Rescue Beacons

I came across this article by Jessi Loerch of the "Washington Times Herald Writer" about rescue beacons.  Worth your consideration.

"Lisa Jo Frech was five days into a 10-day, 170-mile hike on the Pacific Crest Trail near Glacier Peak when she passed out. She’s an experienced hiker, had trained hard for the trail and was feeling strong up to that point.
Oh, well, she figured, sometimes people faint."
Lisa's condition deteriorates.
