I just picked up my new Personal Locator Beacon, the ACR "ResQLink" model# PLB-375 and it is small but powerful.

I had a difficult ego Resistance to this decision. I did not want to accept that I might need to someday be rescued. In more than 40+ years of professionally guiding others, and thousands of solo expeditions in Alaska, I had always relied on myself to rescue myself, no matter what the trauma.

(Being old SUCKS, but it is more gooooder than the alternative).

New to forum and am glad to see another Alaskan. Haven't needed one yet but someday probably.

The whole world sucks, America sucks a lot less and Alaska don't suck at all.

I got a McMurdo FastFind this year - hopefully I won't have to use it, but I have been airlifted out of the bush once before* and if something goes wrong again I don't want to have to rely on mobile phone reception.

* don't ask me why I fell off a cliff - I have no recollection.
