If you've read the story below about the adventurer who died of hypothermia in Scotland's wilderness, I bet you are asking yourself what the unfortunate man could have done better in order to prevent such a dramatic outcome.
Well, the solution is simple and affordable. Never engage in any kind of activity in remote locations without carrying a Personal Locator Beacon ( PLB). The PLB is smaller than the average cell phone, doesn't need to be charged, is affordable ( starting at around $ 299.00 ) and 100% reliable. When confronted with an emergency, you simply activate the device which transmits you ID and exact location to the COSPASS -SARSAT rescue satellites orbiting the Earth. The international rescue center will immediately activate local emergency teams to provide help as fats as possible. It's the best insurance I know and it's worth every cent. Our teams are ALWAYS deployed with PLB's.
