SAT phones

     Satellite phones, or SAT phones, can place a call from any spot, no matter how remote, on the earth.
     My dear husband needs one of those–give him five minutes, and he has hit a wilderness trail!  He is off with Jake, taking him on a “coming of age” 12th birthday trek through the Sangre de Christi mountains.
     I made him get a SAT phone, or something like it, so as to be able to call a ranger or emergency help, if one of them gets injured.
     I do not know whether to be excited and proud of them, or terrified!
     Regardless, I will spend the week at home with the girls painting, gardening, going through photographs, preparing for homeschooling, and writing.  I love times like these!
