Winter Trips?

Cannon, you have any exciting trips planned this winter? The BIg Bend trip was a great read. Always nice to see a ride report to keep the spirits up. Excited to see things develope for a Colorado trip. Thanks again for all you do for us!

naw. I'll just have you carry a spare battery for me

besides, you can bump start with a Rekluse I'm pretty sure.

as for me, I will be looking for a lower effort clutch slave cylinder.

Yup. More of a pull start than a bump. You need the wheel rolling to get the Rekluse to engage.

I learned this afternoon that our local Community College offers a Wilderness First Aid course! Woot!

And, the instructor is one of the EMTs/Paras (not sure which) here at the hospital. Since I'm still at work at 19:00, I may yet speak with her this evening (disaster drill in progress).

I need to get to work on something for the winter. I'm itching to go somewhere already. Been working on some other stuff that has been taking a lot of time. Lots of irons in the fire.

Wisconsin Good Samaritan Law
895.48 Civil liability exemption; emergency medical care.

Any person who renders emergency care at the scene of any emergency or accident in good faith shall be immune from civil liability for his or her acts or omissions in rendering such emergency care. This immunity does not extend when employees trained in health care or health care professionals render emergency care for compensation and within the scope of their usual and customary employment or practice at a hospital or other institution equipped with hospital facilities, at the scene of any emergency or accident, enroute to a hospital or other institution equipped with hospital facilities or at a physician's office.

-Does not protect you from gross negligence.

-Emergency care by a lay person involves "initial evaluation and immediate assistance, treatment, and intervention rendered during the period before care could be transferred to professional medical personnel".

-Abandonment can be an issue. If you render aid and then walk off or transfer responsibility to someone less trained, there can be an issue.

-If you have training, must operate according to your training.

For those taking long trips, it is a good idea to make sure that tetanus booster is reasonably up to date. A large or really dirty wound can present problems even if a guy had shot five years ago (booster standard is 10 years).

If you go for a tetanus shot after the fact, it needs to be done within 72 hours to be effective. Someone might not seek or get to this until it is too late.

I made a note to call and check on my own status.

I've been thinking about running an NWAT trek over two separate weekends to give some people a crack at it that might not be able to devote a four day run all at once. Maybe do one weekend in May and another in June or something like that. Go up on a Friday night and return home on a Sunday night. Basically split it into two loops.

I've hosted some day rides like this and it has worked well.

Let me know if this would interest you. Maybe I can put something together that takes care of some people in this fashion.

I'd be among the "all at once" gang. Splitting it means two long drives for me; twice the gas money. Mrs. B. and I are imposing our own "austerity" plan, so that doesn't fit. Of course, *real* austerity would mean selling the bikes and not driving there at all...

Nah. I may be fiscally conservative but I'm not a skinflint!

Papa,

You act as though you have actual, you know, experience in that area.

Are you fully recovered yet? It's been three months.
