    Thumbs up A great story....

    I guess that makes for the ultimate first to find. Glad it was a good ending for the two ladies.
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    Wow, they are very lucky the cachers came along. I cache alone most of the time and thoughts of things like this cross my mind I'll admit.

    Hope that they learned not to take a mini van on trails! I could see something like this happening in the wilderness of Maine very easily! I have two SPOT Sat emergency transceivers. One in the Jeep and one at home which I am figuring out how to make into a LITERAL Trackable Travel Bug!

    I saw DeLorme demoing those SPOT units at Geowoodstock. Very cool product if you are caching alone in remote areas.

    You would just need $150 per year for tracking subscription and 100 packs of batteries per year to power it

    Every car should be equipped with similar device by law. Something like OnStar except using satellites like SPOT. When car detects collision it will automatically send SOS signal with your position or you can call for help by yourself or you can track your lost or stolen car.

    if the law ever required me to have something like this, I would never own another vehicle....
