Charging the Garmin

Charging the Garmin – We all know what this means… Copyright © 2021 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.

We all know what this means1 … When I’m out in the wilderness only two people can contact me via my InReach Mini. Ginger and the Bishop’s Executive Assistant, Emily. Everyone else can wait until I’m back in cell phone range. I guess we need to re-think that for when Ginger comes backpacking with me.

I’m working in Kansas City tomorrow (Saturday), but I think I’ll call in some comp time plus a half-day I was supposed to take a couple of weeks ago, but didn’t, and head off Sunday for a couple of nights in Hercules Glades. It’s going to rain heavily tomorrow and maybe Sunday too. The temps should be reasonable, but the trails are still too overgrown for my liking, so I’m just going to go and sit in the woods for a couple of days.

1This is my Garmin InReach Mini satellite communicator. Ginger can use it to contact me and find out where I am, anywhere on the planet. I can use it to send text messages and call for help if I’m unable to self-rescue following an accident or medical emergency.
