What happens when an adventure ride is going well and feeling great, until it’s not? When a mishap, medical issue or an off changes everything and you think you might need help? Have you ever wondered what constitutes an emergency, and when it’s okay to push the button on your satellite communicator? Mosko Moto’s Pete Day and Ashley Myhre found themselves in that situation on a weekend trip in the Oregon desert a few years ago. When broken bones and an attempt to get themselves out of their remote location didn’t work out, they were left with a decision to make. And to help us better understand when to send out an SOS signal, we spoke with Emily Thompson at GEOS, the people on the other end who answer your call for help and co-ordinate remote rescues around the world.
