When we were out in WY/UT backcountry a few years ago, my wife really liked it. Personally, I think it's a bit of overkill here in NE if you are a 3 season hiker that frequents well-troddened paths. I typically hike with whistle, compass, sometimes an emergency bivsack (with sleeping bag if potential for cold temps), maybe a 2way walkie talkie and let someone know where I'm going and return time, etc.
    Spots are nice. But the annual fee adds up...
