... I want to buy, a cheap, used, Stokes Litter, preferably with a plastic base, inside of the aluminium cage, and in one piece, not a split unit.

"Why Wolfie,why?"

Because, I had a Wolfie moment, and when I was in Wolfie Deep Thought, this cool idea came to me...

My kayak trailer holds four craft, we own three. If I tie down a litter, on the remaining top bars, in place of the last kayak, I can stow my two swags, two camp stretchers, and two chairs inside it.

How cool is that?

Anyone have ANY idea, where I can get one of these things, at a GOOD price?

Cheers

Wolfie

Johnsie, thank you. I will follow up on Monday, and as you say, they may have one out of spec, and may be willing to sell it, instead of using it in classroom only pracs.

Thank you again...

CHC would probably be your best bet as they do a lot of rig work and nothing in the oil and gas game has a long life including personal.

Eric, knowing my luck, I'd make that kayak, and one morning, when my back is turned, when I'm setting up my kayak, I hear a voice, trailing up the river...."Ian, Ian, what's with this getting bigger th....SHlT!! IAN!!! WHAT IS GOING ON...IAN!!!!!!!"

Come to think of it, sounds like a plan....

The season, is during the last 42 minutes of the setting waning moon, during the summer solstice, when the Stokes, who by this time, have managed to get their body weight up, in readiness for the harsh winter ahead. Funny thing though, it also seems to me, that this it is, the very same window of opportunity available to me as well..... but I don't get the whole 42 minutes.....

Done that!

When I was with the State Emergency Service, we used to train at Brownhill Creek, and other vertical areas. One poor sucker was short strawed to be the patient, and had to have a Video Camera on them, so that at de-brief, others could see what a rough ride they gave.

These videos always looked like the pre cursors to the Funniest Home Video's you see now on the telly.

I never got short strawed, thankfully, nothing against the guys in my unit, but I wouldn't trust my life with them. Sorry guys....

Whoa!!!

I got LOTSA numbers to call.... thanks Member Number 1. Wow, when you say that out aloud, like the member name thing, it sounds like a happy child, who has just had her cat rescued from a tree by Batman & Robin.

"Wow, thank you Member Number 1."

Member Number 1 leans down, and gently pats the child, and her pussy... whoops... cat.

The child looks up, smiling..."Why do you wear your underpants over your leotards?"

"It's a superhero thing darling, ask your mother...."

He then flies off into the sunset.....

* backpackers in rental troopie.

Where was it?

Wolfie,

Your comment about being put in a stokes brought back some bad memories for me as well.

When I joined the ambulance service in 1980 they made each traineee in our group be the patient and the rest of the class had to strap you into a stokes and lower you off the roof of a two storey building. I thought I was deadset in major strife given the fact that everyone doing the exercise had never used one before. Was I glad to reach the ground.

It was much more fun siiitng out in front of the class and self adminstering Enotnox (like laughing gas) to yourself until you couldn't hold the mask on any longer. They made us do all of these things to ourselves so we knew what it would be like to do it to a real patient in the field. Training Officers definitely had a nasty streak in them.

Mate if you try places like your local SES, Fire or Ambulance service you should be able to round one up for a fair price I would think. If you draw a blank drop me an email and I can refer you on to a guy here in Brisbane who may be able to help and then we would just have to arrange to get one to you.

Have a good one.

Brian, I will keep you in mind.

Thank you.

Enotnox.... sounds wild.....

We used to have to do familiarisation evenings each time a different sort of ambulance came into service. I always wanted to know where they kept those green tubes you suck on, to ease the pain.

Never did find them......
