Angler and Hunter
"Finally I have a way to let my family know that I'm ok (or not) while fishing and hunting! Over the years, I've dabbled with various devices that can reach emergency services if I'm lost or injured... but none of them allowed me the opportunity to communicate reliably with my family and track my movements. My SPOT GEN3
lets them know if I'm ok, if I'll be late, if I need non-life-threatening assistance, or if I need emergency-responders. All of us just feel a little more secure not having to wait for me to get back in cell service to check in."
"The Obsession of Carter Andrews"
"Whether I am on a fishing adventure with my family and friends or filming an episode of my TV show The Obsession of Carter Andrews I travel with my SPOT GEN3
. The security and confidence I feel with SPOT
allows me to enjoy the adventure that much more."

"Being alone in the wilderness with no cell service is unsettling. As an aspiring solo hunter in the vast open space of the Western U.S., the SPOT GEN 3
gives me the confidence to explore. From its tracking capability to the SOS feature, the SPOT
device reassures my family that I'm safe and gives me tremendous peace of mind knowing that if I ever do end up in a survival situation I can summon help with the touch of a button."
"Long Haul Paul"
"In addition to having peace of mind while traveling alone, my SPOT allows my supporters to follow my journey as I cross the continent chasing a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. MS may have taken my memory, but by using the SPOT GEN3
, I no longer worry about forgetting to call my wife after long days on the road. Yes, my SPOT doubles as a marriage saving device!"

Ryan Petry is a professional endurance mountain biker and adventure athlete. Over the past 6 years living in Boulder, CO he's found himself on podiums at the hardest cross-country races in the country. He has taken that endurance and speed and gradually shifted to push the limits of how far and fast he can move through the mountains outside of racing. He is fueled by seeing places few people have ever seen, and uses his bike to access these remote areas on the rowdy adventures he dreams up. He hopes his rides spark creativity in others to get off the standard routes and chase a unique experience that stokes their fire to get out and push their limits.

We are modern-day nomads, spending more time in the backcountry or on the road than settled somewhere. Over the years, our SPOT
device has given peace of mind to our friends and families with our 12,000 cumulative trail miles and goals to reach the highest peak in every state. When Justin climbed Denali in 2016, I (Patrice) stalked his SPOT
check-ins. I am so stoked we’ve upgraded to the SPOT X
two-way satellite messenger for his 2019 Denali climb. As the person left behind, it will ease the worry at least some!
