Let's get over the Hump!

Good Morning from John Grabau!


A Colorado search and rescue team was able to locate a lost pair of hikers in only a few hours using a drone.


Technology helped rescue two men and their dog who got lost when hiking the Devil’s Head trail in Colorado. The men had limited cell service, so thankfully they were able to call 911. But instead of an all-night search with lots of volunteers, Douglas County Search and Rescue Team used a drone to find them - and it only took a few hours!

And not only did the drone help find the lost hikers faster, the technology is a lot more budget friendly for their all-volunteer team that’s funded primarily on donations.

“Now, scientifically we try to plot out a lot more where the subject is,” Incident Commander Bruce Fosdick explains. “We use a lot of different assets. Dogs, drones, helicopters. We try to do a lot more with a lot less people and try to get it done a lot quicker.”

Morgan’s Inspiration Island in San Antonio, Texas is is an amazing new water park built to let disabled kids and their families enjoy the fun, too.


The most handicap-accessible water park in the U.S. has opened in San Antonio, Texas. Morgan’s Inspiration Island has dozens of features for kids with disabilities and with sensory issues - including waterproof wheelchairs that are available for free!

The $17 million park is a nonprofit organization and they offer passes to kids who have trouble waiting in line, can adjust the water temperature for those with sensory issues, and the water is constantly filtered and reused for kids with immune issues.

All rides are wheelchair accessible, and each visitor with disabilities gets free admission! And kids who tend to wander get waterproof wristbands with GPS so parents and staff can find them in a hurry if they need to.

The water park is an extension of the theme park next door, Morgan’s Wonderland, which was also designed with those with special needs in mind. Dozens of physical therapists, doctors, caregivers, and families with disabilities were consulted to ensure this park offers an amazing experience for everyone.
