Although this is not mentioned, I also think it is a good idea to have an active Gotenna Mesh when taking trips to the wilderness. Even if you are out there alone. Not only is there the possibility of contacting others with Gotennas in the event an emergency. It also helps to build networks in places where there is typically no cell service to fall back on.
For instance, even if a mere 10 (plus or minus) people had active Gotenna Mesh units at various dispersed locations in the Tuolumne Meadows area of Yosemite National Park, coverage of the area would be quite good. Particularly if someone had an active Gotenna at a high point such as Lembert Dome or (especially) Mount Dana.
