Geocaching EMS RS, I'm One, U?

Recommended Posts

Used to be a Firefighter, Paramedic, and Deputy Sheriff.....


No money in firefighting, left EMS because of burnout, and quit Law Enforcement because of wifes job and endless relocating, and wasn't making enough money.


If I could, I would go back to Law Enforcement......those were the days.

My brother's an EMT, and CPR instructor, now working on his nursing degree, he plans to be a flight nurse with one of the local helicopter rescue teams.


We're both active Red Cross volunteers.


I've done some training with a local Search and Rescue group, and I plan to join, but I'm still a bit to young for their liking...


I'm also planning to be a ski patroller once I'm old enough.


I plan to go to college to become a paramedic or a police officer, or maybe a police officer who's a paramedic. I dunno...

My brother is a Fire Fighter and I have tried to get him into caching a few time. He has a PDA type GPS and has gone with me a couple time. He even set up his own account but to date has not used it.


Together we did place a cache Firefighter Cross that is sort of remote and had only 2 finds thus far. The second find is a Fire Fighter friend of mine.

Former volunteer Firefighter/EMT in VA and VT. Also did alot of ER work, in high school as a Volunteer, then right after as an orderly, so I got to see both ends of the carnage.

When you're 16 and have someone die (especially when they are young too) when you're part of the team trying to save them is quite the formative experience.

Hey GeoGrass....

I have to ask, how did GeoGrass come to be your handle? I have visions of the wife pushing a lawn mower and you laying in front of it, with your backside high ;)

They will chime in.


I know of one policeman who offered to show me the underside of the Brooklyn Bridge or the George Washington Bridge. Of course, I would have to look quick so I could see it before I hit the water. :huh:

i dont think you would see much of the underside of the bridge, going over head first.
