Hard to believe it’s been 365 days since I wrote my intro about “learning from the masters”
Time flies when you’re having fun. If you’d have asked me 366 days ago, if one could form real friendships through a screen and keyboard, with people they have never met, thousands of miles away, I’d probably have said no- but what the hell did I know.


I have learned so much here: how to strike a platform, how to strike a pressure point, how to hide in plain sight, how to brain tan a hide, how to slice a “pie”, how to layer my gear, how to survive almost anything, how to make almost anything from almost nothing…how to keep ground beef for 15+ years, what Muddy does on his days off, how to read between the lines, how to voice an opinion, when I shouldn’t voice my opinion (hee hee working on that), how to use a stone as toilet paper,

I could go on and on…..about history, film, travel, food, politics, blade-ware, mini kits, shelter, cordage, secure passwords, squirrel snares, lady boys and dry tinder!

Above all I’ve learned about community. I am not alone in my thoughts and my ways, I am part of a strong and vibrant community of survivors and I feel lucky! Seeing the shear amount of amazing folks here has restored my faith in humanity. I have made meaningful friendships on here that will last a lifetime.

Thank you Ron, Karen and each and every one of ya’z for your knowledge, patience and wisdom and the laughs, oh- my -dear- god -the laughs! :lol:/>

To you “special” Hoodlums that have mentored me from day 1- you’ve made this one of the most memorable years of my little life and welcomed me like long lost family into the fold! Yeah, you know who you are :yes:/> I'll definetly be re-newing my membership for the foundation with the automatic re-newal option this time.

You guys rock!!!

AOC

AOC,

This place is a better place because of people like you. Ron and Karen's vision for this forum was a way he could offer support for their videos. But it grew into so much more. It is the support of people just like you that makes this place thrive.
