About Me

I've been a cyclist my entire life, but started mt biking in 1992 when I bought a used Schwinn KOM from a friend. I started riding the ski trails, 2-track & fire roads of Northern Wisconsin on my mtb & the mt tandem that my husband, Scott & I bought. Once CAMBA started building singletrack, we were in heaven.

Helicopter companies (like FFL) are 3rd parties to SAR, but donate tons of free flight time to assist in…
Wow... thanks for sharing your experience! I'm glad that you have the opportunity to learn from it and help others also. I have never been sorry for carrying stuff I didn't need, but have been sorry for not having stuff I needed! Butterfly bandages or steri-strips are invaluable for closing a serious laceration; I carry…
I do the same thing, Greg... I print a copy of my card for every backpack I own :-)
