As discussed in earlier threads, just remember to stick 'em on or in something least unlikely to get separated from your body. Put them on/in boots, jackets, etc. Do not
put them in packs, onto skis, etc...
FWIW - supposedly the first thing Mammoth patrol did yesterday was a transceiver and Recco search.
