Oops - sorry Logan. But most of us are so fat we'll survive for weeks
Where did you rent the Sat phone from? This is something I would be interested in doing for some of the longer expeditions I go on.I am glad this thread popped back up. I missed it the first time around. The SPOT device almost seems like a must have and as mentioned, pretty affordable.
As for Sat Phones, they can also be pretty affordable. We rented one for our Mojave Road run in June. $45 total, didn't need to use it, paid $9 a day rental, they pay for shipping both ways. Good peace of mind with a group of people out of cell range.
I am thinking the SPOT will be our next recovery mod.
Oh very cool! I didn't know they rented Iridiums. My company is the one who develops the Iridium phones, and I worked on that project for sometime. haha. Thanks for the link I will check this out.You can rent an iridium from Satellite Phones for Purchase or Rental - Iridium, Globalstar, Inmarsat, Thuraya and Many More
$40 for 7 days
