The biggest advantage of being a General or Extra would be the access to world-wide HF frequencies. 2m is excellent for local communication, but if the internet should go down, linked repeaters may lose capabilities.

Quite honestly I mainly use 2m and 70cm, but its nice to know that I can reach other states or other countries with HF should the need arise.

That being said, there is nothing wrong with getting a Tech license and a good HT (walkie-talkie) and just have some fun.
