Is the Garmin Mini really worth the limited battery life over a standalone PLB like a ResQLink?
I really like the idea of having emergency texts but the monthly payment plan expense and battery life put me off.

Two different devices, some overlapping functionality.

If you don't need/want the additional features of the communicator (text-messaging, OK-messaging, tracking, help-but-not-911), then I'd recommend a PLB.

PLB = EPIRB = ELT. Difference is how they're deployed/activated; they all use the same system when activated.

PLB tx's on an internationally-protected frequency for life safety, at a much higher power than a communicator does.
Communicators share spectrum with satphones, telemetry devices, etc.

On "911" activation of a communicator, the process your provider follows is similar to what AFRCC does. Pulls up your profile/registration, tries calling your numbers to see if it's accidental, tries calling emergency contacts, then deploys local resources with that information.

PLB is a sealed battery, mine's 5-year maintenance. Costs about $100 to have the factory service it.
Communicators run on readily available batteries, and with moderate daily use will go a week or two. (Just doing a few check-ins/OK-messages a day, a set of AAA's will last well over a month.)

I don't care much about constant communication but the availability to know I can send out a message to a buddy to pick me up at the end of a trail seems like it would be something I'd love to have.

Then a PLB won't meet that need, and that's where the communicators are nice.

Know a lot of guys with wife/kids at home, who ride with a communicator. Peace of mind for those at home. PLB wouldn't do that either.

PLB is more of a professional rescue tool.

I usually carry a radio or three with me, so more often than not if I know i'll be out of phone coverage and i'm meeting someone, we'll coordinate a channel beforehand (or go off the IAP, if it's a planned event/traning/etc).
I'm less concerned about using satellite messaging for comms, since I have other equipment/networks I can use to relay messages if necessary. Forest service likes to see some redundancy with emergency plans for use permits too.

In my PLB's profile, I have a radio channel listed in there for responders to try and reach me on. It's a GMRS channel - since just about everyone has one of those radios, we can use any of them to monitor that freq while I can use my radios to try other systems.

Should get some fresh photos of the PLB on my pack... old pack, and I retired that shovel 4 years ago... way too big for rescue.

>>1498133
The main thing I want is an oh shit button. So I'm unsure if maybe I should try out radios instead of something like an Inreach which would achieve both.

Radios aren't as simple as press-button-get-help (consumer or even amateur stuff, anyways). Coverage, while usually good (especially public safety radio), isn't 100%. Then there's the licensing thing, and cost of that equipment (along with batteries to maintain, accessories/parts to replace (antennas, RSMs, belt clips, batteries).

Even with a lower-powered, less-antenna'd communicator, all you really need is a clear-ish view of the sky to get GPS lock and pop off a message.

Hello /out/

I´m interested in trying out bikepacking, and camping in the wild, but how does a camper cope with the fact that he, while sleeping in nature, is completely vulnerable to any malevolent being?

No matter how strong you are, any maniac who encounters you laying unconscious in the woods can kill you without any effort.

What´s your take on this?

Seems like we don't really have any good backpacking routes.
You could do the Bruce Trail but there aren't really campsites on a lot of the sections (so you'd end up having to use motels/B&B) and a lot of it isn't through real wilderness.

Another option is to just cross the border south and do some of the backpacking trails down there, or to go out east

This is the reason I pretty much only ever do canoe trips.
>>
>>1497836
I also do canoe trips because of this and also because of the hordes of retards from Toronto that overwhelm the Grey/Bruce/Simcoe areas in the summer.

I try to enforce the rule with every dog I see for a few reasons, first and foremost is to stay consistent...people are a lot easier to talk to and correct if they know its the same for everyone. Second and most important is even the most well behaved and tiny off leash dog can run up to a dog on leash who is not very good with other dogs, you just never know and ive seen some blood bathes from people who never in a million years thought it could go down like this.

Just trying to keep everyone safe out there.

I have a pretty remote trek coming up where I'll have to filter 100% of my drinking water. Normally I'd just use a Sawyer filter inline with my water bladder, but this time around I'd really like to try a nutritional drink mix. If I mix the drink powder into my water source, then drink it straight through a filter, I'm concerned that it will either damage the filter, or the nutritional content of the drink mix.

I'd like to find a way to quickly filter a large amount of water into my bladder, that way I don't have to worry about drinking the beverage through a filter. Quick and easy is the name of the game, the drink mix replaces most meals, so I have to use it basically every time I drink water, that means filtering water every single time I fill up my bladder.

Any ideas /out/?

How long do those gravity filters take? You could just bring a smart water bottle, fill with dirty, then squeeze through your Sawyer into your water bladder.
>>1497422
This.

>>1497436
The gravity filters take quite a while, but a squeeze filter isn't a bad idea, I'll look into that.

Duly noted on the water bladder. I'll make sure to take a bottle instead this time around.

>>1497415
I use a sawyer too, and a smart water bottle. fill up smart water bottle, squeeze into more permanent bottle like a nalgene. manageable on the go as well.
>>
>>1497415
When you say nutritional drink mix that replaces a meal, im thinking you mean some sort of protein powder mix.

It won’t work. Simply put. It doesn’t mater wether it’s a plant passed protein or a whey powder but if the drink mix has any sort of protein/carb/fat content it will fuck up the filter and leech into your hydration bladder and begin to culture mold.

How good are those sawyer squeezes? On my first and only backpacking trip i boiled water and it sucks. How often does the sawyer get clogged? Thats my only issue with it really.

This shit, just heat some water up and pour it into the carton, let it sit for a few minutes then dump it into a pan or skillet with a little bit of oil and fry it up. Add salt and pepper and you're good to go. There's actually enough in there for two breakfasts so I usually try to split it up.

Of you have a dog, you should be more careful of bears and cougars, I work in a large national park and I can’t tell you how many times two hippies where camping on a trail and Fido disappeared and they never found him. This also goes for smaller dogs and eagles, I found the rotten remains of a small unidentifiable dog once and my best guess is that a eagle pick the little shit up and dropped it from 500m but didn’t manage to find it to reap the rewards of its labour.
