Episode 3 Topics:
What constitutes an emergency?
SPOT and InReach devices allow you to call for help as well as send the message to a preprogrammed list of emails or texts. This could be a life saver or at least a huge hand if they know your route and make contact through forums or email with local people.
At what point do you really require rescue, as opposed to just some help.
What are some other methods of handling emergencies?
Some countries bill for SAR? How does that affect your outlook?
Should preplanning your adventure in case of a "situation” include, getting to know others on forums so you have someone to reach out to in areas where SAR may cost or be unavailable?
