Back in the day guys would just go on feel alone. Night navigation with no flashlight. No problem!! Going on feel alone!!!! Who cares!!! Just keep moving thru the night - look it'll get light soon ya can tell where yended up then. When you can see. Back in the day guy would just be going on feel alone.
As always, thanks for your 'valuable' insight.:rolleyes:

Maybe tuck some spare batteries into the stocking along with any electronic device. A dead GPS is every bit as useful as a dead phone. A GPS doesn't have to be used for routine navigation, but can certainly come in handy when the FUGAWE question arises. They have other uses, too. When I die somebody is going to inherit a gold mine of secret chanterelle beds.

Just wrapping this thread up.

We wound up getting them an ACR locator beacon. It is very simple -- just activate it to summon help. Another factor was that the ACR does not require a GPS subscription. My son also likes it.

Thanks all for your input and PMs. Happy New Year and stay safe.
