    Our school has been running 10 years, we have had close on 2700 student over this time period, and only Now We have had enough students to be High ranking enough to be promoted to this Rank, in 10 years out of 2700 students only 12 Went through all the requiremets to be eligable for the ranking, and there after where still hand selected To get this ranking.

    It's a pleasure, I will continue sharing the journey, What we plan to build here in southern Africa, is likely going to become one of the foremost Wilderness survival schools in the world in Time, we have extremely dedicated and passionate people that are very very good at what they do.

You should be very proud of yourself for your accomplishments. I hope you and your lady celebrated your achievement.

    As an educator, I enjoy seeing people continue there education in whatever pathway and capacity they choose. The process of continually upgrading and redefining your goals, and then setting out to achieve them is truly how education works.

    Congratulations on your hard work and achievement.

    Thank you Alan Now its more of an opportunity to take a role as a mentor and trainer and help those learn and grow as I do also, but not really about me, but others that I take into wild places and ensure they get out something useful for themselves.

    I have my youtube channel hahaha... but yeah actually something might be in the works... we have some company locally that has shown some interest in getting a survival show up and going.. but I will have to wait and see what pans out.
    For now I am happy to continue as I am, helping where I can and filming what I can when I get the opportunity to do so.

    congrats, that is awesome
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?
