This week I re certified my first aid training. Monday evening I attended the first of two four hour Mountain First Aid classes. That evening we reviewed the fine points of patient examination and spinal precautions. Thursday evening we had a variety of role playing situations plus a written test. While it is not the most exciting material, it was good to revisit this important skill that I hope I'll never have to use.
In October 2006 I took the plunge and applied for the Mazamas Climb Leadership Development Program. In December I learned that I had been accepted. The inspiration for this blog is to share with you my progress along this path.
The content of this blog will not be limited to that endeavor, since there are other aspects of my life.
