3 years ago this week NSR received tragic news that one of our members, Johannes Mullegger, had fallen into a crevasse and died on a recreational ski trip. I want to recognize the contributions Hannes made to NSR in his time on the team and take a moment to remember him.
In recognition of Hannes we named our Blazer – North Shore 5 after him, however, since that Blazer has recently been sold, our new North Shore 5, a Jeep Rubicon, will now bear Hannes’ nickname – “The Mule-legger”, so named for his physical strength and his character.
Hannes was a model search and rescue member, dedicated, fit and always willing to do the tough job. It was a pleasure working with him.
