On Friday, Jan 8, we departed into the Sipsey Wilderness for our Trip Leader training trip. Little did we know when we planned the outing that there would be single digit temperatures and iced over rivers.
We covered all necessary information as well as a simulated evacuation for an injury scenario. We almost had a group of hikers give us aid until we told them it was just training. Never-the-less, the trip was good and prepared us all for what can and may happen when enjoying our great outdoors.
