Charlie, Clint, Hank--thanks for leading the leadership workshop, I got a lot of great tips and a bit of nostalgia from my rescue days during the patient carry out. Clint asked for any comments and I've only have one--having a litter for the rescue made the rescue easier than it would be if one were trying to carry out a person with out SAR rescue--so perhaps next time try it with out a pre-made litter--that is if the SAR team is willing to let us beat up on the practice dummy...

Thanks instructors. This was completely worthwhile. The scenarios were especially instructive: even the issues of excessive engineering and fuzzy leadership and communication were things that always need to be addressed. I am especially glad we got to take a litter through a canyon. And I hope never to have to do it for real.

If anyone has additional questions about the Canyon Leadership Awareness and Rescue workshop you can email this week or find me at the Amphitheater Campground, site #25 next week. Either show up there at 0800 Saturday morning or down at the bridge crossing Portland Creek. We will be getting underway by 0900. See you there.
