Backcountry Wilderness Registry

$5,000 goal

Campaign created 11 months ago
There are too many stories of wilderness fatalities, lost hikers, and uninformed search and rescue volunteers.  As someone who often ventures into the backcountry alone, I wanted a way to not only provide valuable information on my plans, but also raise a red flag if I did not return when planned.  As a result, I began development of http://www.backcountry-register.com.

The website has served me well as a resource for my family to keep track of my plans when I'm out alone.

Backcountry Register does the following:

1.  Provides a place to post your backcountry plans
2.  You may choose to make your plans public or private
3.  All plans generate a specific code that can be used to retrieve them
4.  Email alerts are sent to designated people if you do check-in within a time period you decide
5.  Website is completely free of charge
6.  You may share you plans to friends on social media

Funding this website will do the following:

1.  Allow mailing of free postcards to display your backcountry code in your windshield at the trailhead so search and rescue has easy access to your plans.
2.  Allow advertising to promote the service
3.  Allow upgrades to infrastructure as needed to support increased traffic.
4.  Allow for filing for incorporation, 501c3 status, and accounting fees.

If this service catches on, it WILL save lives.  It would mean so much to get this promoted in order to make a difference in the outdoor community I cherish so deeply.
