My goal is to get the ball, ANY ball rolling. For now, please feed me with site or e-mail links to organizations that have experience in this stuff so I can at least make initial contacts and request coordination help. THANKS!
Hi, compadres, from Russ Reina, that firetender guy.
As some of you know, I moved to Ecuador about three years ago. It is what’s now called a “Developing Nation”. Ecuador is about the size of Colorado with a population of about 14,000,000. On April 16th, the coastal area was rocked by a 7.8...
Following the Snake River from Utah all the way into Montana -- especially this time of year -- is one of the most gorgeous and fun (watch them turns Ninja!) Routes in the U.S.! Go to Glacier following Flathead Lake and make sure to get some of their cherries!
AHA guidelines still call for interposing breaths. I recall hearing about studies showing that persistent compressions well done at the rate of 100/minute with all focus on them and no attention to breaths are what works.

It led me on a trail that brought me to some...
Burn it and anything else that had contact with them.
Bedbugs crank out 200 eggs at a sitting. All they have to do is sit in your clothes a couple of minutes and then walk away leaving you a houseful of worries.
Let him die!
That's what we're talking about here, isn't it?
But then again, if you're sober enough to recognize that he WILL die if you do nothing, that means you're sober enough to do something.
If you're sober enough to do something and you stand around (or get crushed by all the...
