Spinner! I remember her being escorted out.

No alien attacks in mocks! or drunks, explosives, or undiagnosed psychiatric disorders. The last part there was one of the best directives in the last mock scenario.

Well Doc, if you're gonna knock out every latent psych case, where do you expect to find any cavers left for the mock? no one I know, including myself and the kiwi, would qualify :tonguecheek:

Psychotic rescuers are okay, maybe even good. Who else will do it? Just not mock patients with dynamite up their sleeves. :omg:

I don't know. I'm pretty sure we don't want rescuers with flare guns in their packs either.

Haven't gotten it on rope yet (soon, really). but did get caving this weekend to a couple caves, including a short (20m) vertical pit. used my microrack. everyone else here is using 8s, so the micro got some interest. DID get to use my new pantin, so far so good!
also actually got to see a couple people frogging with the pompe 2:1 MA setup. didn't get to discuss it much with the language barrier though. used my pit rope, as the stuff they brought looked/felt to be dynamic (again, language issues so not really sure) and the rigging was different, though fundamentally safe. Brief props to the sten- realized when I went to charge my battery that I couldn't find the charger (left in US?). residual charge still got me through 2 caves w/ extra boost still aparent on turbo.
