Awesome shovel, and I love having the probe built into the handle making for one less thing to find a place for in the pack.
Tracker DTS Beacon
Beacons are a must. If you are wondering which one to purchase, don't hesitatethe Tracker DTS is a no-brainer in all areas. Only complaint is that if you have a small to large beer gut it takes a bit of time practicing where to put it. However, it does seem to curve for this reason.
Secrets in the Wallowa Mountains
My probe and shovel were used only for practice rescues in the Wallowa Mt. range in Oregon. The rest of the time we skied our butts off. However, on our last night of the trip, we went out for a midnight ski. We built a bonfire, told secrets to each other about ourselves, and howled at the moon every so often. (the whisky definitely helped loosen the vocal chords) Boady, our fuzzy friend, howled, too. To contain the fire at the beginning, we used our shovels to dig a pit. My shovel worked just fine!!! Thanks for a wonderful product.
Nice probe and I like how it fits inside the shovel. Only complaint is that the shovel handle is a "T" and not a "D" for comfort.
