    No, I meant I will give up camping in the afterlife! Quite a few of my dogs are there already - I wonder if they have met up, and get on?

        I've always fancied a Viking funeral ... so should I expire and be discovered quietly decomposing inside my van, it would save a lot of mess, grief, admin, hygiene problems and would sort of meet my wishes half way, if the mourners (if there are any!) could bring some petrol, kerosene, Diesel and kindling with them, knock in a window or two, chuck in the flammables and toss in a match. What a way to go! I will have long departed to another place so it would be of no consequence to me!

            Since my husband died, last November, I opted for a personal alarm wrist band. It summons help (usually medical) if something happens. At first, I was tethered to the house and garden as the system uses a landline phone. I had a fall while out walking the dog, last month (not serious) which made me contact the provider to check on an upgrade. I now have a smart watch,with GPS. It has a red emergency button that transmits the wearer's position. It can be used to call up to 10 contacts, acting as a phone.

            it also tells the time.

                Indeed that's true.

                It's ingrained from the age of 4 or 5 to 15 or 16 so you grow up not questioning.

                Doesn't bother me as I make my own choices but it still lurks there in the background

                  It's dying violently in my bed while away camping which bothers me kernowjon . One reason I am not keen on tents.

                    I like the sound of that watch UkeLady would it be possible to give a bit more info? Have looked online but tend to be designed for children!
                    Although I always have my phone when dog walking etc, that may be easier!

                      I have this one, on a contract with PPP Taking Care 365 days/24 hours per day monitoring for £23 (including VAT) Cheaper if you're VAT exempt. The only problem I foresee is that the battery life is 4 days, only when in standby mode. Pressing the alarm button takes it out of standby. There's a phone app for managing the device. I used to regularly forget to take my mobile phone out walking the dog. This watch acts as a phone, a watch, and an alarm.

                        Thanks for the info UkeLady i will have a look. I have a smart phone and take it when out with dog. I will get my daughter to also look at whether any smart watch might be ok.

                          I have to admit to being quite tech savvy. I've been using computers, in my teaching career and domestically, since the 1980s and mobile phones since the 1990s.
