    Why so early?
    You really think you'll be taxing SAR and wind up in the hospital if you stick to safe stuff and away from people at the trailhead?
    No longer stuck.

    Those are two really big assumptions that may or may not be reasonable depending on where you live.

    Nobody can make this decision for you, but good bump galibier. Some of our gear has been sitting idle for a bit already and I hadn't thought of pulling batteries yet.

    @1000-oaks' original post was a good reminder to bump for the season - leaking batteries & all that.

    I should have left the passing comment out - a comment best left for all of the countless threads popping up on Corona.

    I'm waiting for Easter to see if I should remove my batteries.

    Do you guys put the skin savers on before putting them in the freezer? To be honest I've never used skin savers

    No skin savers, just fold them glue-to-glue. No freezer, just keep them room temp or lower. Mine last as long as anyone's.

    In Seattle, to be honest, most of my friends use their skins all summer, though they might take the batteries out of their beacons for a few months.

    Using the freezer to draw some moisture out of your skin glue seems like a fine idea, but make sure you put them in a sealed bag/container. Should probably go without saying, but not just in there with food.

    Ideally seal them in on a cool/dry day. If you come back in a month and there are ice crystals inside that means it's working. If there's a lot, shake em out and continue.

    Makes sense, thanks
