I don't think it matters. However, what if your family or relatives can't find where you kept it? Why would you not keep it on you? It can't be to save weight is it?
I always kept mine on my dashboard, with emergency contacts listed on the back of it. And I tell my partners I have one and where it is located. If I'm riding with friends, I will keep it in their vehicle. I don't carry it with me on the mountain because if I have an accident, and my body is not found right away my contacts are still available to those that need to make the call.
I first got my CORSAR card 5 years ago when a member of the group I was with died on the Needle. She had an expired card, I believe. The whole ordeal inspired me to get one, and it just expired. I'll be renewing this weekend.
Good post, Britt.
