Outward Bound, Morganton, NC.
A supplement to the North Carolina Outward Bound School's Instructor's Handbook, this field manual presents useful, but not required, information gleaned from old timers and resource books which may enable the instructor to conduct a better course. Section one considers advantages and disadvantages and provides directions and topographical maps for solo sites and campsites in the Table Rock, Green Cave, Toe River, and Worley's Cave areas. Section two delineates responsibilities of the logistics staff and procedures they use to organize the flow of equipment, transportation, and food. Section three reveals supplementary information about the area's geologic, human and natural history; natural phenomena; signs of time and direction; environmental concerns; and weather. Section four describes activities to build cooperation, talking games, solo activities, night activities, caving activities, simulations, Tyrolean traverse, and the ropes course, plus guidelines for cave leaders and lead climbers. Section five describes advanced rescue techniques including hauls, brakes, anchors, litter carries, rappel rescue, ropes course rescues, zip wire rescue system, and cave rescue. Medical concerns examined in section six include first aid kits, drugs, blisters, diarrhea, stings, bites, anaphylaxis, snakebite, and hypothermia. Section seven concentrates on winter considerations (first aid, frostbite, clothing, food, and equipment). Appendices present origins of names and knot diagrams. (NEC)
