  1. Hi, I've been following this blog for a long time. I don't know how this hasn't occurred to me defore this, but I can offer to help as well. I own an adventure company called Wide Aware. The company is relatively new, but I have plenty of able bodied employees as well as the husband and myself, who are trained and competent in dealing with emergencies and rescues. Some one is bound to be willing and available out of our plentiful network of mountaineers and adventure resource staff. It might be worthwhile to keep a link to us in the resources in case there is a situation where trained rescue people can make a difference.

    I'm ok with offering all that we could do to help out in an emergency.
