Post trip thoughts:
The InReach Mini did it's job of giving my wife peace of mind with daily check-ins and 1 hr updates when we were moving. Will use on future trips. Will write a separate review.

Used VHF for weather, as usual, will continue to carry that when paddling for weather and safety.

Didn't use the SJCam (GoPro type camera) at all. Got tired of messing around with the setup on the canoe the first day and just packed it away! Decided it's not what I was there for. Will stick with the DSLR and still pics when paddling, but may carry this at a light weight alternative for backpacking.

Brought the phone to connect with the SJCam and/or InReach, but didn't use it. Likely won't bring in the future.
