  4. first started in the fire service: 17 " " " EMS: 23 " became a paramedic: 26 " " " ski patrol: 49 (wow - I missed a lot!) first realized that politics influence life: that's a constant process. quit being a kid at heart: not yet
  5. Here's a link to some videos from our playground in them thar hills They're a bit slow to load, so be patient. Big kid in the gray coat in the 'copper' video is ours Cheers! http://www.skilookout.com/new/video.php
  6. OK... with 18000+ members on board, surely there has to be more than a handful of ski-patrol types here... granted, I haven't posted in awhile either, but I've been busy.. SKIING! Season has been awesome so far. Great snow, lots of it, lots of happy people (700 more season passes sold vs. last year!) Terrain accessible from new 3rd chairlift is steep, deep, and getting rave reviews! It's going to be a challenge to get a sled down a couple of them. Only a couple 'major' injuries so far this year that I'm aware of. One anterior hip fx/dislocation, and a (verified later) unstable c-spine
  7. No back injuries of note (knock on wood), but I did pop an inguinal hernia! October 4th, 1986 - I only remember because it hurt so much! :-({|= Adult male mental patient from the regional psych. hospital, at least 275 lbs., faking CP for the MS. Remember, this was mid 80's (dark ages), when we actually had to lift stretcher and patient from the ground (landing gear retracted) into the back of the bus. Ouch! Felt a little 'pop' 'down there', self-exam in the the ER revealed the bulge, 6 days later took the surgical cure. Ahhh, the good old days! Cheers! Paul
  8. You're welcome - but you already knew that Good day yesterday - no major boo-boos, just a couple snowmobile courtesy rides, blue sky, sunshine, happy people. Had to tell a couple snowboarders to slow down, but that's nothing new. The new skis rock! The top shack remodel is all but complete - twice as big, and a deck out back! Gonna be a good season... ski safe! Cheers!
  9. Hey, bum - can you post or ship me the link to that YouTube? That's one I'd like to keep. Thanks!
  10. Okay... expanding on the opening salvo a bit... This will only be my second season as an alpine patroller, after having been an EMT since 1979 and a paramedic since 1982. I've been skiing since i was 14. I kick myself frequently for not doing this sooner, but kids, scheduling, and other stuff always seemed to get in the way. It's been good for me being able to refresh my BLS skills, using different equipment than I'm accustomed to, and improvising in ways i haven't had to before. Skiing for free ain't half bad, either I'd be interested to hear how your hill does patrol scheduling, how
  11. HEY! Moderators! How about putting this topic back where I had it in the first place, in "off the road:??? It is off-the road... and it is pre-hospital medicine... not just 'meet & greet'! Reconsideration, please?
  12. I'm an ALS provider in my real job, but the ski patrol is a BLS organization. Lookout Pass, Idaho (ID/MT border on I-90) http://www.skilookout.com Cheers!
  13. Any other ski patrol folks out there? BLS or ALS? Snow is coming, thought I'd fire up the subject... Cheers!
  14. 1. Two antennas met on a roof, fell in love and got married. The ceremony wasn't much, but the reception was excellent. 2. A jumper cable walks into a bar. The bartender says, "I'll serve you, but don't start anything." 3. Two peanuts walk into a bar, and one was a salted. 4. A dyslexic man walks into a bra. 5. A man walks into a bar with a slab of asphalt under his arm and says: "A beer please, and one for the road." 6. Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says to the other: "Does this taste funny to you?" 7. "Doc, I can't stop singing 'The Green, Green Grass of Home.
