Have you mailed Joanna her CD yet?

Yep, the CDs were mailed last month. Anyone else can check out my photos on line. In future, I'll be sticking with just online photo sharing options I think. Much simpler for everyone, and cheaper (free).

Thanks to the magic of YouTube, I've now uploaded some short videos from the 2007 weeklong. :banana:

Clips include a variety of material, from patient handling...



...to counterbalance lifting...



...to Pat and Tony's dramatic in-cave domestic :shock: (as part of a scenario during the walkthrough). Enjoy! :grin:

Boy pat was giving us hell in that cave. I was on Com & had to move past the pt to the far side of the room just so we could talk on the phones.

I seen the other one you had of LJ giving orders :kewl:
Can't get enough!!

Yeah, I probably deserve some of the blame. :devil: I suggested that scenario, and Pat and Tony did a passionate job of acting it out.

Really Anmar with his twisted mind deserves some of the blame too. He and Julia(?) acted out an almost-identical scenario during an NCRC mock back in 2002. We were just copycats. Fun! :big grin:

Hmm, I don't recall the one in 2002.

But I do remember this mini-mock. Had to reassure a few of the students that the two actually got along in real life. Talk about good acting!

"...I need you to pick a team..." Ops exclaimed, brandishing his pen for emphasis. :chicken:

It was in Knox, I think.

But what do I know? I was stuck outside helping with logistics most of the time. Somebody has to do it right - right? :grin:

You have me at a disadvantage. To quote Gonzales, "I do not recall".

Which mock was it? If it was the "big one" then Brandan was IC and planning, I was ops. I didn't like that position. I felt very powerless not being at the scene.

Isn't this you giving orders (like junkman said)?

Now you have me at a disadvantage. :oops: I didn't hang out with the level 3's, so I don't really know who's who!

If that is you and you were ops, I shall promptly amend my previous post. And if that wasn't you, someone else can claim the fame.

Darn, caught on video. That was me. Can I still stick to my story, "I do not recall". It apperas to work for the politicians.

Really, thanks for the link. I also enjoyed the one above with Brandan.

It was, but that's why I'm confused. I rescued Julie... she was in a tight passage and alone. We did the Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers shuffle. (I was Ginger Rogers since I did everything she did but backwards (and considering the crack we were in, felt like high heels.))

Hmmm, my bad. :oops: It might have been Anmar and Amanda I'm thinking of. Definitely Anmar though.

Now we'll have to come up with some new scenario twists. :devil: Perhaps multiple-personality patients ?

Well of course she does. :-)

Seriously, if I had the names of the patients in front of me, I could tell you who was where. I do know they had to swap out one of the patients due to an asthma attack (for real).

Hmm, I think the next mock should incorporate an alien attack!
