21 miles? I'd keep a lightweight tent and sleeping bag in the RMAX and wait for my wife to report me missingI archery hunt antelope over water. the water holes I hunt are 21 miles from our trucks. My biggest fear is my ATV breaking down. That would be a brutal walk, no cell service, over lava rocks and 100 degree weather.
We just about got stranded in Arkansas with absolutely NO service and over 10 miles back in. We are going to buy an inreach satellite phone from Garmin. They’re not to pricey and the monthly service bills are very reasonable. We do a lot of highway traveling and boating with sketchy cell service so decided this little life saver will go everywhere with us.Just curious to hear from those who have ever been out riding alone, and had a catastrophic machine breakdown. Did you have to walkout? How far? Daytime, nightime? How'd you secure your machine that you left behind? How'd you get your machine back to home base?
Luckily, I've never had this happen to me, but I look forward to useful comments/suggestions in case I ever do breakdown.
