Hey, do any of you ever worry about sleddn somewhere and getting stuck in the middle of nowhere (ie; breakdown or something else) and not be able to reach someone for help or even if you could, have a hard time telling them where you are? Though very pricey, this seems pretty cool. Check out www.wherify.com.

Before you say it - I know, cellphone and GPS would do the same thing.

I have a cell phone with a signal booster. I always have a low temp compass and a map. If I could afford one, I would get a GPS, but I haven't gotten lost (to bad) yet.

my grandma in her old senile age always buys those AAA cellphone offers that she gets in the mail. My dad cancells them, and we keep the phone. A few weeks ago I went and grabed one, charged it up, and charged up the spare battery. I then turned it off, and wrapped it in a towel, then I put it in a ziplock bag, and stuffed it into the the rear compartment. The phone is NOT activated, but AFAIK even not-activated phones will dial 911... And you can make calls just by putting in a credit card number. The screen did get cracked a little the last time out, I guess all that jumping I did isn't too good for the phone :) But the batteries stay charged for a while, it's still on like 2/3rds, and it's sat outside in the cold for almost a month now.
