where u are and if your not back in time.

    Unless you leave for a two-week trip, for example, and injure yourself on the second day.
