yeah, what i'd like to do is start a topic of discussion where people can post "dry run" scenarios, and gear required to practice their techniques
and ideas in a controlled environment, and without the stress of actually having to do these things to make it.
maybe include stuff like
- time of year
- gear required
- then outline techniques/strategies needed, include links to other threads if necessary
i like the idea of the B.O.B. or "go bag" as i've also seen it called...i wanna start my own, but i'm thinking that where i live vs. where other
users are at, might be a bit different...
i'm gonna start writing and editing on a word doc now, and when i get to 20 posts, i'll start a new topic...share what i know, and hopefully get
some feedback/advice for any other "newbies" to the game...
btw i was a lifeguard/EMT, took wilderness emergency medicine, and while i was a lifeguard, we did a lot of "red hat" drills, making them as
realistic as possible, makeup, actors, the works...then we'd use the CPR dummies for actually doing any resuscitation, etc...if anyone is interested
in working out some detailed scenarios, don't hesitate to PM or email me!
