Tips for a new sherpa

Postby rickster » Nov 9, 2018 6:50 am

Hello everyone,
I have recently aquired a couple of cave divers and would like to know what makes a good sherpa?

How does one "acquire" cave divers? The main requirement for sherpas is willingness, and ability to carry heavy gear. It helps if they are interested in the project.
Any opinions are personal.

Are you sure they didn't acquire you? :grin:

What Forrest said. Willingness to carry loads. Probably heavy and maybe multiple loads. That's about it!
