    Florida Take Care - Hurricane Ian

    Saddle Death… Stay safe out there.

    I've hung in a good RCH for hours, no issues. I've taken good falls in a RCH too...no issues When tied in correctly in a rch, you're point of restraint is front and center and the leg loops are tied in as well, spreading the force. Most saddle bridges are at each hip and back of mid thy...

    Saddle Death… Stay safe out there.

    So giving technical advice that could kill you over the internet in an uncontrolled environment might have been a bad idea?
