I'm with u I want to b unplugged as much as possible,but I need to let loved ones know I'm safe and having fun ,and hopefully I won't need it but just in case It's the next trip gone bad storey,I can call for help! And in those back areas u need a full charge to get it out some times.I'm the type of person that would rather have it and not need it , than need it and not have it. Kinda like that new show I just mentioned,all had taken precautions but didn't have it on them the moment their disaster happen.
