No, we’re not talking about a job advertisement; we’re talking about the words coming from JT at shootingresources.com. See his interesting review of SPOT and how its design and functionality help thousands live up to the challenge of making it back in one piece while exploring or doing some of life’s most dangerous work. JT: “…It was the longest and probably the most in depth testing we have ever done. We did this for a reason though. This was designed as a rescue device and as such you are putting your life on the line with this one piece of equipment. This is your last hope of rescue or survival therefore it must work flawlessly. So before I would say “yes this works go check it out,” I want to make sure that I trust it with not only my life but those that are closest to me too. So how did the SPOT hold up after all of this? It was nothing short of amazing to be honest. The SPOT is tough plain and simple, there is not much in the normal world that is going to break this device. It held up under every harshness that we threw at it. It needed just a little more than cleaning or to pick it up and dust it off. Sure it shows a little cosmetic wear but who cares it still works.” Click here for the full review.

Bill, current President of Ruby Valley Search and Rescue and a "retired" Army pilot, is an avid hunter and fisherman. Needless to say, Bill spends a lot of time outdoors; he jokingly states he knows most trees on a first name basis.
Several years ago, Bill developed a preparedness plan, which included having a SPOT device. He even developed a messaging system for friends and family on his contact list: (1) Check In message in the morning and evening to family and friends, (2) Check In messages back to back to let them know he got an elk, and (3) Check In messages back to back to let everyone know that he was headed out of the backcountry.
