"My Sat Phone Saved Me from Freezing to Death" - SPS True Stories
Apr 16, 2019
On March 16, 2019, I lost control of my pickup truck while traveling on a very rural northern Ontario road. I slid my truck into the ditch.
Being over 1.5 hours from the closest town and no cell phone reception, I was very glad that I had my satellite phone and that I maintained minutes on it for emergencies. I was able to call for a tow truck right away and within a couple of hours, I was able to resume my drive.
If anyone thinks, "I'm not going to need it, I'll be fine." they probably need it even more. Without the phone, I would have been left alone outside in the freezing cold for at least 5 hours while waiting for a tow truck to hopefully come and pull me out of the ditch.
