Ever been lost?  Over the past 54 years of backpacking, I've managed to get myself so screwed around in the forests that the thought of becoming at one with nature permanently was a distinct possibility.  It only happened a couple of times but that was enough to put the fear of hundred pound rattlesnakes and saber toothed cougars into the ol' psyche.  GPS use became a regular affair with me shortly after the satellites were launched.  With the advent of the SPOT satellite trackers my whole family became at ease...figuring they could at least find my moldering body.  In my mid-60's, I still do more than a dozen outings a year into primitive country and most of those trips are solo.  Barring any loss of signals (I am a military trained orienteer so always carry maps and compass for backup) or dead batteries, I'm sold on the technology.  ALL OUTDOOR ENTHUSIASTS SHOULD TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THESE THINGS.  They work!
