Sure wish I had a sat phone. the Internet here comes & goes, generally very poor with everyone on it. I wasn't able to get on for most of yesterday & was trying to get flights rearranged.
No, a spike is not considered a shovel. However, if there is another point on that spike it would classify as a shovel.If I remember correctly as long as it has one shovel and a spike on the other side it is considered a double shovel. Congrats on a beautiful caribou!
