My name is Peter Trabucco and I am a high functioning wheelchair-bound quadriplegic. This summer I am planning to drive my 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser from Mexico to Canada on a route that is about 90% dirt roads - something no other disabled person has attempted.  My Fj is already equipped quite well - ARB bumper, Warn winch, Old Man Emu suspension, Hella driving and fog lights, BF Goodrich 285/75/17 tires. One of the items that I don't have is a Personal Locator Beacon.  I will be in very remote wilderness areas for much of the trip and a PLB will be essential to ensuring my safety     

Congratulations Peter! Looks like you made it!

Hi everyone  at PLB Rentals. We used your PLBs on all six of  our crew members on three different boats for Team Marleys in the "Tybee 500". The wives and mothers were able to have peace of mind while we sailed the 500 mile race from Key Largo, FL to Tybee, GA. As you can imagine we sailed in many different weather, wave, and wind conditions. Sometimes a pretty good distance off shore and we did have one boat lose its rig during the rounding of Cape Canaveral. fortunately we did not have to use your PLBs for rescue, but it was nice to know they were there if the the situation would have arisen.

Thanks Again from Team Marleys

From our friend Leon C. Nelson,

"Many thanks for your kind generosity in providing Team-TarpMan a TerraFix ACR PLB for possible use during our epic expedition this past week on the Continental Divide Trail in the Wind River Range of Wyoming."

"As you can see from the photo, we were in very, very scenic country, and the peace of mind afforded us by the TerraFix was much appreciated!"

"I'll be returning the device to you via mail tomorrow, with Huge Thanks from the entire team! You can be certain we're pleased we didn't have to use it!!!"

"PLB RENTALS, LLC PROVIDED TEAM-TARPMAN WITH A TERRAFIX ACR 406 PERSONAL LOCATOR BEACON. This PLB is pictured (right) with the East Fork River of the Wyoming's Wind River Range in the background. The recently re-designed TerraFix is now very compact and has a GPS feature that permits added location-accuracy in the event of a need for Search and Rescue."

From Ron in Ypsilanti, Michigan
Pictures from the French River Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada

" My trip is complete and the PLB is in the mail.  I appreciate the service you provide to wilderness travelers (my wife does as well).  A friend and I completed a week canoeing the French River in Ontario.  Having a PLB with us provided an increased level of security, particularly when we encountered a potentially dangerous reptile (the rattlesnake was released unharmed).  We shared campfires a few nights with other travelers and I took the opportunity to explain the operation and benefits of the PLB system.  No one was aware of the availability of these devices.  Hopefully the word will spread.  Thanks again.

"Just wanted to say THANKS! for getting that PLB to me so quickly! (My wife wouldn't let me go on a solo camping trip without it!) You guys offer a great service which will probably save hundreds if not thousands of lives.  Thanks again!"

Thru Hike of the Pacific Crest Trail

"My name is Ian Carbone.  I will be hiking 2,655 miles from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail beginning April 25th this year.  I cannot afford my own PLB, though I would love to have one on my hike for safety considerations and piece of mind.  I'd be happy to promote your services/website to the 500+ hikers at the PCT kick off gathering to the hikers outdoor recreationalists I meet along my 5 month journey."

PLB Rentals, LLC is pleased to provide Ian a complementary rental for the duration of his adventure.
