Hi! My name is Rich Carlson -- adventure travel addict and technical rescue, rigging and rappelling instructor. Since 1990 I have trained thousands of adventurers, professional guides and rescue teams across the Americas and around the world. Now you can follow my blog and join me as I share the adventure through entertaining stories and beautiful images, plus technical advice, gear reviews and minimalist travel tips.
... and be sure to check out our Event Calendar for upcoming rigging, rescue and rappelling workshops, as well as service projects and adventure travel opportunities.
