Four years ago, Daniel took a solo trip in the winter to Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana. His plan was to take backroads and find some very secluded camping. Prior to leaving, he shared the plan with his family, and his mother began to cry. She was worried he was going to get lost or stuck and be stranded without a way to contact anyone for help. (Daniel was 30 at the time) Daniel looked for a solution and found the Garmin InReach. With the InReach, Daniel was able to provide his family with a breadcrumb trail of his travels, and also communicate while outside of cell service via text message.
Buy an Inreach product if you are looking to add safety and security to your offgrid travels. Grab a small unit if you would like to take it out of the vehicle and go for a hike, or grab a larger unit like the (8” or 10”) Tread and leave it in your vehicle, your primary source of Navigation. We love the Tread for those that are not big hikers but want to go to remote places with no service. We really like the InReach mini, paired with a smaller Tread unit for those who want to have a source of navigation in their vehicle but also bring the InReach or InReach mini with them on a hike.
