    missing hiker

    other than that, do you post and check in where you will be going each day?

    people have mentioned sat phones and some other technology I didn't understand...do you carry a beacon or the like?

    •  Hi Kenbee (6+ / 0-)

      If you are asking me about hiking/skiing I don't carry a phone (satellite or cell) or a beacon. I do tell mrs. jbob where i'll be going and when to expect me to check in. If you're asking somebody else, sorry for jumping in. sometimes it is hard to tell what comments are strung together. Forester Bob might need to carry a satellite phone just in case. I'm not that hard core.

      to get me safely out of the woods that I enter. On this job, I send a text message to the company forester every evening.

      The terrain is fairly gentle; no cliffs from which to fall. There are wolves and bears and cougars, but it's still safer than your average city.
