I'm Abigail Scott, an author, adventurer, and mother of three. When I'm not navigating the beautiful chaos of motherhood, you can find me tackling the turbulent waters as a professional whitewater kayaker or scaling impressive rock faces as a climbing guide. The rush of adrenaline, whether from kayaking or climbing, is a feeling I cherish deeply. But the thrill doesn't stop there; I capture the breathtaking allure of nature through my lens as a professional photographer. And when I'm not submerged in the wild, my software engineering skills amplify my outdoor pursuits, allowing me to harness technology in unique ways. Through my writings, whether articles or blog posts, I share not just my adventures but my heart, hoping to spark a flame of inspiration in others to break boundaries and experience the world's wonders.

It is a waterproof radio that provides clear point-to-point communication, with superior reception, transmission, and sound quality. The GXT1000VP4 meets the jis-4 standard of exposure to water, meaning it’s protected against light rain or splashing water from all directions on the radio.

The GXT1000VP4 has dual power options - 1 rechargeable battery Pack per radio (included) or 4 “AA” alkaline batteries per radio (not included). The rechargeable battery packs take 12 hours to charge and provide up to 11 hours of battery life on a full charge. The weather scan feature finds the nearest NOAA broadcast to stay up to date with the latest weather and hazard information. The NOAA Weather Alert feature sounds an alarm indicating when severe weather could be present in your area.
