Are there any gear-at-hand kind of solutions for when your riding buddy get's messed up in the back-country and his bike has to be left behind?

A couple of things that come to my mind are the following: (using parts from buddie's bike)
-use one or more tubes (partially inflated) from the tires to help create a stabalization mechanism, possibly a cast or something similar
-use some of the various tubing off of your buddies bike to make a tracheotome
-use the seat and some rope to create a neck/back brace

So, key problem with my ideas so far. No, easy way to haul out the messed up riding buddy. I guess two people would have to crash then I could build a rickshaw and make brshooter pull it.
if its just you and your buddy riding you might be from wyoming, and even though you think that you cant quit him...

I would think you got to stabalize him the best u can and leave him, so u can ride for help...

I've been waiting for a gay cowboy reference from that show that came out a couple of years a go. Always thought it was an interesting choice to claim those gay cowboys in the movie were in WY given the Matthew Sheppard situation years a go.

While there's some sheep in WY today in UT there is far more of those fucki*& stick figure family stickers which I don't get at all. I guess that way a pedophile has a readily available check list to use to be sure he gets all the kids. Welcome to Utah where bishops and and boy-scout leaders get an easy check list. Much easier than catching a sheep with those damn velcro gloves.

Starskey, if you are lurking let me know how many sessions that training requires?
I better start getting trained and geared up as spring will probably sneak up on me.

Man, looking to do a little closer ride this Holiday weekend.
The weather looks pretty crappy Sun, Monday.

Could be a 5 Mile repeat. At least I don't have to drive 4-5 hours
to be miserable.

As I recall no one should know more about gravity being a bitch than you.

Actually you could be considered an authority on the matter.

Hey now, I've seen Wyoming mini vans too.
