Hopelessly Lost

That is what the Governments in the border file might be.

But not you if you take my advice.

My wife won a Global Star GPS Locator in a contest but we have no use for it.

Spot is a satellite messenger service that
  • "acquires your location from the GPS network and routes it along with the HELP message through the SPOT satellite network every five minutes for one hour or until cancelled. Your contacts will receive an SMS text message including coordinates, or an email with a link to Google Maps™ showing your location."

For skiers, hunters, fishermen, hikers, "lone workers" and those who might be out of cell phone range, this is a terrific safety tool. For more information, please check out their website:

If you are interested in the device, please drop me a line at

Note that you have to subscribe to their satellite service as well as buy the device.
