Last week we went on an orientation hike up Mt. Seymour. It was a beautiful night, and I was glad to get outside. We traveled along the main trail up the West side of Seymour to the Suicide Gully access points – where many skiiers, snowboarder, hikers, and snowshoers end up. It starts out very gentle, however, it ends in very steep terrain and a large waterfall. We then went to the East to look at Brockton Point and our escape trail designed to lead lost snowboarders/skiers out. Great hike and took about 3 hours.
Last Tuesday we did an orientation and review of equipment at our Bone Creek SAR Station near Rice Lake. We then had a lecture on effective leadership and how it applies in a SAR setting.
