    OB Approved The Importance of Search and Rescue Insurance, Donations, and SAR Cards (US)

    This article applies to the United States, but the information may be useful to those outside of the U.S. as well.

    How many of you have purchased SAR cards where you wheel? Carry a personal GPS?

    Have you purchased a SAR card? I have one for Colorado... $12 for 5 years, no brainer. Do you carry a personal GPS device (SPOT, inReach, etc.)? Do you have GEOS or a GEOS-type SAR membership?

    inReach Communicator - how do you use yours?

    There's lots of discussion about different types of navigators and communication devices and which ones are "best" or suit individual preferences, but I want this to focus on inReach.

    Danger of leaving water bottles in your vehicle

    I wasn't quite sure where to post this, but figured water bottles probably count as "gear". This is an article about an Idaho Power employee talking about how a water bottle left in a hot vehicle on a sunny day almost started a fire.

    Here's my dilemma, which I'm sure many of you face - when you can't afford to buy needed safety equipment, should you look for short cuts? Let me give an example. I think most would agree that a winch is a desired tool out on the trail. Recently, I bought and installed a Warn Winch only to...
