    Climbing without aerial rescue?

    Climbing without aerial rescue?

    We have our first round of 'Settlement' talks in November with QC's from both sides where the case will be discussed and QC's and lawyers will sit around and play 'Poker' until an agreement is reached. That could go to 2/3/4 more meetings meaning many more months. It seems for the last 3 years we have become a cottage industry where QC's, lawyers, case mangers, expert witnesses, specialists of every description are all getting paid for their services and in the meantime we have had not a penny. It is what it is though.

    Climbing without aerial rescue?

    Things can ALWAYS go wrong no matter. I worked on rigging jobs for years without a hitch. One day something went wrong and I am now in a wheelchair. I will talk about the accident when insurance and everything else is sorted but my advice is to NOT cut corners and ensure everything is done properly and all bases are covered....period!
