I read it. Also many of the comments. While some people obviously give good advice on the rescue itself, I like the one that said this:
"The only thing I wouldn't have done is to pin a vague business analogy onto the end of the description, I appreciate it's what you do for a living, but I don't think this near-death experience of a friend deserves inclusion into any future powerpoint presentations or anything."
On my end, let's consider what is going on here on a high level: you see someone do a bad job of leading a rescue (first thing take off ski holding person from sinking further
), but still achieve a good end result. This is used to convince me to spend money on dude's company to develop my staff's skills and knowledge. LMFAO. This is retarded
Anyway, this quote from LEAD takes the cake:
"I do know Lee thinks it was perfect."
Really? Then Lee is delusional. I can understand that he's grateful and happy to be alive - who wouldn't be? I would be grateful and happy in his place, too. On the other hand, if he doesn't understand the multiple points of failure, well, I don't really know what to say then.
Once I had to dig myself out while my partner sat at the ridge above the crown. When I finished getting out (which took time and was hard, believe me) I still had to wait for him to get to me, he had not started yet. I don't think this makes him a douche - he was scared for his life, I understand this. He's still a "friend". On the other hand, this did tell me that I should not depend on him in the future. Guess if I rode more bc with him? Maybe I'm weird
