everyone might feel better if you carry a PLB or SPOT.

PLB is for you. SPOT has a PLB function but I find it benefits the family back at home and reassures them that all is well.

Nevertheless using SPOT has its own share of responsibilities and onuses on you the tripper.

It took me a while to realize that while I was fine on my 70 days a year of solo, the family did not know that. And in that respect I was really being selfish.

Some communication with them at periodic intervals during the trip really helped be it SAT phone or SPOT.
