    'elo and welcome to the forum. Pay attention, read, and ask every question you can think of so you can get the most of your stay.

    I am doing just that and I am learning, but just remember you can only learn so much by sitting in front of the computer. You need to go out and practice the skills you are reading and asking about. Stay close to home while you practice and hone your skills. And if you ever do go out make sure you tell someone where you are going, give them an itinerary, and make sure you are prepared.

    You lose 100 points on "No Scouts." Although I do understand that your mother calls the shots. Many on here are or have been actively involved in Scouting. I firmly believe that it's the best place to start.

    You gain 50 points, however, for NOT planning on going out into the wild with nothing more than the clothes on your back & a knife.

    Add an extra 50 points for not bringing the word KNIFE up at all!

    You gain another 50 points for NOT holding Bear Grylls up as a shining example of a "Survival Mentor."

    You lose 15 points for poor spelling!

    But you get it back for not listing a bunch of vegetation to eat.

    You get another 50 points for not putting the title "Survival Expert" as your screen name, but will lose that if you don't explain the title of "Ranger."

    You stand to lose 100 points for not knowing the Boy Scout Motto & telling how you've applied it to yourself.

    And if you can put up with me you'll gain another 500 points!

    You also can get extra points if you know any good "Lawyer" jokes!

    Remember, we're the "Wolf-Pack!" Not the "Pussy-cats."

    Well the Ranger part Ive read about the green berets and the book series "Rangers Aprentice" is based on the green berets back in midevil tmes and I've used that name for many video games so ya lol. Im ready for the 500 points sir! ^__^. And for the joke.. hmm..

    A man woke up in a hospital bed and called for his doctor. He asked "Give it to me straight. How long have I got?" The physician replied that he doubted that his patient would survive the night. The man then said "Call for my lawyer."

    When the lawyer arrived, the man asked for his physician to stand on one side of the bed, while the lawyer stood on the other. The man then laid back and closed his eyes. When he remained silent for several minutes, the physician asked what he had in mind.

    The man replied "Jesus died with a thief on either side, and I thought I'd check out the same way."
    Ive remembered this joke before but i had to copy and paste it from the site my friend told me. I tend to slaughter the joke when i try to repeat it :P

    well i rarely do welcomes, but as soon as i saw your post i knew the wicked wizard of the west would show up, so i'll add my 2 cents worth.
    if there is any points to be given out i will award a whole bunch of them for doing nols in the yukon, mad props if ya make it thru that son, and that comes from an old army ranger, if its worth anything to ya.

    Cool You're in the hole...

    You're down about quite a few points because of the knife thread & the 500 points are still "in progress." You didn't gain anything with the lawyer joke as jokes have to be funny, not factual! You also didn't "define Survival," or explain the Boy Scout Motto & tell us how you've applied it! Keep going!

    Points are only for half-lings & Americans...Canadians are exempt as they have their own problems to work out. That poor Boy Scout you hit shoulda known the motto, huh?

    Cool Yo, Ranger "wannabe" dude...

    Don't "diss" the Scouts; this happened in your neck of the woods:

    Check this thread out as well:

    http://www.wilderness-survival.net/f...ead.php?t=1136

    The Boy Scout motto is used by every Survival class that I know of, so you might just listen up; if your not playing us.
