New question for an experienced group...
It never ceases to amaze me how the subject of rope rescue and knots in particular gets the conversation going! Interesting stuff throughout the forum, but I think the eight vs. bowline debate is covered off. I’ll like to ask a different question from an obviously learned group. What are some of the best all around technical rescue conferences available in North America? I hope to attend one or two this upcoming year. I, and my department, are aware of Rigging for Rescue and Ropes That Rescue and can highly recommend either. I was thinking of more of an opportunity to share research, equipment, ideas, etc. at an instructor or higher level. Thanks, and keep up the entertaining writing!
Btw. If you think this should be a new thread, please start it. For some reason I don’t seem to able to.
