So, long story short...I went and did some training, and one of the guest instructors offered me an opportunity to do some guest lectures at his school if a few things worked out. After some more talk, we are down to me getting my lesson plan and requirements planned out... In service to that, I let the word out in my acquaintance circle that I am offering some survival skills in exchange for helping me streamline my plan. Went out today, spent about 5 hours in the woods, guiding and teaching. Had a blast, imparted a lot of knowledge and some skills, and am feeling a lot better about how far along my plan is. Highlights include: Seep well Pinning a snake with my blowgun Killing a snake with a tac shovel Introducing him to basic trapping and navigation Teaching him to make atlatl and darts Teaching him to make and hit close targets with a rabbit stick Feeling relaxed more than anything, having gone out there and done it. WAY farther along in my skills and teaching ability than I thought I was, and it is extremely satisfying to see the light bulb come on and see somebody do something a a dozen tries that took you months of research and practice to discover. Bottom line, I am going to dig a little deeper into a career change. This is way better than what I have been doing.
