More about Allen White
Based out of northeast Georgia, I am in my eleventh year of owning/ operating a year-round outdoor program ministry for youth, and eighth year of working as a full-time ALS-unit medic and member of the High Angle Rescue Team as a climbing medic (Tallulah Gorge and Currahee Mtn). My first experience with SOLO was attending the “mothership” for a WEMT module course in the winter of ʼ93. The ripple effect of that first course, both personally and professionally, continues even today. As a traveling ʻambassadorʼ for SOLO, it is exciting to see students of all backgrounds unite around the common table of ʻpatient careʼ in becoming backcountry.
