After much debate, pontificating and research my latest tool for the trip has just arrived!
I finally decided to purchase a Garmin InReach Explorer+ for the trip to Mongolia and back. It’s quite an initial investment which is then followed by considerable outlay for the satellite and SOS package but, my wife will be able to relax knowing I’ll have SOS support should I need it and she’ll be able to track my whereabouts 24/7. (And there I was thinking I’d escape for 6 months!)
I’ll write a more detailed article about setting up the device and purchasing the satellite package in the next few weeks.
