We as athletes and adventurers do countless things to set ourselves up for success. From having a training routine to having a nutritionist to making sure we have the best gear available to us. All these things we do to make sure everything goes right, but what happens when everything goes wrong?
It is Friday evening and you and your best riding buddy have just arrived at your favorite local trailhead. Cracking a beer, the two of you stuff your packs with random items such as an extra layer for warmth and a light just in case your ride goes longer. You are both excited to get out on the trail as the work week comes to a close. Looking out you notice some big dark clouds lingering in the distance, but think nothing of it.
As the two of you take off down the trail to start the ride, you hear a faint yell behind you. Looking back you don’t see your friend on the trail any longer. Turning quickly and returning up the trail, you find your friend has tumbled off the trail. Yelling repeatedly down to him, your friend does not respond and appears unconscious. What are you going to do?
