    What's a PLB snide?
    I personally despise GPS units. I've worked with too many. A compass and map is so much more trustworthy.

    Personal Locator Beacon; basically a back-up emergency contact device. You register it with the National Search and Rescue (Canadian Military) who it sends an SOS signal to if activated. The signal is far more reliable than spot, there is no activation or service fees, and you can count on Canadians coordinating your rescue wherever you are in the world.

    There are even one or two that for a lower fee than spot can be used to send I'm okay messages to people when you're out in the bush.

    What I have (or at least the previous version); hopefully I'll never need to know how good it is.

    Thanks for the info keg. I'll have to check them out. Will be handy as for work now I have a 10 hour drive North to a mine site. The road up there is awfully quiet.

    Thanks for taking the time to make and share the videos. I found them very informative.

    I think I'll scope out some crown land this year.

    Thanks PineMartyn, I'll be spending most of the summer up in Canada and this will be quite useful.

    Hey PineMartyn.
    I sat down and watched everything you put out on YouTube and I will continue to follow you in the future. Thanks for this series. I'm hunting for a site as we speak.
