    Medical Emergency

    What happened?

     

    I was on a solo adventure motorcycle trip at a location along the Trans America Trail.  It was one of my first nights camping at elevation.  I think I was suffering from mild elevation sickness and fighting a stomach bug at the same time because after eating dinner and making camp I vomited and was starting to feel a fever coming on.  I was just out of cell phone coverage and I didn't feel comfortable riding back to town on the rutted out technical trail I came in on in my condition.  Being solo and not sure how serious my condition was, I did not hesitate to use my ARC PLB to call for help.  I was scared and never felt more alone.  Within 2 hours a local sheriff located me and transported me to the hospital.

    Words of Wisdom

     
    Being a solo self sufficient traveler I was tempted to "tough it out" and try to deal with my situation on my own.  Looking back I am extremely grateful I came to my senses and called for help.  Your life is worth more than your pride.  Can't be a tough guy if you're dead.

    Thank you note to ACR

     

    I'm really glad I had your PLB to save my bacon.  It allows me to mitigate my risk on my solo trips and really enjoy the awesome beauty the less traveled path affords.
