SPOT SOS ACTIVATION BRINGS HELP DURING FATHER DAUGHTER HIKING TRIP
For Californian Bryan Hall hiking and backpacking are part of his lifestyle. A SPOT X owner for two years, Hall was mostly using his SPOT device for tracking and checking in with family when out on solo trips. On a recent trip, Hall set out with his daughter to hike the John Muir Trail from Yosemite Valley to Mt. Whitney. A hundred and fifty miles into their trip, the duo were closing out their day in Le Conte canyon by rinsing off in the Kings river when his daughter slipped and fell.
