John - the question is more "how were you trained to donate your air to a buddy in need?" (or to go to it if your primary fails or has a problem)

Having a back-up source of air in a rapidly accessible and known location (virtually an automatic reaction) is the most important aspect of a primary / alternate source. You need to be able to go to your back-up to donate it or to use it as a well trained and rehearsed, essentially automatic reflex.

There is specific training for use of a long primary and bungeed alternate. If you chose that route, be sure to get proper instruction and rehearse the procedure until its an automatic reflex.
