goTenna Off-Grid Text & GPS


All my close friends, and even some of you virtual friends will probably laugh out loud to think of Learning Rebels being off the grid…and you would be correct. 

I am not an “off the grid” kinda gal. Unless you count being at a resort where off the grid means going to the swim up bar. However, I do know of people who go off the grid with their family and friends – and they use this. Consider being in hike and you want to communicate with your peeps about where to meet up later for taco’s. Let’s say you’ve fallen and you can’t get up…help can be notified.

Perhaps you are skiing and you get separated from the group – you are going to hit the lodge for hot toddies but you don’t want the crowd to become concerned. A full range of possibilities here, if you, your friends and family are adventurous – this is a travel must have.
