    Thanks for post...your opinion is always valued.  I agree with that...I
    just wanted to get the issue out there for a little feedback from the
    members.  Since your crew can meet you anywhere, anytime on the trail, I
    don't see where contacting them by radio would be any different. IMHO, a
    GPS is no different from a "trail marker"...just electronic.
