That's a great idea. It's not that expensive. I have one and used it when I was in Sudan and I will use it when I go detecting.

It has a standard message, and a custom message, a Emergency send out the reinforcements button that will notify search and rescue, or you can use the HELP button that just sends a message to your family. You can pre-program the text to say something like. I'm OK but I need help come to my location.


Thanks Chris, I could use that for sure.

I got the Spot Connect. It works with my smart phone.$99 a year and$50 for the texting, you can sent out text messages thru the satellite ,no need for a phone signal. MY wife knows I'll get help in a hurry. I also use a product called Thermo-Tabs, available behind the pharmacy counter. They contain Sodium and Potassium and they work. I put one in my mouth when I'm getting too much heat, if I need it ,it tastes GREAT, if not it has a bad taste and I spit it out.That and plenty of fluids and I'm good all day in the HIGH heat. Dave

Interesting, long and funny article Doc;

sweat manly sweat, and develop manly smells emanating from my armpits that make cacti within a 100 yard radius die



Chris it is not funny at all.Actually Ive had something similar .Long time ago ,one day I decided to go to the nearest city by foot.It was like seven

kilometers from where I live .Being younger than I now, after taking breakfast . I headed towards my destination , about 11 am.

Encouraged by a mild moisturized weather.Carrying no supplies or drinks.I got faster at first, then when I got tired slowed down

a bit .There's water nearby by - in canals- but it's contaminated .So by the end of the journey I almost couldn't feel my feets.

Luckily,when I arrived at last found a house with water tank outside.I rushed to drink all I could and soaking my head and feet.

That day I nearly totally dehydrated.Kept on taking water till I could not more.I took some money with, that's helped a lot in

buying natural juice drinks and some choko.At the end of day I returned home by bus. That experience will never forget.I made

a mistake by not telling my family or anyone where am going.Not even at that time there's is cell phone operator in the area.

Chris I am glad you're fine now.We humans make mistakes, yet we learn a lot from them.

Peace to you and your family.
