Hiking the Catskills with six-year-olds

Article Article
Taking off my hiking boots and Smartwool socks, I step barefoot into the rushing water, telling my six-year-old son to climb up on my back. The river is cold and swift, and there’s simply no easy way to ford it. We are in a wild section of the Catskill mountains in upstate New York, and the only viable camping spot is on the other side of the river. Is Max concerned? A laugh in my ear assures me that he is not. Neither he nor his friend Sophie has been frightened by the slippery vertical trails, the huge pile of bear scat, or the half-dozen poisonous snakes we’ve seen on the trail. So, crossing a river on dad’s back is no problem.

Rescued boater recalls fighting for life in freezing Kakisa Lake waters

Article Article
One of the men rescued from a capsized boat in N.W.T.'s Kakisa Lake says he "accepted death" while fighting for his life in tumultuous lake conditions earlier this month — and that it's a miracle he's alive.
Dan Acton and his friends left for a fishing trip on May 16.
After their boat overturned in rough weather conditions, the men made a distress call from a SPOT satellite emergency device. The call was routed to the United States, then to Fort Providence RCMP at 7:20 p.m., who alerted Kakisa Chief Lloyd Chicot.

FIREFIGHTER RESCUES PILOT AFTER PLANE CRASHES INTO TOP OF TREE

Article Article
You know what they say about any landing you can walk away from……
That is what 79-year old John Gregory of McCall, Idaho did after his Piper Cub PA-18 crashed on top of a 60-foot white fir tree east of McCall Monday night. He had to be extracted from the plane and lowered to the ground by firefighters, but after his feet were firmly on top of snow at the base of the tree, he walked away uninjured.
Mr. Gregory had taken off at Challis and was intending to land at the McCall Airport but the plane lost power.

SPOT X featured in Explore Magazine

Article Article
An upgrade from the classic Gen3 satellite locator beacon, Spot X adds the ability to send and receive 140-character emails or text messages, along with rudimentary navigational features and, of course, the SOS function. The latter summons emergency assistance via the Globalstar satellite network; the former allows adventurers to stay in touch with home-base; both function when travels go way off-grid. And we appreciate the new month-to-month service plans so we can use the Spot X as needed and shelve it the rest of the time.
