Will it’s all over but the wait. Turned in my CCW paperwork at Metro and sent Utah’s off. Let see how long it will take.

What the hell? You thieves are my backup? There are 4 of you that get the same update messages when I send them. I can see how an emergency will go.

"Yo, you get that help message from the rabbit?"
"Yeah. Almost an hour ago. He probably bled out by now, right?"
"Probably. Get the others and bring your tool box."

Yeah, well the goo news is you will have a rapid response time...for some free ish!!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Just wait for natural causes. The wait won't be long. Buncha vultures.

YSB can you use the Spot without a smartphone? I'll have to check out that website, the GF is always worried when I go out camping for days.

I think it uses Android or IPhones. Here's how it works:

After you sign up, you assign people into various contact groups.

You can then create up to 14 different messages. I have messages like:
"About to enter a mine at this location."
"All clear. Heading home."
"Jeep disabled. Need help at this location."

Using my Android, I use the app to decide who gets whatever message. I don't need a cell signal. It uses satellites.

I can send any of the 14 custom messages any amount of times. Additionally, I paid an extra $29 for 100 custom messages from location to give detailed info. A follow up to one of the 14 canned messages. Something like:
"Bring parts and tools to repair snapped driveshaft."

It can't receive messages. This is strictly outgoing. DeLorme has a 2way device, but the service is $30-50 a month, I think. A bit too pricy for me.

For what it is, it seems great so far. Bass Pro carries them in stock. $150 for the Spot Connect. $100 for the annual service. Go get one!

It was a 2.5 right? Just out of curiosity, how much did you get? If I ever decide to sell, I wanted to know what I could expect. I put a new motor in it 10 months ago. I'm sure I'll never get all that cost back in a sale.

That's promising. I think I could probably get closer to 10k then.

Yeah, but just before I sell it, I'll put lots of chrome on it. Maybe some tube bumpers. I'll also take some cool pictures of it on rocks at an angle for the ad. Then, we're talking Maserati dollars.
