Here are a few photos from recent training I conducted with some LEO personnel out in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  

Frost on the land during the early dawn.

Rope corral set up for a knot tying and basic rappel / climbing anchor class.

The HPG Shepherd Stove in my SO-6 sure was nice to ward off the cold and condensation in the wee hours.

Improvised vehicle recovery technique: The Flip-Flop Winch.

Layout of example options for a minimal equipment vehicle recovery class.

If you drive a truck off road classes like the one your providing can provide a nice safety margin for when things go wrong!! Good on you brother.

Thanks for the props!  Yep, quite a few of the guys I was teaching had never used some of this equipment.

Edward Curtis Canyon De Chelly
When humans first set foot in a new continent, they came in small groups under their own power, bringing only the gear they needed. Most simply called themselves The People. Over time, those who chose the rougher freer life of the up country came to think of themselves as the Hill People.
