Wow - sounds AWESOME!!!! Have a GREAT time - I know you will - I am reading the Emerald Mile right now - CRAZY!!!! Before I step off this ride of life I WILL do a River trip. Dumb question here as I am only about 1/3 of the way thru the book - I am going to end up in the water at some point right? Those rapids just seem impassable for some of them!! Must be the thrill of a lifetime. If I were to go the Dory route I am def getting wet right?azbackpackr wrote:@Kwai Chang
No dory owners have signed on, although I did invite one. We've found several whitewater kayakers and 6 boatmen with rafts to go on our trip. We do have room for one more person, by the way. We'd prefer a female since only 4 out of the 16 are females. Newbie would be fine, but needs to be available for 25 days. We rig Oct 15, launch Oct 16, taking out at Pearce on or about Nov 7.

A common misunderstanding in wilderness medicine at the Wilderness First Responder (WFR) and Wilderness First Aid (WFA) level revolves around the question of medication administration. A reputable wilderness medicine program, following the WFR and WFA Scope of Practice Documents, would not be instructing a WFA or WFR course graduate to stock their personal first aid kits with prescription medication with the intention of using this on a patient. Nor would the reputable wilderness medicine program be advising WFA and WFR course graduates to be making decisions on the need for prescription (Rx) medication use by a patient. This would be beyond the intended Scope of Practice of the WFA or WFR.
(dead link removed)The possession and administration of epinephrine by laypeople is a complex issue. Support for laypeople using epinephrine for anaphylaxis amongst jurisdictions, including from country to country, varies considerably. It is important to encourage students to become familiar with any specific regulations in this regard and to know the implications. Organizations should be strongly encouraged to seek advice from a lawyer and/or guidance from a person acting as a medical advisor before deciding to initiate a policy that includes the emergency use of injectable epinephrine.
The pharmaceutical company under fire for increasing the cost of its life-saving EpiPen has been criticized by Hillary Clinton — despite the fact that the manufacturer donated significantly to the Clinton Foundation.joebartels wrote:- it was $57 in 2007 when Mylan bought the company
- Bernie says it costs a just a few dollars to make
- looks like it's 0.3mg in the video* ( and people complain about the price of cocaine )
- Mylan now earns around $1.2 billion in profits
* possibly a two pack so it's not totally ridiculous

...and yet she's released a plan to end price gouging by big pharma (unlike Trump). Just because rich people/corporations donate to a candidate doesn't make it a bribe.Widowmaker wrote:@chumley
Don't forget Hillary that company is backing her now.
