I decided to upgrade my InReach Mini to the Messenger for simpler messaging while out of cell service and I wound up needing it before we even made it home. On the trip home, we were on a forestry road in the Gila National Forest when a creek bank beside the road collapsed and took my trailer down with it. It was just me and my boys and I couldn’t get to any of my recovery gear in the back without putting my rig in danger of following the trailer. The messenger helped me coordinate with the Fish & Game office to get an officer out to our location to help. It would have taken me a lot more than the 4 hours we lost to get the trailer righted and hitched back up if I had to do everything by myself.
