Know what this is?
Well, yes it is a coach's whistle, but it is far more.
It could be a life saver.
How? If you keep one of these on a lanyard around your neck, you have a way to signal somebody if you aren't in plain view. Like if you have run off the road into a thicket, or tumbled down an embankment.
Not pleasant to think about, but it could happen. And if it does, it could be vital to your survival.
That little item can give a loud-and-clear signal with even a light breath. Even if you can't speak or holler.
It works for hiking and bicycling, too. I have carried one for several years now. Fortunately, I have never had to use it.
And that's not just whistling Dixie.
