Survival

Introductions

Uploaded on January 20, 2009

Since this section was empty I thought I would start it out with introductions from prospective users.

My name is Jamie and I just signed up on F & S. I am a service Survival Instructor. By regs, I can't say which service due to affiliation issues but I have taught over 10,000 students and I have taught in the US, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Djibouti and Qatar. I teach global survival techniques and I like to learn as much as I can. I currently live in Eastern Washington and enjoy my off-duty time camping and hiking. I hope to get into hunting this year and more archery pursuits. I am originally from Texas but I have traveled a lot around the US.

Take care and God bless!

Jamie,

Glad to make your acquaintance. I am Carney. I live in SW Washington. I don't know how far east you live, but Goldendale is about as far east I ever have occasion to go. I have a friend in Lyle and sometimes spend a few days on his property in the High Prairie.

Years ago I lived and worked in the Darien Province of Panama' and had a friend whose stepfather was a retired instructor at the NASA Jungle Survival School. I learned a lot from him! Did you do any of your trainng in Panama' or was that "before your time"?

Hi Carney, that was way before my time but I know guys who were down there as well as guys who taught at the Jungle School in the Phillipines. I believe the Panama school was Army run whereas the PI school was Air Force. I will start some new threads as time passes. Great to meet you.

Take care and God bless,
Jamie

Hi Jamie, being a handicapped hunter I could probably use some good survival tips. I was hunting in some coal mine stripper hills & in the rain. I had on a rubber rainsuit and it overheated me so bad I almost had a stroke, and like never got out of those hills, I don't know if anyone hunts in those areas but it is hard enough getting through in the daylight. So I will be glad to hear any and all survival tips. Nice meeting you Jamie, my name is Shawn.

Hi Shawn, great to meet you. I don't like rubber for the exact reason you mentioned, it overheats you because the heat has no where to escape to. Gore-tex is good if you can afford it, if not then I like to get a good wool jacket on the outside and layers under it. I have worn cotton jackets and polypropylene under layers and stayed pretty warm without overheating and getting too soaked. I find its just a matter of finding the right balance that works for you. You also said getting in throughthe daylight, were you hunting at night? Let me know and I will share some more info as questions come up.

Take care and God bless you,
Jamie

Hi Dwayne, what part of Texas? I call El Paso my hometown but I originally grew up in Luling (best BBQ in the world), which is right near San Marcos. I was back a couple of years ago and gained 15 pounds in a month :). I miss the prickly pear rignt off the cactus.

Hi Jamin,

I live in Vancouver but have a daughter in Federal Way. A couple of years ago we vacationed on the Olympic Peninsula.

When I was a child we had a National Geographic Book called The Indians of the Americas. I spent hours looking through that book! It has been interesting both in Central America and here in the Pacific Northwest to become acquainted with peoples whom I had seen and read about as a child!

What is your tribe?

I'll be glad to share the Rocky Mountain perspective from the Wind River Range of Wyoming. I'm just putting the finishing touches on a treatise on wilderness survival and will soon embark upon the nightmare of publishing. My outdoor experience spans half a century and a couple of continents. I've had a few brushes with survival from which I've drawn some conclusions I'll be happy to share.

That treatise on survival is now in print and titled "Life in the Wild vs. the Alternative". It is available for $14.95 + $2.50 S&H payable to Dave Langerman sent to P. O. Box 1296, Lander, WY 82520. The reviews have all been very positive so far.
