Renowned motocross champion Ricky Carmichael embarked on his annual summer adventure ride, traversing over 1,100 miles through the remote wilderness of Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and Nevada. Accompanied by a group of close friends, Carmichael relied on the ACR Bivy Stick and its GroupTrack™ feature to maintain seamless communication and keep track of everyone’s location, even in areas without cellular coverage.

Navigating through remote areas across multiple states posed significant communication and safety challenges for Ricky Carmichael and his group. With limited cellular coverage in many of the locations they visited, the team needed a reliable way to stay connected, share their locations, and ensure everyone's safety throughout the adventure ride.

Carmichael equipped himself and his riding companions with ACR Bivy Sticks, compact satellite communication devices that enabled them to send and receive messages, share their locations, and access weather updates, regardless of cellular coverage. The Bivy Stick's GroupTrack™ feature allowed the team to monitor each other's GPS locations, ensuring no one got separated or lost during the journey.

By utilizing the ACR Bivy Stick and its GroupTrack™ feature, Ricky Carmichael and his group were able to stay connected and safe throughout their adventure ride. The ability to communicate via satellite and track each other's locations provided peace of mind and allowed the team to fully immerse themselves in the experience, without worrying about losing contact in remote areas.
