Ep 19 - with Dave Stice (A.K.A Nice guy Dave)


Nice guy Dave joins me on this podcast to talk about the recent 'Aerial Rescue Challenge' competition/event that was the brainchild of Dave with the backing from Wesspur.

This was an idea Dave had for about 20 years, and it was heavily focused on determining injuries, what the best course of action is, what is paramount to be done in the tree and what injuries can be dealt with once on the ground.

Dan shares his experiences from a competitior, and Dave shares his thought about the organization and what he saw througout the weekend.

We also talk about the systems we had to use during the competition, always being on two indepentent climbing systems (or using a backup), and when and how this might become the standard in arboriculture. 

Thanks to all of those who but time, effort and money into making the aerial rescue competition the huge success that it was.
