Rinos in the Nebraska Sandhills
The Sandhills are so remote that they don’t even qualify as “flyover country” — only once during our four-day trip did we even see cross-country jet contrails. That’s not an insult, but a compliment — this area is stunningly untamed and undeveloped. In this part of the world, there are no cellphones, no power lines, and few roads — perfect country to use Rinos to keep tabs on one another.
We’d carefully mark our vehicle each time before setting out so we’d know how to get back — it’s extremely easy to get turned around in this rolling country. The Rino’s FRS/GMRS radio allowed us to communicate at great distances and the position reporting feature let us “see” where our hunting companions were at all times — an invaluable safety feature. Maximum range on these units is 14 miles, so staying in touch wasn’t a problem.
At the end of the day, we could download our tracks and waypoints to see where we’d been… and how much we walked! On one day alone, we trekked over 10 miles (much of them vertical) in loose sand. Needless to say, we were happy to see the cabin at the end of the day!
