Borrow a Practice Beacon Sunday

Since I'm starting to take this backcountry thing seriously I decided to buck up and buy a beacon so I don't have to rent.

Now I have a nice shiny new beacon but nothing to find; it's kinds like getting a fancy new computer without any software. You can turn it on, you can turn it off, but that's about all.

Anyone have an old practice beacon that I can borrow in the Boulder/Longmont area? I'm thinking about heading up to IPW or RMNP on Sunday to get some skinning miles in and would like to play around with the beacon while I'm out there. Will leave cash deposit.

Open to anyone who wants to tag along for a little beacon practice and some mild turns if we can find em.

you're on the right track, another option though it takes a little more time is visit a beacon park (most mountains have one, or at least an area you can set one up) where the beacons are strategically placed to give you the best, most realistic experience possible.
