Ah but you do own the gear wolfie. That is my point. 99% of the people who don't also haven't put the time into learning. There isn't an avalanche I out there worth taking that doesn't require you have the gear in some fashion.

I tour alone frequently in the winter. I still bring my basic gear regardless. If I get buried, yeah that is going to such and I'll probably die. At the very least when rescuer's come to find me, a transmitting beacon will make their job easier, exposing them to less danger. The more likely scenario is that I'll come upon a rescue situation where by having the gear I can assist.
