If you are an alumni of Survival 101 and got robbed of cold, miserable conditions during your class, I had great news!
This weekend looks like it is going to be great training weather to boost your numbers. No longer do you have to be class 53/44, you can refresh your skills and move up in the world to Class 16/38!!
I have a couple open spots, so email me at firstname.lastname@example.org tuition is free for alumni
If they can have websites to help find dates, then why not neighbors?
This is Greg with a tranquilized grizzly. He is a good friend of mine, a member of my SAR team, an uncle to my son, and a hard worker. Unfortunately for me, he just got a job as a wildlife ranger based out of Gatlinburg, so he can’t be my neighbor. I figure I can try to get him settled as close to me as I can though.
So, if you have any of the following opportunities:
And it is within 45 minutes of Gatlinburg, preferably on the Townsend side.
Shoot me an email at email@example.com – Put “Greg” in the subject line.
So here is Greg’s neighbor profile:
5’10 – 200 pounds. He can cook and keeps a clean house
A former UT football player, he can move really heavy stuff if you need help.
A seasoned Search & Rescue pro that can help save your life if needed…
With a Masters in Exercise Physiology, he can get you in shape, give you nutrition advice, or anything else along those lines. He is a fast learner, getting handier by the day, and a great conversationalist.
Trained to deal with bears, wild hogs, and a host of other wildlife, he is skilled with firearms and has the versatile skills that come with working in remote areas. He has also cleared federal background and drug testing requirements.
Once upon a time, you counted on your neighbors. They were your helpers, your lifeline to the community, your protectors, and your friends. In our disjointed world, they are not valued as much nowadays, but if you are looking for a good one, then here is your chance.
Please push this out on your social media if you have friends in that area.
