A little whisper...

A magnificent photo taken in Nepal that has absolutely nothing

My latest email from Cradle Mountain was asking for the name of the supplier in Melbourne. They are going ahead and ordering one with the primary aim of rescuing the "lightly wounded" from the tracks in the vicinity.

More severely injured hikers - ones that have to be prone as they are brought out - will still require the traditional approach, unless or until a new design comes to include the necessary adjustments. See the comment stream in the previous post for more about this.

Rangers at Cradle Mountain are assessing tracks to see which are suited, in between rescues, for disabled visitors and their sherpas.

I wanted a picture for this post, showing a rescue being undertaken with a TrailRider. I had heard at some point that this use was now common around Vancouver. Try as I might I could not find one - maybe a reader can help? I've borrowed a picture from the British Columbia Mobile Opportunity Society's Facebook page that is simply the most amazing TrailRider photo I've ever seen. If you're a Facie I encourage you to like their page.

Watch this space for the announcement of the Tasmanian launch.
