P: Here we are out in the great Alaskan wilds, ready to go cross-country skiing!
P: I'm really glad you could join us, too, Doug.
D: Thanks for asking me to come along, Patrick and Yang Chen.
P: I think the three of us should really go over all those safety precautions. First, did you guys let someone know that you were going skiing and where you should be?
Y I told my mom. And my mom doesn't speak English.
D: Uh-huh. I told my all my friends. And they do speak English.
P: Good for you, Doug. This is important in case we get lost.
P: Don't worry. Yang Chen. By the way, did you check your poles and skis .
Y: 我的滑雪杖和滑雪板, they are in good shape.
D: And I checked my boots and bindings, too.
P: Great work, team! Does someone in the group have a map?
Y: I have the map!
P: We need extra food and extra drinks.
P: Yang Chen. What drinks did you bring?
P: Good. It will keep us warm. What about clothing?
P: How about the first aid kit?
Y: 急救箱? 我没有。
D: I've got it.
P: Doug is very valuable. Well, everyone., we should be skating in a group of at least three people. That way if one of us gets hurt, one person can stay with the injured person and the other can go get help.
Y: We are going to get hurt?
P: That's why we invited Doug.
D: Gee thanks, guys.
P: Well, I guess we are ready to go then! Let's go cross country skiing.
