IT’S BEEN EPIC........(and still not finished!). Avalanche Risk Management Level 5, Otago Polytechnic, Wanaka, NZ.
Almost there, not by brains, beauty or enthusiasm....but digging fxxx’n deep (literally and metaphorically) to persist in the face of LOTS of challenges.
Some cautionary optimism on the journey as I pass a transceiver test on the weekend. (Previously failed).
Can’t thank Adam West enough for sharing his knowledge and a generosity of spirit that has helped restore my confidence to press on, not only to find transceiver burials (aka victims) but to FINISH this course.....watch this space!
Truly, if you wanna get a bit more snow savvy for Oz and OS then his weekend courses are invaluable part of your snow journey. www.snowsafety.com.au
Moral to this story; PERSIST....even when you wanna quit and find good people to help you. (note to self).
PS...If you’re in an avalanche, slough, terrain trap then you would want me with you. Just saying. But I would not be taking you there in the first place....
