this artical is about how we should not always depend on certain devices in the wild such as satilite devices. Its about how people are becoming less interested in the bush and taking a chance in the wild and how when people do go on a trip into the wild that alot of people take the risk of using only satilite devices. most satilite devices are one way comunicators, when you travel out into the bush you are on your own. this artical states that people should be practicing the fundimentals such as using a compas, and knowing first aid, and having survival skills.
i recomend this artical to anyone who is going on a hiking trip, canoeing trip, or even just taking a walk in the bush. people need to realize the dangers in the wilderness and how much it costs to call a helicopter in. For 3000 dollars an hour for a helicopter i think its worth it to learn the basics.
