“What Would You Do?” Wednesday – That’s Gonna Leave a Mark!

Happy Wednesday!  I'm making a triumphal return to blogging, and as its a Wednesday, I decided to start with a "What Would You Do" Wednesday.  If you're fuzzy on how we play this games, I'll review.  I post a video from the giant, open-source online training tool we call YouTube, and you tell me how …

“What Would You Do?” Wednesday – SCUBA plus Chest Pain = Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines day!  I find people fall into two categories; you either love Valentines Day because you're sentimental, or you feel Valentines Day is a commercial holiday foisted upon society by card companies to increase sales.  I find myself in a third category; I generally work on Valentines Day, and my wife and I have …

“What Would You Do?” Wednesday – Hooked, Line, and Sinker

The New Year is customarily the time of year in which people make resolutions for self-improvement.  One of mine was to blog more regularly.  What I did not count on, however, was how busy January would be.  I spent 10 days in Florida teaching a WFR course, came home for a week, then headed out …

“What Would You Do?” Wednesday – Something Completely Different.

We've been having a good run of #wwydwednesdays lately, but I've noticed a pattern.  The past two have been significant blunt-force trauma.  We had a rappel fall/failure, followed by a patient that was kicked by a horse.  Both were good learning experiences, but it's time to get away from trauma and try something new.  With …

So, What Would You Do? Drop Kicked

I don't get many traditional weekends, but this last Saturday and Sunday were pretty fantastic.  My wife and I got to spend time with friends we haven't seen in a long time, and we even got some rock climbing in too!  So, now that I'm relaxed and refreshed, we can spend some time talking about …
