REALITY: Technology is fickle; tell someone your plans

Batteries die; reception is spotty; your phone isn’t invincible. Having a cell phone or satellite beacon is no substitute for “being both appropriately prepared with the right clothing and letting people know where you’re going,” says Smith. The best way to ensure rescue is to tell someone where you’re headed and when you’ll be back so that person can trigger a search and rescue operation if you don’t return. Tony Nester agrees: “My wife and I have a two-hour window, where, if I go out and I’m not back by 6 p.m., she waits till 8 to call for help. She’s my safety net.”
