    My dog Blizzard because he apparently has an internal GPS and leads me home or back where we started on command.

    If I was truely lost I'd want my "Satelite Phone"

    If I was lost on purpose my choice would be different.
    1. If it's in your kit and you don't know how to use it....It's useless.
    2. If you can't reach your kit when you need it....Its useless.

    I guess it would depend on where I got lost but a topo map would probably right up there.

    I suppose her idea of "Roughing it" is having to pick up the phone to call "Room service"?

    Through out the history of man we have been constantly improving the tools that help us survive. I would rather use a knife made of good steel then one made of stone. If I were truely lost I would want something that would get me out of that situation as fast as posible. In a life or death survival situation I cant think of anything that can get you get you found faster then a Sat phone. The whole point to survival skills and equipment is to get you out of the survival situation as fast as possible in the best physicle, mental and emotional health as possible. I think that people confuse survival skills and bushcraft skills. Bushcraft is the ability to live in the wild and survival is the ability to get out of the wild.

    "Dude, we are so lost."
    "For sure. We must be miles from anywhere."
    "Now what are we going to do? We could die out here."
    "No way. (rummages through back pack and pulls something out).
    "Sat phone! Sweet!"
    (punching numbers on phone) "Domino's? Yeah, I'd like a large pepperoni pizza for delivery."
    "That's awesome. We'll just catch a ride back with the delivery guy AND have pizza."
    "Always be prepared, man."
