yup, pretty stupid going solo, no cell service nothin. Dug for a bit with one of those survival shovels, what a crock that was, and remembered I have a spade shovel buried in the heep. Two hours digging and dropped the tires to 4 psi , I finally got out and turned around. I had blankets, spare boots, jacket, gloves toque, water food and beer just incase I was sleeping there. Big lesson to me. I ordered a spot connect gps for my smartphone this morning.

Hope you weren't trying to follow quad tracks ha ha!! Glad you made 'er out safely Justin!

I wish they had a SPOT attachment for the Blackberry, would be really handy to be able to text out and receive as well. Going to have to look at one for this summer for sure.

sled tracks! lol, can't wait to get this thing and try it, for everywhere I go, theres so many places I could get screwed, if its a full day trip in and out by jeep , I can't imagine walking out! It's only andoid and smartphone compatiable so far?
