We are in Argentina writing about Global Rescue from personal experience. A few days ago, Mary Innocenzi had trouble removing a contact lens after a particularly windy, dusty, day on the Malleo River. Her eyes were dry and scratchy when she got back to the lodge, but didn't think too much about it. The next morning she had excuriating pain on the left side of her face and couldn't open her left eye. We decided to take her into the clinic in San Martin de los Andes. On the way we learned that she had Global Rescue medical evacuation insurance so we called them from my cell phone in the car.
We had heard reports about how good Global Rescue is in extreme medical emergencies and I wondered how this would go. We certainly had an emergency, but it wasn't like a fractured pelvis in the middle of Bolivia or something like that. We were in a comfortable vehichle a few minutes away from good medical care. Well, I have to tell you that our experience with Global Rescue was over the top. Not only did they stay in constant contact with us, but they wanted to know all the details of treatment and were very concerned about Mary's condition. Even after seeing a doctor in the local clinic and returning to the lodge, Scott from Global Rescue called several times to follow up on Mary and the treatment. We were all very impressed and decided right then and there that this is the insurance company we want in any emergency while traveling anywhere!
Mary suffered a cut cornea and has not had a comfortable week, but she continues to fish with an eye patch and she says it's getting better everyday.
Hair Clips for Rod Clips
Ted & Ginger Reznik are with us in Argentina and have come up with an inexpensive, clever way of keeping their rods safe and organized in the guide vehicles everyday —when they break down their 4-piece rods into two pieces they use hair clips to keep the pieces together. By sliding one end of the second section into the neoprene reel cover on the first section, both sections are held securely together with the hair clip. It's simple and easy, and if a clip is lost, it's cheap to replace. Great Idea! Thanks Ted & Ginger.
