One of the 'perks' of being in AirOps is, we are role players for a leadership training class. We get it all set up in a deep canyon---the students really have no idea what they're in for. It makes for a late night but it's pretty fun watching them deal with us and try to organize some kind of search. Last night a bunch of them were from New York ladder companies---just like 'rescue me'. I don't think some of these guys had ever seen a tree or been alone in an overgrown canyon before. One guy turned white when he saw a big spider. I'd probably be equally uncomfortable running through the Bronx at night, I suppose. That's Bobby dressed as a Sandanista. We were both caught in a landslide.
