This week I head back to the motherland, Great Britain to attend the International World Extreme Medicine Conference and meet with the leading providers of wilderness medicine in the UK, Expedition & Wilderness Medicine (EWM). I'll be meeting up with founders of SOLO Dr Frank Hubbell and his wife Lee Frizzell to catch up on new developments in wilderness medicine and explore new avenues for the the develop of SOLO Schools. Anyone who's attended a SOLO Southeast WFR will know about my obsession with Dr Gordon Geisbrect (Professor Popsical!) and his somewhat unconventional approach to hypothermia research and the development of new science concerning cold injury. Well, I'll finally get to (hopefully) meet with him as he's a keynote speaker at the conference. The list of experts is endless and I can't wait to start adding new research and ideas to our curriculum, and no I will not be having tea with the queen!
