    I generally never say unless I have actually done, hence I dont pitch in on a lot of subjects.. only things I done and know about.

    First, do 3 years in the infantry, with at least 2 tours to the sandbox. Then do 3 years there as a merc. Then you'll have 400k in the bank, which will set you up for a very nice life in Chile, Uruguay, Portugal, Nicaraugua. Just dont take more than 10% of your money there. Leave it safely invested in the US.

    yes, you have a problem. Steady lady in your life? Kids? Got a passport? Consider joining iPSC combat shooting clubs? There's one in Pretoria, and in Durbin, last I knew, admittedly 40 years ago. Those matches are good places to meet people with connections (and money) Barry Miller used to be the contact guy, or Gerry Gore. Both would now be in late 70's, or older tho.

    The area code is Mass. and the school is in Mexico.

    I am not setting foot in either place.

    And I guarantee they can not meet my employment requirements.

    Careful now. Just because you don't get a bunch of takers jumping at the fantastic opportunity that you have provided so much information about in the first 24 hours after posting is no reason to post it again. It smacks of desperation.......and gets kind of spammy.

    Its very off.. I think it similar to the other post about wanting instructors for some wild piece of land In mexico.
    It just sounds very very very off.. no details? no nothing..
    and yeah, it just feels intuitively UNSAFE.. I highly doubt OP would receive any reply..
    ( I am Almost at the level of survival instructor) and in Southern Africa..
    Even if I where closer I would not even question or apply... just have that weird "missing organ feeling"

    "Missing organ feeling"? LOL Like waking up in a bathtub full of ice with stiches in your abdomen?

    Can I use that?

    Same guy that posted the Survival instructor thread, revived this one as well....that why I asked how many times he was gonna post it.

    That other quote was originally posted by "jayd" kinda a leftover troll......that isn't around.

    I agree with y'all point... "Why in heck would anyone in there right mind want to answer a cold ad like this and expect to have it end well....or ever be heard from again".

    If you're in the US, young enough, healthy enough join the army! I went through my survival schools jungle, desert, mountain and a few others courtesy of uncle Sammy. Along with air assault and jump training. Otherwise the only one I know of is in Panama and is VERY expensive. ( somewhere around $15K plus travel)
    If by what I have learned over the years, allow me to help one person to start to prepare. If all the mistakes I have made, let me give one person the wisdom that allows them to save their life or the life of a loved one in an emergency. Then I will truly know that all the work I have done will have been worth every minute.

    36 years old, but am strong and healthy enough and would easily pass the fitness test.. but in South Africa with a decent job and a family..
    I would love to get in survival teaching/mentoring in my free time.. eventually as a business.. I am doing that here and there where I can.
    I am almost did join our army when I left school... but advised against it due to many situations of our army not being the same as it was once was (we where considered one of the best ground forces back in the 70ies and early 80ies)

    Respectfully, that is the most frightening comment I have read on this entire site, and I make it a point to read here at least once a day. Without experience you will be feeding false information and half truths to folks who will trust what they have learned from you and head into the backcountry. Will you own the responsibility of their deaths or shrug it off? Step down from any ideas of instructing survival until you have a year of living it, or at least three weeks in each season completely unplugged. To do anything less is either arrogant, ignorant, or criminally negligent.

    If you are addressing Antony Raison......You have not read any of this thread......

    Go back a re-read all of it, then come back and give us an opinion.
