Scotland – Part 3 (The Burger Van & Other Stuff)
Recap (just encase you aint paying attention – you listening at the back?)
- I is still Bryn ( Daltons roving reporter extraordinaire)
- We are with our furiends Trossachs Search and Rescue team in Scotland (they are a bit ace!)
- Rescued dad from field (quite impressive)
- Rescued typist from river (just as impressive)
- I played fetch (highlight of day)
- Are now hunting for the burger van??!!
Yes my furiends an actual burger van, where the two legs ate burgers and haggis and sausages and drank cups of tea and I got nowt. I will have to reread my contract!
So once they had all stuffed their faces we headed off to our second fire station of the day (at this news I thought typist was going to faint!) to do some enclosed spaces rescues, at this news typist nearly did faint as she is not a fan of small places.
So yet again typist and dad changed clothes (3rd change for typist, 2nd for dad) and set off on their hands and knees. Stuart knew I was more into sticks than small details so he didn’t do a lot of explaining on how these searches work; however I assume it is the same principal as an open area search using smells on wind, and guiding the handler in to the body.
Once typist and dad were in position we sent in Gayle and Taz, who did a super job of rescuing them both and making sure typist was still breathing.
And then we sent in Iain and Glen, and as typist was getting acclimatised she remembered to take some photos
and a video of being found
Stuart did distract me from my stick long enough to tell me that all the training is carried out as play, with the reward being a favourite toy. What an ace idea!!
Once we had rescued dad and typist for the second time,
I got them to pose for some group photos
