    Learned a lot about how to get people out of bad situations. Lots of practice now to ingrain it in my skill set.

    I could have sworn I was on the attending list for this workshop. This is the second event that I've signed up for and have had washed out... People wonder why I go canyoning solo. Same reason why we breath our own air.

      You were on the roster. Sent you a notice reminding you that payment was due and never heard from you.

    Hi Rich, I signed up and paid thru paypal. Paypal shows the payment as unclaimed whatever that means.

      It is a truly versatile tool! Rich didn't self-advertise, so I'll advertise for him and point you to it at his store, http://canyonsandcrag...­.
